Nationals of EU member states, the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland do not require a visa for entering the Republic of Austria. All other nationals require a visa in order to enter the Schengen Area or the Austrian territory.
For stays of up to 90 days per 180 days these individuals require a Schengen visa, given that they do not take up employment. Both information regarding special rules applicable for Family members of EU/EEA nationals and the Visainformationsystem (VIS) can be found on the homepage of the European Commission.
Nationals of countries which signed bilateral or multilateral agreements on the abolition of visa requirement are visa-free if they stay in Austria for a maximum period of 90 days and do not take up employment. © 2018 Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs
