A visa for entry into Austria may be required. Participants concerned are strongly advised to seek information on requirements applicable in their case from Austrian diplomatic or consular missions in their home countries. Participants who require a visa must contact the competent diplomatic or consular authorities of Austria and apply for a Schengen short-stay (C) visa at least three weeks prior to their intended date of arrival in Austria. In countries where Austria does not have diplomatic or consular representation, visa applications can be submitted to the consular authority of a State party to the Schengen Agreement acting on behalf of Austria in the country concerned. A list of the Austrian diplomatic and consular missions can be obtained in the attached PDF file.
