The shortage of labor and skilled workers is one of the biggest challenges faced by many companies.

Not only the search for qualified, foreign employees*, but also the associated bureaucratic hurdles, bring many companies to the limits of their possibilities.

We are happy to be your first point of contact for all matters relating to the immigration and relocation of skilled workers.


Do these questions sound familiar to you?

  •     Which formalities have to be fulfilled so that the future employee can work in Austria?
  •     How and where does the employee get a work permit and residence permit?
  •     Where should he live and what administrative procedures are involved?
  •     What has to be done if his family comes with him (visa, residence permit, school)?
  •     What else has to be taken care of (bank account, change of driving license, etc.)?

As ÖVKG we take the needs of our customers seriously!

With our IMMIGRATION/RELOCATION SERVICE we take over the administrative activities for you and offer you solutions with different basic packages - on request with optional additional services - and this of course tailored to your individual needs.

Our packages cover the most diverse requirements, both for the most common case that your future employee is still abroad, or is already in Austria. Depending on the initial situation, we will gladly organize the necessary visa for the Schengen area and/or a residence permit/work permit, for the employee as well as his/her family members.

In addition, we also take care of all other wishes upon request - from opening a bank account and transferring a driver's license, to applying for family allowance and translating, apostilizing and legalizing documents, to finding a suitable apartment, a place in kindergarten, accompanying you when you go to the authorities, and much more.

Our user-friendly online portal allows you to book orders at any time, view the processing status around the clock, as well as give third parties - e.g. the new employee and your HR department - access for viewing and/or processing.

In terms of costs, we naturally offer you full transparency through a clear total cost overview of the services you have chosen.
