COVID-19 Travel Policies

Please check country-specific requirements for entry to Austria.  You may also have specific requirements for travel out of your country.  

The so-called 3-G rule is in effect for visitors from all countries. In order to travel to Austria without quarantine requirements, you must provide either:

  • a valid proof of vaccination or

  • a negative Covid-test or

  • proof of recovery

Travelers without any of the 3-G options above are allowed to enter Austria but are required to register upon entry (pre-travel clearance) and quarantine for 10 days. 

Important!Due to these travel quarantine restrictions, travel is not advised for those who do not qualify

under the 3-G rule and the GHL Program is unable to sponsor travel/attendance to the

summit for those travelers - further, we will only sponsor summit participants who have 

been fully vaccinated with an approved COVID-19 vaccine.


The GHL will cover your 10-day isolation costs should you contract Covid during/to the meetings in Vienna.  Once again, we will only sponsor participants that have been fully vaccinated with an approved COVID-19 vaccine.


Princeton University's travel agency is World Travel, and our designated travel agent is Ms. Stephanie Shores. Please be in touch with Ms. Shores about your air, train, and hotel accommodations.

Please identify yourself as part of the “GHL-Faculty Summit.” 

We will be in touch soon about per diem reimbursements.
