Immigration law and policy


The Austrian Aliens’ Act (Fremdengesetz, FrG) of 1997 regulates short stays, long-term residence and employment immigration in combination with the Foreigners’ Employment Act (Ausländerbeschäftigungsgesetz, AuslBG) of 1975. Both acts were recently revised in a Comprehensive way, on July 9, 2002. They provide for a strict immigration control system by requiring the future immigrant in principle to apply for an immigration visa from abroad and subjecting would-be immigrants to a tight quota system.
