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 Home Affairs. 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.
