Administrative issues

Administrative offences abroad

Administrative fines/financial penalties imposed abroad, especially traffic fines, may under certain circumstances be enforced in Austria on the basis of the EU Act on the enforcement of financial penalties (EU- Verwaltungsstrafvollstreckungsgesetzes, Federal Law Gazette I No. 3/2008 as amended, which is based on the EU Framework Decision on the cross-border recognition and enforcement of financial penalties) and the applicable EU legislation and/or bilateral agreements. For further information, please contact the relevant automotive clubs.

Irrespective of this, it is recommended that fines be paid, also with a view to avoiding problems when travelling to another destination or in the event of re-entry to a particular country.
