New Salzburg residents

Migrants can receive financial support in the form of the blue ÖIF federal voucher. The settlement authorities – i.e. magistrate or district authority – issue the voucher to so-called family members under certain circumstances. This means spouses or minors of Austrians, Swiss, EEA citizens and third-country nationals. There are certain financial limits and deadlines for support by means of a voucher: Those participants who have successfully completed a certified German course at A2 level by means of an ÖIF exam within 18 months of the voucher being issued receive funding for a maximum of 300 teaching units or 50 percent of the course costs, but no more than 750 euros (or max. EUR 2.50 per completed teaching unit).
