Visas and migration


Welcome to the website of the Migration Branch of the Australian Embassy in Vienna. We are an overseas office of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP). We service clients who are usually resident in Austria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Kosovo, Slovakia and Slovenia.

You should not book flights or make travel commitments until you have a visa to travel to Australia. The department will not be liable for any financial loss incurred by clients whose visa application was finalised later than expected or was unsuccessful.

What's New?

The Australian Government has announced it will enhance the way visa and citizenship services are delivered using the latest digital technologies. For more information visit the Department Immigration and Border Protection’s website.


Announcement of Work and Holiday Agreement between Australia and Austria

On 19 October 2017, Australia signed a Work and Holiday arrangement with Austria, which, once implemented, will allow young adults from Austria the opportunity to apply for a visa under the Work and Holiday (subclass 462) visa programme.

 Work has started on the implementation of the arrangement and the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s website will be updated to advise eligible nationals from Austria that they are able to apply for a visa.
