Is it good in this distant country with a completely different standard of living? The Russians have the opportunity to find out, but for this it is necessary to withstand a number of requirements of highly developed Austria to emigrants.
How can one get to these practical and possessing solid intellect and prosperity to people, how to move to Austria forever? First you need to get a visa to this country.
How to get a residence permit.
Moving to Austria from Austria may be difficult, but still obtain a residence permit, and then obtain Austrian citizenship is quite realistic. A cherished plastic card – a residence permit – gives the holder rights almost equal to the native Austrians.
There are several categories of persons to whom this paper is available, and, accordingly, different types of the Austrian residence permit itself. Most of these types have quotas, with their help, and regulate the number of foreigners who have the right to obtain a residence permit in Austria. Let’s try to understand this confusion.
Requirements for all candidates.
Do not pose a threat to public order and security. This is necessarily confirmed by a certificate of absence of previous convictions. Basic level of knowledge of the German language. Sufficient level of income for each person (900 euros – for single people, for a married couple – 1300 euros plus 140 extra for each child). Availability of a medical insurance policy. Those who are officially working in Austria, the insurance company makes insurance. The rest must take care of this on their own. Apartment or house in the property or a long-term lease.
Without fulfilling these points, no one can get the coveted document. Let’s see now, what kinds of species are divided into this document and, most importantly: how to obtain a residence permit in Austria?
The residence permit of Austria for financially independent persons.
To become a happy owner of such a document, a very large monthly income is required for Russians – all the standard figures mentioned above are doubled. Also, people claiming financial independence, should have on the bank account for 20 thousand euros for each adult and 10 thousand per child.
In addition to money, applicants for such a residence permit need to speak German above the basic language (the certificate of the Goethe Institute). This rule does not apply only to children under 14 years of age.
In addition to the fulfillment of two very complicated requirements, it is necessary to take into account that there are not many quotas for the financially independent residences in Austria.
So, such a residence permit is available, as it turns out, only to the elected. But emigration to Austria is possible and easier ways.
The permit in Austria for workers.
It is much more common among our compatriots, and the requirements for it are not so high. In addition, quotas are not provided for it, so Russians have a better chance of getting it. This residence permit is designed specifically for citizens living outside the EU. In general, the average Russian citizenship permit for working people is very suitable.
There are three varieties of such residence permit.
“Red-white-red card for highly qualified personnel”

It is also required to present a diploma of higher education and a certificate of a scientific degree. Together with the other documents, the diploma and certificate are submitted to the Consulate, from where they enter the employment service to confirm the qualification, then a six-month visa is issued to get a job. When the contract with the employer is already signed, it is possible to begin registration of residence permit.

How to obtain citizenship.
Having found out the question of the varieties of the residence permit, we will see how to stay in the country forever, how to obtain the citizenship of Austria.
With regard to people living in the country temporarily and who are citizens of another country, while striving to obtain Austrian citizenship, the following rules apply:
In Austria, dual citizenship is impossible, one should think, to those who want to have dual citizenship. There are only a few rare exceptions: refugees, persons who will be deprived of their previous citizenship without basic income, and those who have not been answered to their home country if this is documented. People who live in the country for at least 10 years and who have not violated the law can apply for Austrian citizenship. Become Austrian citizens can close relatives of Austrian citizens in a few years of temporary residence. Living in Austria for 30 years is given citizenship automatically. In a separate order, Austrian citizenship is available to the stars of show business, famous athletes and politicians, as well as to people who have invested heavily in the Austrian economy (minimum 10 million euros). Especially valuable investors can even leave dual citizenship.
Migration flows to Austria are constantly coming from different countries, including from Russia. To get an opportunity to live in this wonderful country is very difficult for foreigners, but still many have a chance. If there are difficulties, but you want to leave the country, think about those EU countries where you can easily and easily obtain a residence permit.
