How to apply
Applications for the visas in the Visa Types list below may be made at the Australian Embassy Vienna.
Note: Other temporary residence visas can only be applied for in Australia. See: Temporary Visas Processed in Australia
General information about how to apply for visas in Vienna is available at: Applying for visas. To make an application for any of the visas listed below, please provide the documents in the Document Checklist below. Applications may be made by mail/courier or in person with a lodgement appointment. See: Contact us. Please note that if you choose to apply in person we may not be able to make a decision on your application the same day.
Please note that some Temporary Residence visas require lodged or approved sponsorship/nomination from an employer or other organisation in Australia which must be obtained before a visa can be lodged. Please read the application form and website information carefully to determine whether this applies to your application.
