Brexit! How to stay in Austria legally as a British Citizen

13.12.2020  |  European Visas

British citizens and their family members from third countries must apply for a residence title "Article 50 EUV" from 1 January 2021. With this permit, they may continue to live, work and study in Austria. As of 1 January 2021, the application is generally possible for 12 months after the end of the transitional phase, i.e. until the end of December 2021.  The residence title "Article 50 EUV" is valid for 5 years. If you have already acquired a permanent right of residence, it is valid for 10 years. If you already have a certificate of permanent residence or a permanent residence card, you can exchange it for a residence title "Art 50 EUV". The application must be submitted in person to the authorities. 

Appointments will be made online from the beginning of December 2020!

Required documents:

  • Valid identity card or passport
  • Passport photo not older than 6 months (it is recommended to have new passport photos taken and to include the invoice)
