Before applying for your visa to Austria, applicants should decide the visa subclass under which they wish to lodge their visa application.

Please make sure you familiarize yourself with the information on the visa subclass you are applying for.
The different categories that are catered to are –

Short Stay Visa (up to 90 days)

Long Stay Visa (up to 6 months)

Once you know the visa type you need to apply for, please read all relevant information to that category which includes its Visa Fees, VFS Global Service Charges, Documents Required, Photo Specifications and Processing Time along with the Visa Application Form within that category.

Applicants should read all instructions carefully and then fill in the Visa Application Form. Applicants can also get the visa application form by visiting the nearest Austrian Visa Application Centre or by downloading the forms from Applications and Forms.

Once all requirements corresponding to the visa subclass under which they wish to lodge their application are fulfilled, you are ready to apply for your visa applications.

Please note - VFS Global employees can only provide you with information and application forms for Austrian visas, but they are not able to provide you with advice regarding which visa you should apply for.
