Recognized refugees can start immediately to reunite their family. The application must be submitted by one of the members of family in the first 3 months after the positive notification. Only for applications within 3 months neither a salary, nor accommodation or medical insurance must be verified.
If the application cannot be submitted personally within the first 3 months, it can also be sent in writing to the Embassy. For more details please contact the Red Cross.
Beneficiaries of subsidiary protection must wait 3 years from the first notification of subsidiary protection, before their family can apply.
While a person is still in the asylum procedure and has not received protection status yet, it is not possible to bring the family to Austria.
