Moving to Austria in 2019 : the complete guide

 

Every nation has its own history and a unique and inimitable culture. Even apparently similar countries actually have substantial differences. Today we have decided to stay in Europe, choosing an elegant, rich, but not for the few! The harsh climate is mitigated by the heat of the population and still this country is emerging from many points of view, especially in the real estate market. We are talking about Austria, a small land for extension but vast for the opportunities it offers. Whether you are a young man looking for a memorable adventure, a businessman eager to make a quantum leap, or even a family man who wants to buy a property in Austria, the solution is right in front of your eyes. On the basis of the questions that are often asked before taking such an important step, we decided to draw up a mini guide, oriented to clear any possible doubt that might limit you in your choice. For this reason, you just have to get comfortable and read carefully the next lines!

                   

Let's start as always, with the documents you will need to enter this country. Assuming that Austria has belonged to the European Union since 1995, if you are a European citizen, you will not have any bureaucratic restrictions, because it is enough to use an identity document, which guarantees immediate recognition of your person. A compulsory document is the so-called Meldezettel , which attests to your domicile. You will necessarily have to obtain it within three days of your arrival if your intention is to move. 

Another fundamental element for being a full-fledged Austrian citizen is the certificate of residence, together with the social security number. If you move to Austria and have not yet found a job, you will have to register with the employment office.

Moving on to the beauties of this country, we can not forget the beautiful Vienna, with the castle of Schönbrunn, the baroque city of Salzburg that gave birth to Mozart and Innsbruck, famous for its ski slopes. 

The cost of living is quite high, but given that the services are particularly effective and efficient, we can say that everything is quite proportionate. Austria is, however, cheaper than many other countries in Northern Europe. 

Among the advantages of living in Austria, we find without a doubt the excellent, highly advanced health system. Health insurance also covers the medicines needed to treat all forms of illness. We must also mention the low level of crime, which is perhaps also due to the low level of population. 

As far as the choice of an Austrian city to move to is concerned, there is no more or less convenient location. All the cities are unique and special, and apart from Vienna, which is the capital city, the rest of the Austrian municipalities have fairly uniform prices. 

The average price for buying a property is 150,000 euros, starting from 50,000 as a standard price for smaller homes. Lease agreements are also fairly standardised as prices across the country. It starts from 400 euros per month until you reach much higher thresholds. 

We hope that our guide has been simple and intuitive. We just have to wish you a good trip, to discover 'Austria!
