Do I Need a Visa to Visit Austria?

Canadian citizens using Canadian passports do not require a visa to enter Austria for tourism or business stays under ninety (90) days.

Most other nationals will need a visa.

Non-Canadians must apply IN PERSON at the Embassy or Consulate for the European Customs Agreement zone visa. Visa seekers are advised that they must seek visas directly and in person from the embassy or consulate as they will be interviewed and fingerprinted and biometrically scanned

Non-Canadians must make an appointment directly with the appropriate embassy or consulate and attend the IN PERSON interview and fingerprinting. You must contact the embassy for the appointment. The embassy will tell you which documents to bring to your appointment.

Austria is a signatory of the European Customs Agreement on border control and visa standardization.

Due to Austrian government regulations, no third party can assist you with your visa needs. Travellers to Austria are advised that they must seek visas directly from the Austrian Embassy in Ottawa.
