Immigration and registration: 

Citizens of the European UnionNon EU-Citzens
All citzens of the EU have to take their Passport or Identity Card with them to Austria. Shortly after arrival you need to register at City Hall with the registration form you will receive at the Student Residence. You will be supported by our tutors during that process! They will also help filling out the form. Just before departure you have to go to City Hall again to deregister! Don't forget to do so, because it would be against the law and could lead to problems at future immigrations!

Insurance for you stay in Austria:

Citizens of the European Union Non EU-Citzens

All citzens of the EU have to take their Eletronic Health Card to Austria. Then they can use the services of the Public Health Service which is generally very good in Austria. Be aware that the general EU-insurance does not cover any costs of transfer to your home country in a serious case! If you want to have that covered, you need to make an additional travel insurance! Tipp: check your credit card - it might include a travel insurance, which covers costs like that and check the regulations from bank to bank!

Non EU-Citizens are themselves responsible for their insurance coverage! Please check with your insurance at home, if their is any agreement between your country and Austria!
This is the case for instance for students coming from Turkey - click here to download the necessary insurance transfer form! 

Probably you will need an additional travel insurance! Credit Card insurances will probably not include the general cover which is necessary, nevertheless some cards like gold cards do! The regulations for credit cards can differ from bank to bank even for the same card! For aproxinately 50,-- you can get a student insurance with the Austrian Social Security System "Oberösterreichische Gebietskrankenkasse" (you might get a cheaper travel insurance at home!) Please keep in mind that you are self responsible for your insurance and the costs would be very high, if you need treatment by a doctor and you do not have proper insurance! 

 

 

Important: 

the accident- and liability insurance which is included in the compulsory student union membership in Austria gives you insurance cover for all activities that have to do with the university programme! This insurance is valid nearly world wide, except in the USA, Australia and Canada! But be aware that this is not a health insurance!
