|Valid travel document||
Generally speaking, a valid travel document (passport or ID card) is required upon entry, during your stay and upon departure. Nationals of Schengen countries travelling to another Schengen country (such as Austria) are also required to carry a valid travel document.
Don't forget to bring your insurance documents, e.g. your e-card or equivalent.
Any certificates, degree certificates, certificates of employment and character references for use when seeking employment in Austria or for other purposes must be the originals. The documents may also need to be translated.
Examination certificates and school attendance certificates for any children, translated into English/German, will help to place them quickly in the correct school year
