Health Care in Austria

Milk is pasteurized and dairy products are safe for consumption. Local meat, poultry, seafood, fruit and vegetables are generally safe to eat.

Health risks: Ticks often live in heavily forested areas during the summer months in some of the more easterly parts of Austria and can create discomfort and, in very rare cases, serious infection to people who are bitten. Immunization against tick-borne encephalitis is endemic and travelers likely to find themselves in wooded areas from spring to autumn should take a course of injections.

Rabies is present in Austria, although there have been no incidents reported in recent years. For those at high risk, vaccination before arrival should be considered. If you are bitten seek medical advice without delay. For more information, consult the Health appendix.

Health care: The following emergency numbers are used: Police: 133; Ambulance: 144; Fire: 122. For UK nationals on a temporary visit to Austria , an E111 is not required - production of a British passport is sufficient to obtain medical treatment. For other EEA nationals (including Austrians) resident in the UK , an E111 is required. Visitors who are treated privately may receive a refund for part of the costs, up to the amount that would have been payable for public hospital treatment. Such refunds are available from Regional Health Insurance Offices, which also provide addresses of medical and dental practitioners. Referral to a public hospital will require an admission voucher issued by a doctor. In an emergency, UK nationals should show their passport to the hospital administration, which will ascertain from the insurance office whether the costs of treatment will be met.
