Confirmation of registration for EEA and Swiss nationals
Citizens of EU/EEA states and Switzerland do not need an entry visa or a residence permit to be able to study in Austria. If EU/EEA citizens plan to live in Austria for more than three months they require a confirmation of registration (Anmeldebescheinigung).
The confirmation of registration (Anmeldebescheinigung) is a document confirming the residence title of EEA and Swiss nationals who moved to Austria after 1 January 2006. EEA and Swiss nationals who have just registered at their first address in Austria (residence registration form/Meldezettel) and intend to stay in the country for more than three (3) months have to apply in person for a confirmation of registration at Municipal Department 35 within four (4) months after their arrival in Austria.
Please note that it constitutes an administrative offence punishable with a fine if you do not apply for a confirmation of registration on time. The confirmation of permanent residence (Bescheinigung des Daueraufenthalts) is a document confirming the right to permanent residence in Austria for EEA and Swiss nationals after five (5) years of legal and continuous residence in Austria. It is issued upon application.
