Will I need an ETIAS or a Schengen Visa?
Austria is part of both the EU and the Schengen Zone. This means either visa is okay for travelling to Austria. However, you should consider the rest of your journey or any likely future journeys when applying. A Schengen visa will only allow you to visit one country on your journey (Austria). ETIAS will allow you to visit an unlimited amount of EU countries within a 3 year period. You should also remember to check if you are eligible for both visas prior to starting an application.
Why should I visit Austria
Famous for being a country of arts, Austria was and still is home to some of the world's most renowned musicians and performers. Whether you want to dip in to Austria’s musical past by visiting the Mozart museum, or experience one of the many musicals, theatrical performances or art displays, Austria has what you need.
In addition to the cultural and arts filled background, Austria also home to architecturally beautiful cities such as Vienna and Salzburg. Contrastingly, nature is also prevalent, with Austria sitting in the middle of the alps. This makes it a nation that is equally great for a city break or for a skiing/hiking trip.
