For employees

Are you planning to move your center of life to Tyrol for a longer period of time or even permanently and make Tyrol your new home? 

Would you like to take this step with your family and are wondering how your partner can also gain a professional foothold in Tyrol? Do you have children and would you like to clarify which childcare options or schools are available? Are you looking for a suitable home and do not know which residential areas are suitable and what costs you can expect? Or are you thinking about how to make contacts and spend your free time?

Whatever questions you have, ask them to us, we will be very happy to assist you! Either we can give you the relevant information or support directly ourselves or we will check which service center or service provider can help you most effectively. Our service is free of charge.

Feel free to contact us, for example on the following topics:

  • Residence issues
  • Arrival and relocation
  • Finding accommodation
  • Dual Career Service for partners
  • Childcare
  • Living in Tyrol (language acquisition, getting around, leisure activities, etc.)
  • Events of the Welcome Service Tirol (the perfect opportunity to meet new people)
  • Individual questions that arise in everyday life or concern your obligations (e.g. obligation to register)

You are very welcome to call our staff or write to them at any time!  No question is wrong, too small or too unimportant! We are here to help you!
