Vizam.az 04 June 2020 90 views 6 min. read

Austria, which stands out among European countries with its ancient history and culture, and is known throughout the world for its archaic and colorful capital city of Vienna, attracts the attention of millions of tourists and hosts them every year. If you want to find a place for yourself among those millions of tourists, you can get detailed information about the biggest tool that will open the way to your dream - the Austrian Schengen visa from this article.

Austrian Visa Types

You can travel to Austria, which is included in the list of Schengen countries, using an Austrian Schengen visa. The reasons for applying for this type of visa can be tourism, visiting family or friends, business trip, medical examination or treatment, short-term study, exchange programs and many other non-permanent nuances. Those who wish to receive long-term studies (such as bachelor's, master's, doctoral studies, etc.) in Austria with a duration of more than 90 days or to work permanently in an institution located in Austria can also apply for an Austrian national visa if they have official invitations or acceptance letters from those educational and work institutions.

Austrian Schengen Visa

Similar to other Schengen countries, the Austrian Schengen visa is available in single-entry and multiple-entry types. In any case, you can also apply for long-term visas, i.e. for three months, six months, one year, two years or five years. After obtaining an Austrian Schengen visa, it is possible to enter any Schengen country. However, in any case, we recommend that you make your first entry into the Schengen area from the country where you received your visa, i.e. Austria. Otherwise, if you try to enter the Schengen area with an Austrian visa from another country, if you do not mention it during your visa application, even if it is rare, it may become a problem for you, the border service of that country may turn you back and not allow you to enter the country. This experience has been experienced in some cases and therefore we advise you to avoid this risk.

If you are applying for an Austrian Schengen visa, you must indicate the maximum number of days you will stay in Austria during your trip. Many tourists include Hungary, the Czech Republic, Germany and several other European countries in their tour plans when planning their Austria trip. Such cases are nuances that will not cause any problems in your visa application. It will be enough for you to apply for a visa to the Austrian Embassy, simply by indicating Austria as the country where you will stay most of the time during your general trip.

Collection of Documents for Austrian Schengen Visa Application

When applying for an Austrian Schengen visa, you must submit the following documents:

Original and copy of the first page of your foreign passport
Copies of your previous visas and entry-exit stamps, if applicable
A copy of your identity card
Reference from the place of work* and, if applicable, an extract from the salary card (for persons studying, a reference from the educational institution) Employment reference from e-government portal
Statement from the bank account in your name* Detailed information about the amount is mentioned below)
At least last 3 months bank statement in your name
Copies of extracts* of properties in your name and a copy of your car's passport, if applicable
Proof of your marital status* (copy of your marriage certificate if you are married, birth certificates if you have children under 18 or divorce certificate if your marriage has broken down)
2 pieces of 3.5x4.5 size, biometric and your photo on a white background
Airline reservations you make for your trip
Hotel reservations you made for your trip
Schengen-compliant travel insurance that will fully cover your trip
Application form filled in English
A printed version of the document issued from the system on confirmation of appointment
If the visa is applied for a business visit rather than a tourist one, in this case, an official invitation letter related to that work, event or meeting

Documents marked with "*" must be submitted to the embassy in English. If you have obtained the original document in Azerbaijani rather than in English, in this case, each of these documents must be translated into English and certified by a notary and submitted to the embassy.

After your documents have been accepted, in any case, during your visa procedure, you may receive a call from the embassy and you may be asked to submit new documents. In some cases, it has been seen that during the visa procedure, the Austrian embassy requires the applicants to purchase the hotels they have booked and submit the documents confirming this to the embassy.

The amount in your bank account is based on the travel dates you have indicated, i.e. the length of your stay in Schengen, the price of the flight tickets and hotels you have booked, etc. varies depending. In general, it is recommended that you have at least AZN 3,000-5,000 in your bank account for a one-week trip (equivalent to Euros or US dollars). This amount should fully cover your travel plan. When calculating the amount, you can sum up the average daily cost of 70-80 euros for each day you indicate that you will stay in the Schengen area with the price of your ticket and hotel reservations, and expect a little higher than the figure you received.

If you are an entrepreneur, you can submit the documents that will replace the certificate from the workplace (a copy of the TIN, a certificate issued by the Ministry of Taxes about your turnover, an extract from the register of your company) to the embassy. If you are not working, studying or in any case sponsoring another person to cover the costs of your trip, in this case a copy of that person's identity card, proof of employment (if self-employed, the documents listed above), proof of bank account and statement (this bank account can be both in your name and in the name of the sponsor), if you have a family bond, a document confirming this (for example, if it is a parent, your own birth certificate, if it is a brother or sister, both of your birth certificates, etc.) and a paper about sponsorship to the embassy must be presented. If the applicant is under 18 years of age, in this case, if he is traveling alone, a copy of the permission document to leave the country from both parents or, if he is traveling with one of the parents, must also be submitted during the visa application.

It should be noted that even if you submit documents such as TIN, turnover certificate from the Ministry of Taxes, extract from the register of your company or sponsorship paper, permission paper, you must have each of these documents translated and certified into English by a notary.

Visa Procedure

To get an Austrian Schengen visa, apply to the Embassy of Austria in Azerbaijan. The decision on the visa is made by the consul in the consular department of the embassy.

In order to submit the documents, an appointment must be made at the embassy well in advance. The visa application can be made no earlier than 6 months before the date of the trip, and no later than 15 days before. Applicants must be personally present when submitting documents. This also applies to children of all ages and travel groups.

The Schengen visa procedure may take 10-15 working days from the date of application.

Note that our experience shows that in the case of urgent business trips, it is possible to schedule an appointment earlier than the time specified in the system via email. In addition, in such urgent cases, the visa response can be issued sooner than 10-15 working days (even 3 working days). However, the decision on this matter is entirely up to the consul.

The visa fee is 35 euros and must be paid in cash in national currency, that is, in manats. The manat equivalent of the visa fee is adjusted by the embassy according to the exchange rate of the day.

Austrian Schengen Visa Probability

Just as when applying for a visa at the embassy of any country, your chance of getting a visa in Austria depends on the state of your profile. Your workplace and position should be normal, your monthly income should be in the standard salary range (in experience, visas have been issued to people with monthly income in the range of 400-600 AZN, there have been many cases), you should show enough money in your bank account to cover your entire trip, the nuances that tie you to the country (having property in your name) , the presence of your family and children) and your travel history are factors that increase your chances of getting an Austrian Schengen visa. In our experience, there are quite a few people who previously received their first Schengen visa from the Austrian embassy. However, in any case, the fact that you already have Schengen visas is a factor that increases your chances of getting a visa from the Austrian embassy.
