Salud

  • La atención médica es de alto nivel en Austria.
  • Travelers are advised to take out good travel insurance.
  • Please note that cash may be required to provide medical care.
  • In case of hospitalization or when specialist medical care is required, travelers should contact their insurance company directly.

European health insurance card (EHIC)

  • The European health insurance card or EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) entitles you to essential medical care in the event of illness or an accident during a temporary stay in Austria.
  • If you show your EHIC, healthcare providers know that you are insured and where they can declare the healthcare costs. It is often not necessary to advance healthcare costs yourself.

Medicines

  • Take plenty of special medicines with you (in the original packaging) or ask the doctor for a prescription.
  • It is advisable to bring your own travel pharmacy with regular medicines.

Medical statement

  • Travelers who bring medicines prescribed by a doctor or specialist may be required to carry a medical certificate. Request the statement in time.

Health advice

Ticks

  • Watch out for ticks when hiking or camping in the countryside, as they can transmit Lyme disease.
  • Tick-borne encephalitis (FrühSommerMeningoEnzephalitis, FSME) also occurs in Austria. Encephalitis is an inflammation of the brain caused by a virus that can be transmitted by ticks. From April to November, ticks are most active and the risk of contracting this disease is greatest.

Drinking water

The tap water is safe to drink.

Food

  • Since encephalitis can also be transmitted through raw milk from cows, sheep or goats, it is advised not to use products made from raw milk (such as some cheeses).

Vaccinations

For personal advice and up-to-date information on vaccinations and health issues, please contact your doctor or a vaccination center.
