About the Austria residence permits

Austria offers more than 10 types of residence permits: with and without the right to work in the country, for new employees of local companies or for self-employed.

The Settlement and Residence Act (Niederlassungs- und Aufenthaltsgesetz, NAG) regulates all residence permits’ granting.

Article 44 of the Settlement and Residence Act regulates the residence permit for financially independent persons. This type of residence permit is limited by annual quotas established by a government decree.

The Austria residence permit is suitable for those who want to live in a safe, economically developed and eco-friendly country, travel without visas to the Schengen Area, ensure better education for their children and improve the quality of life for their families

Global instability is making it even more important to prepare for tomorrow

Civil wars, terrorism and political repressions can threaten the future and the lives of your family members.
Changes in political regimes, devaluation or global financial crises can rob you of everything you have achieved and earned.
Future of the loved ones
Social unrest affects your family members directly. It pushes aside cultural development, medical care and education.
