Moving to Vienna
Beneath the visible splendor of Vienna’s art, music, and architecture, lies an even richer life that is seldom noticed by its many visitors: The quality of day-to-day life for the majority of Vienna’s citizens.
Mercer’s Overall Quality of Life Survey has consistently placed Vienna near the top of the rankings. The analysis is based on an evaluation of 39 quality of life criteria for each city including political, social, economic, and environmental factors; personal safety and health; education; transport; and other public services.
Cost Of Living
The Austrian cost of living is slightly higher than the European and North American averages, but it is still less expensive than other European countries like Switzerland and Great Britain. Rural regions offer cheaper rent and food than urban centers, but transportation is usually more expensive.
The Documents Required
The documents required to enter Austria and remain here legally depend on your nationality, the purpose and the duration of your planned stay.
We collected the usual required documents here.
But we also recommend to consult the Austrian Embassy or Consulate in your home country prior to your departure.
