Austria has clarified that unvaccinated children up to the age of 18 are exempt from self-isolation if they’re travelling with an adult who has had both jabs.

Those aged 12 to 18 must have proof of a negative PCR or Lateral Flow Test, or a certificate showing they have recently recovered from coronavirus.

Children up to 12 years old are exempt from testing.

The Foreign Office said it understands that the UK’s vaccination certificates and proof of recovery are being accepted in Austria, but it urged travellers to check with their nearest Austrian embassy as this hasn’t been officially confirmed.

Unvaccinated people travelling to Austria will have to isolate for up to 10 days, although they can take a PCR test to end their quarantine on day five.
