The Visa Code regulates the procedures for the issuance of visas, which need to be verified by the representation in the course of the visa process. The competent representation decides on each application individually, with due regard to the circumstances of the particular case.
There is no legal entitlement to the issuance of a Schengen visa. The following prerequisites for issuing a visa need to be verified by the representation:
- Credibility and traceability of the travel purpose to Austria
- Funding of living and travel expenses of one’s own income or assets
- Willingness of the holder of the visa to leave the Schengen Area prior to the expiration of the validity of the visa
- Submission of a travel medical insurance with a limit of liability of at least 30.000 Euro and which is valid for the entire Schengen Area and throughout the stay
