Permanent Immigration

Foreign artists wanting to permanently immigrate to Austria must comply with the general provisions of the Settlement and Residence Act and the Act Governing the Employment of Foreign Nationals, regardless of how long they have previously stayed in Austria (no special provisions for artists!), either with a Red-White-Red Card or an EU Blue Card of as a family member of a lawfully settled foreign national or of an Austrian national.
