Frequently Asked Questions
A collection of frequently asked questions our clients have asked us when booking our trip to IRONMAN Austria.
You should check https://www.austria.org/do-you-need-a-visa when buying your ticket as rules do change but recent rules stated that tourist visas for most countries (including nationals from the United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, the UK, all European Union nations and most Central and South American nations) are NOT REQUIRED for entry into Austria and you are allowed to stay for up to 90 days
We suggest you arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday at the very latest if coming from outside of Europe and on Wednesday or Thursday at the very latest if you are traveling from another European country. If you can arrive as early as Monday the week before the race we will have staff there to assist you. There are many things to do before and after the race around Klagenfurt as well as other areas of Austria and Europe.
