Any fordeigner who underlies the passport obligation when entering or staying in Austria is generally required to have a visa.
This Visa entitles you to a 3 month stay in Austria and all Schengen countries, therefore it is also called “Schengen visa” or “tourist visa”.
The stay can be three months maximum in a period of six months. The sum of multiple stays must not exceed these three months in a six month period, whereas your initial entry is relevant. The visa must generally be requested in your home country, where biometrical identification features such as photos and fingerprints will be taken.
The visa is only granted, if the following requirements are fulfilled:
Contrary to the uniform visa, the visa D is limited to Austria, therefore it is also called “national visa”. It permits the stay within Schengen for three months and within Austria for 6 months and is therefore the visa with the longest validity.
A visa D is granted for the following purposes:
A visa must be requested at the Austrian embassy or consulate in your home or country of current residence. The visa can only be requested at an Austrian embassy or consulate, if the predominant destination is Austria.
The request can be submitted at the earliest three months before the departure. The request must be granted or rejected within fifteen to sixty days.
The fee must be paid in advance and will not be refunded in case of rejection. The cost for a universal visa is € 60 and for a visa D € 150.
