Updated on May 14, 2024

Austria, the land of snow-capped mountains, stunning architecture, and delicious cuisine, is a popular destination for tourists from all over the world. However, if you're a citizen of the Dominican Republic, you must apply for the Austria Schengen Visa to visit the country.

The Austria Schengen Visa allows you to visit the Schengen Area for up to 90 days Per Entry. In this guide, we'll provide you with all the information you need to know about the Austria Schengen visa application process, required documents, and visa fees.

We're here to help make your visa application process as smooth as possible!

Saint Charles Austria

Do Dominican Republicans need the Austrian Schengen Visa?

In short, yes! Austria requires citizens of more than 100 countries, including the Dominican Republic, to have this visa before visiting.

Children and minors from the Dominican Republic also need an Austrian Schengen Visa. The process is super easy for families, as they can apply together by simply clicking 'Add another person' during the iVisa application process.

Everything you need to know about the Austria Schengen Visa

The Austria Schengen Visa offers more than just an opportunity to explore Austria; it also grants access to 26 other countries within the Schengen Zone and the European Union.

These countries include Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

For citizens of the Dominican Republic, this short-term visa presents several purposes:

  • Enjoy a vacation in Austria and the Schengen Area/European countries.

  • Visit family and friends residing in Austria or the Schengen Zone.

  • Conduct business or scientific research.

  • Travel for medical purposes.

  • Attend short courses, training placements, and cultural events.

  • Participate in sports events.

It's important to note that the Schengen Visa does not permit individuals to work, receive payments, or live in Austria. For those purposes, a valid visa or residence permit application will be necessary.

Find more info about the work visa and other travel documents on the Austrian government website.

How long is the Austria Schengen Visa valid for Dominican Republicans?

When your application is approved, you'll usually receive a valid Multiple Entry visa that allows for a maximum stay of 90 days Per Entry within a 180-day period. This means that within the 90-day period, you can enter and exit Austria as often as you wish, making it easy to explore other countries within the Schengen Zone.

However, it's important to note that the Austrian consulate or embassy has the final say in granting you a multiple-entry, double-entry, or single-entry visa based on your individual circumstances.

Can I extend my Schengen Visa to Austria?

The Schengen Visa cannot be extended while you're in Austria. Only in extreme circumstances, can you stay longer in the country than your visa allows.

If you don't think your visa allows enough time in the country or the Schengen Zone, simply leave before your visa expires and reapply again from the Dominican Republic. The expiry date is decided based on your travel purpose, plans, and financial situation, for example.
