Summary: Passports: A passport valid for three months beyond the length of stay and issued within the past 10 years is required by all nationals listed in the chart above except (1) EU nationals holding a passport or national ID card which is valid for the duration of stay. If travelling from one border-free Schengen country to another however, EU nationals are not required to show a passport or national ID card. It is still recommended that you travel with your passport or ID card to prove your identity if necessary though. Note that Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Ireland, Romania and the UK are not part of the Schengen area, so a passport or ID card is required if travelling to/from these countries. However, Romania and Bulgaria are currently in the process of joining the Schengen Area. EU nationals are not required to possess a return ticket or show sufficient funds.

Visas: Visas for Austria are not required by all nationals referred to in the chart above. EU nationals may stay for an unlimited period, but must register with the local authorities if staying longer than three months. Nationals of Australia, Canada and the USA may stay for up to 90 days without a visa. 

Working Days Required: Allow two to three weeks for visa processing.

EU citizens staying longer than three months should register either with the state governor or the administrative district authority authorised by the state governor. See for details. Non-EU citizens must apply for a residence permit at an Austrian embassy/consulate before travelling if planning on staying in Austria for more than 90 days.

Entry With Pets: If bringing a pet from another EU country, the animal must have a microchip or tattoo, an EU pet passport and a valid rabies vaccination certificate. Animals from outside the EU must also have a microchip or tattoo and rabies vaccination certificate along with a veterinary certificate issued by an authorised veterinarian.
