Austria has excluded Russia from the list of "dangerous" countries for coronavirus. Now, Russians who have received both doses of the coronavirus vaccine may not comply with quarantine upon arrival in this country, said the head of the Austrian Foreign Ministry, Alexander Schallenberg.

However, none of the Russian vaccines are suitable for this: the Austrian authorities are ready to accept visitors who have been vaccinated by BioNtech / Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, Covishield or Sinopharm.

As specified in the Austrian embassy in Moscow, in order to enter the country, Russians will have to present "confirmation of a low epidemiological risk". This can be a certificate of recovery, a negative test for coronavirus, or a certificate of vaccination. However, for quarantine-free entry, at least two weeks must elapse between the last vaccination and the date of the border crossing.

In addition to Russia, China, Turkey, Bosnia and Kosovo were also excluded from the list of "dangerous" countries.

In addition, a number of coronavirus restrictions have been eased in the country since July 1. In particular, the country was again allowed to open restaurants, cafes and nightclubs with occupancy rates of no more than 75%. It also remains mandatory in the country to wear masks in shops and on public transport. Most public places are only allowed for those who have been previously vaccinated or have had the disease.

Recall that direct flights with the country were resumed in August 2020. However, all tourists arriving in the country had to carry a negative coronavirus test and go through a ten-day quarantine.

Previously, the EU allowed those who had been vaccinated with one of the EU-approved vaccines to enter European countries from third countries. The Russian Sputnik V vaccine has yet to be approved.
