Austria Schengen Visa

Austria Schengen Visa

The Austria Schengen Visa (C) is probably the most common visa given to foreigners interested in travelling to Austria. As stated at the Embassy of Austria website, if you intend to go to Austria as a tourist, to visit friends or on a business trip for a period not exceeding 90 days and your country does not participate in the Visa Waiver Program, you need a Schengen travel visa (Visa C).
