immigration

  • Most migration to Austria is done on a flexible system which is known as the Red-White-Red Card and is designed to grant residence based on the skills of potential incoming workers and the shortages in the Austrian labor market.
  • To qualify as a very highly qualified worker, you must score more than 70 points on the points based scheme described on the immigration authorities’ website. 
  • Under this system you score different amounts of points for things like your professional qualifications, work experience, language ability and the salary levels you have previously earned.
  • To be issued the Red-White-Red Card under this type, you must have a job already lined up, although there's a second option known as a Red-White-Red Card Plus. 
    • This allows you to get entry to Austria to work without having a specified employer sponsoring you. 
    • This card is only issued under certain circumstances and has strict criteria which are set out online. 
    • If you have held a Red-White-Red Card already for 10 of the preceding 12 months, you can ‘upgrade’ your card to the ‘Plus’ version and get unlimited labor market access. 
    • This means you can work for any employer rather than only the one originally named on your card.
  • Another option for workers in in-demand occupations is to apply for the Red-White-Red Card under the shortage occupations stream. 
    • In this case, you still have to complete the points based test, but you need score only 55 points for your application to be considered.
  • In the case of Austria, if you’ve already got an EU Blue Card, or fulfil the criteria, you could be issued a Red-White-Red Plus Card which has more favorable terms than a regular work visa. 
    • This means you might be eligible to come to Austria for the purposes of looking for work and without having defined employer sponsorship.
  • Austria offers a specific visa for seasonal workers coming to work in tourism, agriculture and forestry. 
  • The quotas set for seasonal worker visas are reviewed regularly, and a visa will only be issued if the authorities are satisfied the work can’t be done by a local person.
  • EU Blue Card:-
    • Third-country nationals who have completed studies lasting more than three years at institutions of tertiary education and who earn a yearly salary for a job corresponding to their education that exceeds 62,265 Euro (2019) have access to the EU Blue Card Austria.
    • Employee will earn a gross annual income of at least one and a half times the average gross annual income of full-time employees (in 2020: at least € 63,672; annual salary plus special payments),
    • The labor market test (Arbeitsmarktprüfung) shows that there is no equally qualified worker registered as a jobseeker with the Public Employment Service (AMS) available for the job.
