All Students

Students should make sure their passports are signed and stamped when entering and exiting Border Controls. These stamps will prove the duration of your visit and more importantly prove to the Visa official that you have not overstayed your 90-day visit.

It is important to understand the Schengen 90/180 rule.  You are allocated 90 visa free days to use within the Schengen Zone, however you must remember these are rolling days and are added onto a cumulative total of days in the Schengen region. Leaving and entering does not reset your calculator – only leaving for a period of 90 days in a non-Schengen country will reset your Visa free 90 day allowance.

You can read about the Schengen rules here.

British Students may need to  renew your British passport in time if you’re travelling from 1 January 2021. On the day you travel, you’ll need your passport to both:

  • have at least 3 months left from the date you intend to leave the EU. Nevertheless, it is strongly recommended, that your passport is valid for at least 6 more months when entering Austria. This would in many cases save you from having to proof the date of your intended leave of the EU,
  • be less than 10 years old (even if it has six months or more left).
