FAQ | Visa

The relevant types of visa are “C Visa”: Schengen Travel Visa, for stays less than 90 days and “D Visa”: Residence Visa for stay between 91 days and 180 days

A Visa Type C or D is a Schengen Visa, and with that you can travel to Schengen states. These are the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden as well as the non-EU members Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.

Here is the Official Answer: The processing time for an Austrian Schengen visa may vary from 2 weeks to 3 months. It can be as fast as 15 days, in a normal situation, or can be extended up to 30 to 60 days due to the number of applications the embassy/consulate of Austria is receiving, or the uniqueness of your case. That is why you are highly recommended to apply for your Austrian short-stay visa as soon as you can, but no earlier than three months prior to your trip to Austria.

Our experience show that the citizens of specific countries might get a visa after 6 to 9 month processing time. It is however good to know that generally the Austrian Visa processing is much faster than some of the other European countries, including Germany.

What you can do it to prepare the document accurately, and provide the information that you do not intent to stay longer in Europe than expected. You should also provide the reasons why you are motivated to return back to you country of origin because of your job, family, or properties you might have.

Once the documents submitted, you cannot do much to accelerate the process. The Austrian Visa officials are mostly highly professional and reliable people. If they need more time to process your visa, there might be a good reason for that.

The Cademix however may be able to contact the officials through our own channel and get the status of your visa, if your application took extremely long or your presence is highly required for a specific event.

Austrian visas for adult travelers are 60 EUR. Other Types of residence Permit visa maybe up to 130 EUR. Depending on your age, nationality and some other factors you could be exempt from paying the Austria visa fee, or sometimes you will have to pay a lower fee. The Austrian Embassy in your country can get you an update info on this.

Yes, you can. You can visit more Schengen states, but Austria is your main destination, which means:
You will be spending more days in Austria, than in the other countries
Or you will be spending an equal amount of days in each country, but you will enter the Schengen Zone through Austria

Yes. If you get a Visa Refusal, you are entitled to 100% Tuition Fee refund.  Alternatively, if your Visa processing Time is more than 90 days after your first interview date, you can theoretically withdraw your Visa Application from the Austrian Embassy and request a Cademix Tuition Fee refund. Generally, we do not recommend that you withdraw the application, rather we can help you to find out the status of your Visa application. Please note that Cademix is not responsible for refund of your Visa Application fees that you pay at the Austrian Embassy.
