Work permit


Whether or not you are allowed to work in Austria depends on your nationality, the kind of work you would like to undertake and – for nationals of third countries – also on the kind of residence title. Here you can find an overview.


The Austria's Agency for Education and Internationalisation (OeAD) has compiled a database in order to help you find the right information. Please note, however, that the search results are general information that may not replace the possible need for detailed legal advice in individual cases. Despite all care in the design of the database the OeAD does not assume any liability for the accuracy, completeness and topicality of the search results. When linking to other websites we do not assume any liability/guarantee for their contents.
