SB22 Covid Travel Guidance

Last Updated: 31 March 2022



Snowbombing does not have any influence over the entry requirements into Austria and Germany. Whilst we are in close conversation with the Mayrhofen tourist board, the rules are ever-changing, so the information on this page may not always be up to date. 

Whilst we have made every effort to provide the most accurate information, we highly recommend that you continue to check the rules for entry into your chosen airport, and into Austria, as you approach your day of travel. 

We will shortly be following up with additional information regarding the SB22 In-Resort & Festival Rules once they have been confirmed to us by the Mayrhofen Tourist Board. 

Please read on for Travel Guidance as of 31st March 2022. All information is taken from the links below.

Requirements when entering Austria


Everyone entering Austria, whether flying direct into Austria or passing over the border from Germany, needs to show one of the following: 

● Proof of full vaccination (at least 2 jabs) OR proof of past infection (the medical document needs to show the date of recovery – for guests from the UK: an NHS email/text of a positive test is not sufficient)
OR a negative PCR test (valid for 72 hours) OR a negative LFT/antigen test (valid for 24 hours)
This applies to arrivals from all countries.

You must bring FFP2 masks with you for your stay in Mayrhofen and for travelling. They are a mandatory requirement when passing through Airports and using public transport, as well as in most public settings within the resort. (Different rules will apply at Snowbombing venues – full statement to follow).

You can prove your vaccination status by using the NHS COVID app, the EU COVID Pass or any international equivalent. 

Follow the link below to download the NHS App and activate your travel certificate (England & Wales only).

For persons travelling from other UK nations, please follow the below links to receive your digital COVID travel certificate. 

Requirements when transiting through Germany


If you are flying into Germany (e.g. Munich) you need to be aware of the following requirements: 

Anyone entering Germany over the age of 12 must have one of the following: proof of a negative test, proof of vaccination or proof of recovery. 

● Proof of Negative tests must be in written or digital form, approved tests are Nucleic acid amplification techniques (PCR, LAMP, TMA) and antigen tests. Tests must be taken no later than 48 hours prior to departure.
● Proof of Vaccination for entry includes the EU digital COVID certificate and the NHS vaccination certificate.
Proof of immunity acquired through previous infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus issued in written or digital form in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish. It must include the type of test and the date of the positive test

Germany has several counties that are listed as High Risk. If an individual has visited or passed through a country on that list in the past 10 days a digital registration form must be completed before travelling no matter the individual’s COVID-19 status. The form and current list of high-risk countries for Germany can be found below.
