Term of validity

Fixed-term residence titles, including the residence permit – artist, are generally issued for 12 months.

If a residence title is applied for for a shorter period, it will be issued only for the period applied. If the passport expires within less than one year, the residence title is issued only for the remaining validity of the passport.

It is not possible to apply for a residence title of more than one year in the form of a residence permit. Residence permits may, however, be extended (see Can a residence permit-artist be extended?)

The validity of the residence title commences on the date of issue.
