For nationals of other EU/EEA countries and Switzerland, entering Austria and establishing residence is often a very straightforward matter with rather little administrative effort thanks to the principle of free movement.

By contrast, the regulations for the entry, settlement and labour market access of persons from third countries are much more demanding. However, you as a company or university do not have to "struggle" with these complex regulations alone!

We will be happy to support you together with our network, please feel to contact us! Our service is free of charge for you and your employees.
