The official and most widely spoken language in Austria is German. The unofficial languages spoken here are Alemannic and Austro-Bavarian. From its stunning capital, Vienna, to the beautiful picturesque ski resorts of the Alps, Austria is a wonderful place to visit.

Frequently Asked Questions about Austria Visa

What do I do if I do not satisfy the requirements for applying online?

If you do not satisfy the requirements for applying ETA online, please apply through a travel agent, airline, or an Austria visa office. If you are not available for an ETA VISA, you can still apply for another electronic visiting visa.

What can I do if I make a mistake in my application?

It is important that you are very careful when you enter your personal details. You will have an opportunity to review all the details you have provided and can change the details at any time until you confirm all details as correct.

If you have made an error, it is important that you correct it before proceeding. Once you have confirmed the details, your credit card will be debited for the non-refundable service charge.

If you find out later that you have made a mistake, you will need to make a new application (and incur another service charge). We cannot change the details on an ETA once it has been issued.

Note: If your ETA details do not match your passport details you might experience delays when boarding your aircraft or be refused entry into Australia.

Do I need a plane ticket before purchasing an ETA?

No. You do not need to arrange your transportation into the country before applying for an ETA. Whether you are traveling by boat or plane, it’s okay to apply for your ETA anytime before or after your confirmed ticket.

Who needs to apply for an Austria Schengen Visa?

You need to apply for an Austrian Schengen Visa if you intend to visit the country for tourism and recreation, business purposes, visiting friends or family, cultural and sporting events, airport and seafaring transit visits, official visits, medical treatment, short-term study, and research purposes. Depending on your reasons for visiting the Schengen Area and the frequency of your visits, the Schengen consulate can issue you a single, double, or a multiple-entry visa valid for 90 days.

However, if you are a frequent traveler, you may apply to obtain a multiple-entry Schengen Visa valid for up to five years. On each visit, you will only be able to stay within the Schengen Area for up to 90 days in a 180-day period.

Austrian Visa requirements for a work, business or student visa?

If you’re applying for a work visa to Austria, you will need to provide the embassy/consulate with documents that prove you meet the Austrian Schengen Visa requirements based on your employment status. If employed, you need an employment contract, a current bank statement, and a no objection letter from your employer giving you leave to travel, and an income tax return. If self-employed, you will need a copy of your business license, company bank statements, and income tax returns. You will also need an invitation letter regardless of whether you are applying for a longer work visa or a short-stay visa for business or study. Student visas require proof of enrolment at an Austrian institution, a no objection letter from your place of study in your homeland, and an invitation letter.

Can I Go to Other Schengen Countries With an Austria Business Visa?

A person who possesses a valid Schengen visa may enter any country in the Schengen Area they wish. But, please make sure to state within your application which countries you’re planning on visiting. You still have to apply at an Austrian representative authority no matter where you plan on going since Austria is your main destination.

What If I Need to Stay Longer?

You can apply for a visa extension if you need to stay longer. But, you should be aware that you probably won’t get a visa extension without a very good justification.

A Schengen Business Visa can be extended if:

 

  • The visitor is facing a force majeure. A force majeure could be anything that prevents you from going back to your country; it could be either a natural disaster or a political situation in your state.
  • The visitor has strong personal reasons. These reasons could be related to any type of unexpected personal situation that requires you to stay longer than 90 days.
  • The visitor entered Austria late. If you entered the country after your visa was valid you may ask for an extension for the same amount of time you missed.
  • The visitor has humanitarian reasons. You have to stay in order to help someone for various reasons.
  • Besides asking for an extension if you want to stay longer than 3 months you can apply for a long-term D visa. This national visa lets you stay for six months and in special cases up to a year. Moreover, with a D visa, you can also apply for a residence permit that lets you stay up to 5 years in Austria.

The best time to visit Austria is during the spring and fall (April-May and September-October) when the temperatures are warm and the volume of tourists is lower. This is a perfect time to get out and explore all of the natural beauty Austria has to offer. Temperatures are suitable for hiking, and although the lakes may be on the cooler side, they make for a refreshing dip after a long hike. Thanks to the lack of crowds during this time, the cultural and historical sites will also be less busy.

The amount you need to show you have will vary from country to country.

Those planning to work or study will need additional documents. Proof of sufficient financial means is not specifically stipulated by the Austrian government and is regulated on a case-by-case basis. You can do this by showing bank statements, hotel bookings, and that your income or investments are enough to support yourself during your stay.

      • If you’re from the EU, EEA, or Switzerland, you can work as much as you like and will not need a designated work permit.
      • However, if your home country is outside of the EU or EEA, your employer must apply for a work permit on your behalf. Your hours will be capped at 20 per week to ensure you’re paying sufficient attention to your academic studies.
      • If you complete unpaid internships and placements as part of your program, you won’t need a work permit and the hours won’t contribute to your weekly limit.
