23 March 2020

All accommodation facilities were officially closed on Monday, 16 March 2020. For the moment the closure is valid until 13.04.2020.

The Schwaz District Authority announced that accommodation facilities may be used to accommodate workers and leasing workers employed by Austrian companies who carry out their activities in Austria. These persons may also be fed, i.e. food and beverages may be served to them.

However, the accommodation may NOT be used for tourist purposes - no "recreation seekers" may be accommodated.
The workers MUST have a main or secondary residence in Austria, otherwise they must leave the country immediately.

BH Schwaz would like to point out that there is no separate "special permit" from the Bezirkshauptmannschaft Schwaz for these accommodation facilities.

If you have any further questions, please call the hotline of the province of Tyrol: 0800 80 80 30
BH Schwaz has also set up a hotline: 05242 6931 5880
