AIS-Salzburg Newsletter

Dear AIS-Salzburg Community,

Recently, we formulated and communicated up-to-date and clear guidelines (see below) sourced from the Austrian health and governmental authorities concerning travel into Austria from anywhere in the world as well as visa and SARS-Covid-2 testing requirements.  Obviously, this information represents a snapshot of the present situation based upon the health data to date.  As the weeks progress, we will be updating this information and communicating it through our website ( as well as in our weekly newsletters.  We are hopeful that the situation in Austria remains under control and have high confidence that the government and health officials here will remain appropriately prudent. 

Stay in touch and let us know what questions you have: we'll be doing our best through the summer to keep you accurately informed.

If, on the other hand, one is willing to look into and gain an objective understanding of the security and quality of an educational experience offered by an international boarding school with many years of experience, some interesting and thought-provoking facts provide food for thought. Here are a few of the more important considerations that one should take into account:
