We gladly advise and assist in proceedings before the immigration authorities. Contact us early in order to avoid costly and risky mistakes like an overstay of the validity of your visa/visa-free stay.
Key words: residence permit student, application for a residence permit in Austria, duration of legal stay in Austria, proof of sufficient financial funds.
Students from outside the European Union planning to study in Austria have to apply timely for a “residence permit – student”.
An application may be submitted in Austria during their legal stay. However, submitting an application does not entitle the applicant to stay in Austria beyond the validity of his/her visa. The regular immigration regulations (e.g. maximum stay of 90 days in a period of 180 days) still apply.
The competent immigration authority (in Vienna: “Magistratsabteilung 35”) checks if the applicant has been legally staying in Austria at the time of application and afterwards. Even a short overstay may result in a rejection.
Frequently, the proof of sufficient financial funds for the stay and studies in Austria is burdensome.
You may contact as anytime for an initial consultation and further assistance with your application and proceedings before the immigration authority (in Vienna: Magistratsabteilung 35). We have years of routine and experience in immigration affairs, including student visas and residence permits for students.
