Liaison Officers

The "Liaison Officers" are the first contact persons for academic staff (prae and postdocs) from third countries to take a foothold in Vienna. This applies i.a. for initial information about visa and residence permit (also with regard to family members).

A list of the current liaison officers of the respective faculties as well as additional information on immigration law can be found on the website of the Human Resources department.
