Insurance

All third-country nationals, who would like to start their studies in Austria need a Residence Permit “Student”.

In order to be granted the Permit which fixes the students´ legal status in the host country, it is indispensable to have a valid health insurance in Austria.

The Austrian state has a very efficient health system and is offering a student health insurance for €59,57 per month.

 

Students from EU-countries dispose of an European Health Insurance Card, which is valid in state hospitals and is being accepted by doctors who have signed a contract with the Austrian national health insurance (Gebietskrankenkasse). Please inform yourself prior to your departure to Austria.

 

All non-EU students are required to provide a valid health insurance for Austria. It doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to be from the Austrian government (Gebietskrankenkasse).

 

If you find an insurance company that offers an insurance which covers the cost of €60,000.00 and more, it will also be accepted (check the plan before signing the contract)! In case of an illness or if you have an accident and you need to go to the hospital, you will have to pay the bills out of your pocket and then send the bills for the money refund. Sometimes the insurance companies don’t pay 100% of the money back that you have paid.

Confirmation of Registration (Anmeldebescheinigung) for EU-, EEA- or Swiss Citizens

Every person from the EU/EEA-country and Switzerland is allowed to enter Austria without a visa and can stay up to 90 days.

As you are staying in Austria longer than 90 days for educational purposes,  you have to get the Anmeldebescheinigung (confirmation of registration) at the Municipality office MA35 in Arndstraße 65-67, 1120 Vienna, Austria.

This confirmation of registration doesn´t need to be renewed as long as you stay in Austria. After the termination of your studies and only if you are leaving the country and are not intending to settle down, you should cancel your registration.

 


 

Checklist for the Anmeldebescheinigung:

  • Confirmation of studies
  • Student ID or valid passport
  • Valid health insurance for Austria
  • Proof of financial means (bank statements from your parents, from yourself)
  • €15,00 fees (other fees may occur)

 

Non-compliance with this regulation may result in the imposition of a fine of € 200.00 or more.

Residence permit for newborns

When?

Immediately following the registration of residence (of the baby) and the issuance of the birth certificate, but no later than 6 months after birth.

 

How?

The first residence permit of the baby will depend on the mother´s permit. E.g. If the mother has a residence permit student for a year, the baby will also get it for a year as a “student”.

All documents must be submitted in German. Documents issued in other languages must be translated by a court interpreter.
