Where should the residence title be collected?
If the application is granted, the residence title must be collected personally within 6 months of having been informed from the competent domestic authority (see What is the procedure?).
Competence within Austria depends on the applicant’s place of residence or intended place of residence. In general the district authority (“Bezirkshauptmannschaft”) or, in chartered towns, the municipality is responsible (in Vienna, municipal department MA 35).
The website oesterreich.gv.at allows searching for the competent authority by postal code.
