Austrian citizenship can be acquired in two ways. Either by birth or by conferral.
The acquisition of Austrian citizenship by conferral is in most cases the last stage in an integration process lasting many years. The requirements to be fulfilled are very high. For example, in addition to a sufficiently long uninterrupted and lawful stay in Austria, a sufficiently high income and a good knowledge of German must be proven. The processing of applications by the competent authorities usually takes a very long time and in many cases bureaucratic hurdles have to be overcome.
We are your reliable partner in this process. We will take care of the handling of the application for you, from the thorough preparation of the application, to making an appointment with the authorities, to accompanying you to the application meeting and handling the necessary correspondence with the authorities.
Citizenship due to extraordinary achievements in the special interest of the Republic of Austria
People who have achieved above-average performance in the fields of sport, business, science, culture or art can be granted Austrian citizenship by decision of the Austrian Federal Government if this is in the special interest of the Republic of Austria.
We advise and accompany such exceptionally successful people in the preparation and substantiation of their application for Austrian citizenship. This includes a thorough analysis of the previous and still expected successes in the personal field of specialisation, a detailed planning and preparation of the application process and the required application documents as well as the handling of all contacts with the competent authorities.
Victims of National Socialism
In addition, we regularly assist our clients in acquiring Austrian citizenship by notification as descendants of persecutees and victims of National Socialism in Austria. Here we work with historical sources and prepare detailed application justifications on the basis of the existing source material.
