Vaccines and health conditions

No vaccinations are required for entry into Austria. However, the Institute Pasteur recommends the tick-borne encephalitis vaccine for people planning to stay in a rural or forest area. Also remember to wear long-sleeved clothing when walking in the forest.

In addition, going on a trip abroad can be a good time to visit your doctor and check that all your other vaccinations are up to date.

Health care system in Austria

As everywhere in Europe, there are two types of hospitals in Austria : public and private. They are modern, well-equipped and provide high quality care thanks to highly competent staff.

Every city and region in the country has its own health infrastructure, even the most remote ones. In fact, the health system in Austria is renowned both for its quality and its accessibility! However, it is important to note that health care is still quite expensive, especially in the private sector, which is why it is important to take out international health insurance such as the Heyme World Pass.

In order to benefit from the same advantages as Austrians, foreigners must have their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). It will be necessary for any consultation or hospitalization in Austria.

All care in public facilities is reimbursed by social insurance, unlike private facilities where care is expensive. Public institutions indicate ''Kassenarzt or Alle Kassen'' on their practice. In case of emergency you can go to any establishment where the costs will be partially covered.


The price of a consultation at a general practitioner's costs between 40 and 60 €.


In the event of hospitalization, the patient must pay a daily fee of approximately 16€. In addition, 10% of the hospital fees are added to this.


The emergency pill is available to women of all ages without a prescription.

Screening locations

Self-tests are sold in pharmacies.
