The Living in Austria guide on gov.uk was updated on 1 January 2022 to include information about “late applications” and “family reunions”.
The deadline for applying for an Article 50 residence card was 31 December 2021. You can still apply if you have reasonable grounds for missing it. These include severe illness, or, for children, if their parent or guardian did not apply earlier for them. Contact your local Magistrat or Bezirkshauptmannschaft to apply as soon as possible.
Your close family members continue to be able to join you and settle in Austria at any point in the future. Find more information on who this applies to in the Living in Europe guidance. They must travel to Austria and then submit an Article 50 residence card application as your family member.
Nationals of certain non-EU countries may need a visa before travel. The Austrian authorities should issue family reunion visas free of charge.
Applications currently in process will continue to be processed. Until the procedure is concluded your Bestätigung über die Antragstellung remains valid.
