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.
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.
Work out which Austrian Schengen Visa type you need based on the purpose of your travel. Collect the required documents for a visa to Austria.

Receiving a visa rejection letter is disappointing, but it doesn’t mean you have to instantly abandon your study abroad plans. If you made some mistakes in your first application, like failing to attach the required documents, you can make these corrections and apply again.
However, if you believe your initial application was error-free, you can appeal to the Austrian embassy within four weeks. Here’s a breakdown of everything your appeal letter should contain:
You have to apply at an embassy, consulate, or an official representative authority of the Austrian government in your country. The embassies are in charge of issuing any type of Schengen visas. Check here to find your local office.
Yes, you can. The Schengen states have abolished their borders and their residents can move freely within those states. 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.
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:
Visa is an authorization issued by the representative of the Government of a country permitting a person, not resident in that country, to enter its boundaries.
Citizens from Canada and the USA do not require a Visa to visit Austria for stays less than 90 days in a 180 day period. For stays longer than 90 days, a Schengen visa is required.
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.
From its stunning capital, Vienna, to the beautiful picturesque ski resorts of the Alps, Austria is a wonderful place to visit. To travel to Austria for a short trip lasting fewer than 90 days, you will need an Austrian Schengen Visa, as it is part of the Schengen Area of European countries that have abolished border controls between each other. If you plan to stay longer, for work or study reasons, you will require an Austrian work or study visa.
You will need to fill in a Schengen Visa application form and supply the following documents – two recently taken passport-style photos, a passport, or other travel documents that are less than 10 years old and valid for at least three months after your departure date from the Schengen Area.
You will also need travel and medical insurance covering you up to costs of approx. €28,000, a cover letter stating your itinerary and the purpose of your visit, as well as a flight itinerary and proof of accommodation during your stay, proof of your civil status, like a marriage certificate, and proof you have means of subsistence during your stay. 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.
You will need to apply to the Austrian embassy or consulate in your country of residence or a visa application center acting on their behalf.
Even though the business visa application process may seem a little daunting, it’s actually really easy as long as you’ve prepared all of your required documents:
It’s always best to apply for a business visa at least three weeks before your planned visit. Don’t apply three months prior as you will more likely not receive a positive answer.
A business visa is valid for 90 days within a six-month period. That means you can enter the Schengen Area within those six months and stay for a maximum of 90 days. When your 90 days period is over you must go back to your country.
Schengen visas are uniform and with a Schengen Visa, you can stay for the same amount of time either for business purposes or as a tourist within any country in the Schengen Zone. However, you won’t be able to use a tourist visa for business.
Applicants are free to apply up to 90 days prior to their date of travel. The Embassy recommends that you apply at least 3 weeks prior to your date of travel to accommodate any unforeseen processing delays.

"Better than the Embassy, but..... Very frustrating when I wanted to get information on my order, and since I am within 2 weeks of leaving I needed to know where I stood. No phone numbers that worked- at the 303 number, all I got was an answering device. Finally, someone started to chat. Told me I still had to send in photos of the passports- which I had included in the original application. Supposedly I had been sent an e-mail telling me this-- that I had never received. Finally got it sorted but had to confirm that the second set of photos of the passports had been received. A toll free number would help get things like this sorted a whole lot quicker. I rated this acceptable because I ultimately got the Visas in time."06-04-2022 06:11:51 am

"VISA Good Rxperience For my first trip to USA I decided to try visa on line and found it easy and efficient to use. While the uploading of photos and passport information took a bit of time, this was more to do with my limited IT awareness. However the guidance from estavisa was excellent including a short film and now I can scan and upload documents much more quickly All in all a very helpful system and my visa arrived within 48 hours - just look forward to a much more speedy arrival through customs at Nsirobi thanks to esta visa Ian Elliott"06-04-2022 05:45:48 am
