If you develop symptoms of a COVID 19 illness (dry cough, fever, shortness of breath, loss of the sense of smell and/or taste, etc.) during your stay, please take a Covid test (antigen self-test or PCR-Gurgl test with laboratory result). If this test is positive, you will be subject to the traffic restrictions listed below. If you have any questions regarding your Corona disease, please feel free to call the health hotline 1450. Please also inform your host about your covid infection.

HERE you will find more information about what happens if you get sick during your holiday.

Traffic restrictions in case of a covid-19 infection:

  • Mask requirement when encountering others (exception: outdoors with two meters distance).
  • No entry of vulnerable facilities: Hospital, nursing homes and homes for the elderly (does not apply to employees).
  • The duration of the traffic restriction is valid for 10 days. After 5 days it's possible to test you free.

3G proof

If the “3 must have rule” is required for access, persons from 12 years and up need either a certificate of a negative Covid test, a valid vaccination or a recovery document.

The following regulations apply:


Vaccination certificate:

Currently there are five vaccines licensed in Austria: BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Janssen Pharmaceutica NV and Novavax. Additional vaccines are currently under review by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

The following periods of validity and guidelines apply to vaccination certificates:

  • if you have been vaccinated twice, your 3-G proof is valid for 270 days = 9 months from the day of the second vaccination. For children up to 18 years the proof is valid for an unlimited period of time.
  • if you have been vaccinated once, with a vaccine that requires only one dose, then your 3-G certificate is valid for 270 days = 9 months from the 22nd day after vaccination. For children up to 18 years of age, the certificate is valid for an unlimited period of time.
  • if you have been vaccinated once and had Corona before, then your 3-G proof is valid for 270 days = 9 months. The interval between illness and vaccination must be at least 21 days. For children up to 18 years of age, the certificate is valid for an unlimited period of time.
  • if you have been vaccinated twice and had Corona before, your 3-G certificate is valid for 365 days = 12 months.
  • if you have been vaccinated at least three times, your 3-G certificate is valid for 365 days = 12 months. The interval of the last vaccination must be at least 90 days.



  • if you have had Corona in the last 6 months = 180 days, then this counts as 3-G proof.
  • if you have been in quarantine for Corona disease in the last 6 months = 180 days, then this counts as 3-G proof.


Certificate of a negative Covid test:

  • if you have a negative PCR test from a competent authority, which is not older than 72 hours, then this is considered as 3-G proof.
  • if you have a negative antigen test from an competent authority, which is not older than 24 hours, then this is considered as 3-G proof.


PCR tests:

In Ötztal all residents, employees and guests will have the opportunity to take a free PCR test 5 times a month. The distribution and dispensing stations are located in the local supermarkets at SPAR and MPreis. It is a self-test (gargle test).

To participate, a one-time registration is necessary, then up to 5 PCR tests per month and per person can be collected and performed.
