Obtaining a temporary residence permit is the first step towards immigrating to Austria. A residence permit in Austria is issued, as a rule, for a year.The residence permit must be renewed annually or every 3 years. After five years of residence in the country in the status of a residence permit, you can get permanent residence.

Permanent residence and citizenship of Austria

 Permanent residence - a permanent residence permit - in Austria differs from a residence permit in that it does not need to be renewed, it is valid indefinitely. Permanent residence can be obtained after five years of living in Austria in the status of a residence permit and confirmation of knowledge of the German language at level B2.

To obtain a permanent residence permit, a residence permit is suitable, which can be extended: for example, a residence permit for financially independent persons or a residence permit for entrepreneurs. The residence permit is renewed three times: twice for a year and once for three years.

After six or ten years of living in Austria, you can apply for citizenship.
