On March 5, all Covid protection measures will be lifted except for mandatory FFP2 masks on public transports and in essential shops (supermarkets, post offices, banks, pharmacies),” the statement of Austria’s official travel portal reads.
Such a statement suggests that all persons will be able to enter all types of accommodation, restaurants, cafes, cultural institutions, and leisure centres without having to present a valid vaccination or recovery certificate.
In addition to the two certificates mentioned above, a negative test result will also no longer be required when attending one of these places, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.
Apart from removing the domestic measures, the authorities have announced that clubs will also open up again starting from March 5.
Austria currently applies the “3-G-Rule” for entry to the country. This means that all travellers who hold a valid certificate that proves that the holder has been recovered, vaccinated, or has tested negative recently can enter Austria for travel purposes.
“To prove your “3-G” status, you can use the NHS Covid app or the EU Covid Pass. Printed versions and medical certificates of vaccination or recovery are also accepted,” the authorities noted.
A vaccination certificate is considered valid when reaching Austria as long as the document indicates that the holder has completed primary vaccination with one of the accepted vaccines within the last 270 days. Those who have been vaccinated more than nine months ago need to receive a booster shot for their vaccination pass’ validity to be extended.
NANOMETA aims to bring together the international Nanotechnology, Photonics and Materials research communities where most recent and challenging results and plans are discussed in the informal setting on a glorious mountaineering resort. The technical programme will include invited and selected contributed papers in the areas of:
- low dimensional photonic materials and phenomena
- plasmonics and metamaterials, quantum nanophotonics
- topological light and matter
- artificial intelligence and nanophotonics
- advanced nanophotonic applications.
The conference will be organised in two oral parallel sessions (Nanophotonics and Metamaterials) and will feature joint plenary, tutorial and oral sessions to take place from Monday 28 March (all day) to Thursday 31 March 2022 (all day). The conference timetable will be arranged in a way that permits mid-day breaks for recreational activities and informal contact between participants.
Nanometa 2022 will present plenary and breakthrough talks. The conference will also feature a number of invited talks devoted to recent important advances in nanophotonics and metamaterials science.
