Additional information

Original foreign language documents (except for English-language documents) must be accompanied by certified English translations which were carried out by court-certified translators. Translators must attach the original documents to the translation so they cannot be separated. If the translation is not carried out in Austria, the translator must be authorised by the responsible Austrian Embassy.

Please note: You have to distinguish between legalization and translation of documents. We only accept documents in languages other than German or English if a certified interpreter (translator) has translated them into English language.

Applicants must demonstrate proficiency in English by submitting standardized English/instruction language test scores, or a certificate confirming completion of studies (at least four-semesters) in English language at a recognized post-secondary educational institution.
