About the program
Austria offers more than 10 types of different residence permits: with and without a work permit, as well as with permission to work as an employee or to be self-employed.
The issuance of all types of residence permits is governed by the Austrian Temporary and Long-Term Residence Act (Niederlassungs- und Aufenthaltsgesetz (NAG)).
The residence permit for financially independent persons is regulated by article 44 of this law. This type of residence permit is limited by annual quotas, which are established by a government decree.
Immigrant Invest cooperates exclusively with experienced Austrian lawyers throughout the country. We know the peculiarities of local bureaucratic procedures and support our clients on any issues related to them or their families moving to Austria and living there.
Our clients receive comprehensive professional support both before applying for a residence permit and after moving to Austria.

How to get an Austrian residence permit?
Website or call
You can leave a request on our website or call us. We give you all the information on Austrian residence permits for financially independent persons and the documents required for preparing an application.
We arrange to meet you in one of our offices or start working remotely.
Preliminary Due Diligence
We conduct a preliminary Due Diligence check, which allows us to give an informed opinion about the best way to obtain an Austrian residence permit for our client and gives us the time to take measures, when required, to reduce the possibility of the application being rejected.
If, during our preliminary Due Diligence check, questions arise that may affect the application being accepted, we recommend suitable alternative programs.
Immigrant Invest is the only company in the industry with its own compliance division. Our staff has a Compliance Anti Money Laundering Officer certified by an international association.
Decision and signing an agreement
During our meeting with our potential future client, we develop a step-by-step procedure for them to apply for a residence permit, which takes into account their circumstances, goals and objectives.
After reaching a mutual understanding on our future client’s goals and the services we can offer, we conclude a contract and start working on the application.
Registration and submission of documents
The terms of collecting, registering and submitting documents vary in each case.
An Austrian lawyer prepares the necessary package of documents for you to submit to the Austrian consulate. We accompany you to the consulate to help resolve any questions that may arise and also to guide and support you.
Obtaining a D visa
The applicant’s documents are processed within 3 months (in practice, they are usually issued within 4 weeks). Once the visa application has been approved, we accompany you to the consulate to obtain the visa.
Having received a D visa, you have to leave Austria and then use the new visa to reenter Austria and apply for an Austrian residence permit.
Obtaining an Austrian residence permit
Before your arrival, we prepare all the documents required for submitting the application. We meet you, arrange for a place for you to stay and help you submit the required documents.
They are reviewed within 3 months (in practice, this often takes just 4-6 weeks). Once your application has been accepted, we accompany you to the government office where your biometric data is taken and your residence permit card is issued.
