General Information, necessary Documents, Application Process

If you intend to stay in Austria longer than six months or wish to settle there as a permanent resident, you must apply for a residence permit at the Austrian Embassy in Jakarta prior to your entry into Austria. (Citizens of Singapore can apply directly at the Austrian provincial government or submit their application at the Austrian Embassy in Singapore to be forwarded.)

The following residence permits may be issued by the competent Austrian authority (provincial governor):

  • Stay permit
  • Residence permit
  • Permanent stay
  • Family member

The various application forms are available for download in the Link-List.

Please Note: date and time of the personal submission of the application of quantity limited residence permit applications (“quota” / “quotenpflichtige Niederlassungsbewilligungen”) will be crucial. Information on whether your application falls into the category of "quantity limited residence permits" may be obtained from the Consular Section of the Embassy.

In any case first-time applicants must apply at the Austrian Embassy. Exempt from this requirement are applicants who can enter Austria without a visa (e.g. citizens of Singapore). They may apply directly in Austria.

Please include the following documents in your application:

  • Copy of your passport
  • Birth Certificate
  • If applicable: Marriage Certificate, Certificate of Adoption, etc.
  • 1 passport photo
  • Proof of accommodation (lease agreement, contract for student housing, etc.)
  • Proof of sufficient funds or liability declaration issued by an Austrian resident (exempt from this are dependants of residents of Austria)
  • Proof of health and accident insurance (exempt are students and co-insured family members)
  • If married to an Austrian citizen: Marriage Certificate, Proof of citizenship, Residence registration form
  • Proof of travel purpose (e.g. Work Permit from the Public Employment Service of Austria (AMS), etc.)
  • Police Clearance Certificate

All documents must be duly legalised and translated into German: Documents issued the Authorities of Indonesia must be legalised by the Indonesian Ministry of Justice, the Indonesian Foreign Ministry and the Austrian Embassy in Jakarta. Translations into German must be undertaken by a certified translator, either in Austria or Indonesia. In the latter case, the signature of the translator must be legalised by the Indonesian Ministry of Justice, the Indonesian Foreign Ministry and the Austrian Embassy in Jakarta. 

Documents issued by the Authorities of Singapore must be legalised by the Foreign Ministry of Singapore and the Austrian Embassy in Singapore. Translations into German must be undertaken by a certified translator.

Documents issued by the Authorities of Timor-Leste must be legalised by the Foreign Ministry of Timor-Leste and the Austrian Embassy in Jakarta. Translations into German must be undertaken by a certified translator.

The uniform fee is EUR 100,00, of which EUR 80,00 (EUR 50,00 for minors) must be paid immediately upon submission of the application and the rest upon collection of your residence permit in Austria.

The Austrian Embassy will contact you if your residence permit application is successful. You will then have to apply for a Visa "D". The Austrian Embassy will issue this Visa "D" (with four months validity) that permits you to travel to Austria in order to collect your residence permit.
