The Austrian immigration authorities recently implemented changes to the eligibility criteria for Red-White-Red Cards, including reducing salary thresholds and relaxing language proficiency requirements. In addition, applications for dependent family members may now be filed in Austria at the same time as the primary application. Red-White-Red Cards authorize eligible third-country nationals (i.e., nationals of countries outside the European Union and European Economic Area) and their qualifying dependents to work and reside in Austria for an initial period of up to two years.
