Weekly Tip 15 #LocationAustria: Take advantage of the Red-White-Red Card for key employees

© ABA - Invest in Austria

On the basis of the Red-White-Red Card Austria has established a new, flexible immigration system for third-country nationals. This is particularly designed for highly qualified skilled personnel in understaffed professions, other key qualified salaried employees, self-employed key personnel and foreign graduates of universities in Austria.

The underlying objective is to enable the controlled and long-term immigration of qualified employees who are third country nationals and their family members in accordance with specific personal and labor-market related criteria. The most important criteria are qualifications, professional experience, age, language skills, minimum salary and an adequate job availability.

Two varieties of the Red-White-Red Card are issued. The Red-White-Red Card entitles third-country nationals to fixed-term settlement and employment with a specified employer. The Red-White-Red Card Plus entitles third-country nationals to fixed-term settlement and unlimited labor market access (self-employment and gainful employment) which is not limited to a specific employer.

“The Red-White-Red Card scheme makes Austria even more attractive for talents from all over the world“, says ABA International Director Wilfried Gunka. Oriented to labor market needs, the card offers clear-cut advantages to companies in that highly qualified employees become quickly available.
