Latest info on COVID-19

Meeting participants are reminded that in line with the guidance from the Austrian authorities for the workplace and recommendations of the VIC Medical Service, all persons entering the VIC are required to comply with the low epidemiological risk criteria as defined by the Host Country:

  • proof of a full vaccination not older than 360 days and valid from the date of second vaccination (from 6 December the validity will be reduced to 270 days); or proof of full vaccination with a vaccine that does not require a second shot (e.g. Johnson & Johnson) not older than 360 days and valid from the 22nd day after vaccination (from 3 January a second shot will be required); or proof of one vaccination dose not older than 360 days following a positive PCR test or positive antibodies test; or proof of full vaccination and a booster shot not older than 360 days.
  • a certificate of recovery from COVID-19 illness not older than 180 days.
  • proof of a negative PCR test not older than 48 hours.

Where meetings and conferences at the VIC do take place with more than 25 participants, participants must also show proof of a valid PCR test not older than 48 hours, even if they are vaccinated or recovered.

In this regard, by swiping their grounds pass/badge, meeting participants entering the VIC declare that they possess valid documentation meeting one or more of these criteria. They also confirm that they will produce the documentation to the conference, meeting and event organizers, UN Security and Safety Service (UNSSS) officers or VIC Medical Service, if required. In addition, participants are required to provide their contact details to the meeting organizers to facilitate contract tracing if needed, keep a distance of at least two meters and wear FFP2 masks in meeting rooms and in all VIC common areas.
