Many fully vaccinated travellers may be denied entry into certain countries. Austria and Croatia are the first two countries in Europe to give vaccination status an expiry date.
No other EU country has yet set a similar deadline for travellers.
Croatia was the first to establish a maximum validity period for Covid-19 vaccine certificates.
Austria also announced last week that its vaccine certificate is only valid for nine months following full vaccination. Vaccines that require only one dose are effective from the 22nd day following that dose and for 270 days from the vaccination date. This also applies to people who have previously had Covid and have only received one dose of any vaccine.”
Previously, the only rules for vaccination status concerned the acceptable vaccine brands and the definition of “fully vaccinated” as a 14-day window between the final dose and the traveller’s arrival date.
So far, no other European countries have set a vaccine deadline, but those planning to travel to Europe next year should be aware of the situation and keep an eye on it.
The Biden administration intends to begin distributing vaccine booster doses to Americans of all ages who received their last vaccine dose at least eight months ago next month.
