Introducing the Republic of Austria which can be described as one of the oldest and the most beautiful European countries. Population census performed in 2018 shows that the population of Austria is currently estimated at around 8.8 million people, with ethnic Austrians being the single biggest ethnic group at 91% of the population.

The Official currency of Austria is the Euro (EUR). Austria is a member state of the European Union and of the Schengen area, which provides many benefits for its passport holders and residents. Austria currently offers a legal economic citizenship program, allowing a direct path to citizenship or residence permit with no residency requirements for individuals and their families.

Single requirement is the applicants' capability to make a financial contribution to the Austrian government. However, currently, it is not the only country in the EU providing such opportunity, as Cyprus and Malta are also running similar citizenship-for-investments business immigration programs. If entering the country for a short stay, a certain type of visa will be required for the third-country nationals.

Lawful Immigration
In order to visit Austria legally, a visa-requiring foreigner needs to be in possession of a valid Schengen visa issued by either Austria or another Schengen member state. Austria's legal regulations on the immigration of non-EU citizens entering Austria set out the requirements for any individual. The legal regulation defines 'visa-free' countries, citizens of which do not require a visa for short term visits, as well as the issuance of such a visa by the state of Austria.

If you need to apply for a visa, the following Austrian public government institutions are responsible for immigration and issuing visas to the third country nationals:

the Provincial Governor (Landeshauptmann/Landeshauptfrau)
the authorised Regional Administrative Authority (Bezirkshauptmannschaft)
the Local Administrative Authority (Magistrat, in Vienna: MA 35)
