Only short-term visa applications are accepted at the VFS application centre
Before applying, please ensure you are very clear on your ‘purpose of visit’ – do remember we are here to assist and help you through the entire visa application process but are not permitted to advise or guide you on choosing a visa category. Since our work is primarily administrative in nature, we have no say on whether you will be granted a visa and how much time it will take to process, as this is entirely the prerogative of the Consulate / Embassy of Austria to decide on.
Please go to the link “All about visas” to understand details of Short Stay visas and Long Stay visas.
Please ensure you read the security regulation notices before you visit the visa application centres / Consulate/ Embassy.
