Residence Permit and Citizenship - Tailor-made Solutions


Austrian Residence Permit - Your access to Europe

The Republic of Austria is located in the heart of Europe and is one of the most beautiful, wealthy and safe countries in the world. Several times Austria was awarded with the price for the country with the worldwide highest standard of living (World Competitiveness Yearbook, Mercer's 2011 Quality of Living ranking).

As a resident of Austria you can benefit from very comfortable and stable living conditions every day. Either live in one of the most famous and popular cities in the world such as Vienna, Salzburg or Innsbruck or relax in Austria's awesome countryside - the Waldviertel or the Alps.

Austria is an excellent place to establish residence within the European Union.


How to stay - Residence Permits and Citizenship

In Austria, there exist a number of different residence permit categories. Thus, only a spezialized law firm is able to guide you through the jungle of regulations.

In general, residence permit applications can be applied in connection with an investment (real estate, company formation or share purchase agreement), a job (key personnel) or - if you have sufficient property - for private purposes.

For persons of independent means, Austria offers the opportunity to become resident of the European Union with minimal requirements (sufficient funds, accommodation in Austria, health insurance). An Austrian residence permit allows you to travel through Europe (including all Schengen states) without worrying about a visa. A residence permit is initially given for a year. After the first year the permit can be renewed on an annual basis.

An Austrian residence permit is also the basis for a citizenship application in Austria. A citizenship can be granted after some years of legal residence in Austria. After ten years, at the latest, you can apply for Austrian citizenship. We support you in this process as a matter of course.
