About the program

Austria offers more than ten options for becoming a legal resident and obtaining a residence permit. Each option provides various possibilities: with or without a work permit, with or without an option to be employed or self-employed.

Persons of independent means aspiring to obtain residence permits in Austria are subject to the annual quota. This means that every year the Austrian Government announces a ‘quota’, a limited number of such residence permits to be issued.

General requirements towards applicants are as follows: holding sufficient assets to be able to reside in Austria, renting or buying a property in Austria, holding a health insurance and not posing a threat to public order and security.

We always exceed our clients’ expectations

Personalized solution

There is a multitude of solutions but they all have a drawback of being one-sided. No one will provide you with a solution that will take all the risks into account. We try to consider all requirements of our clients to minimize the unexpected occurrences.

Maximum inclusion into the quotas

We know how the quota principle works and use this knowledge to ensure that our clients’ applications will fall under the quota.
