What do I need to know before retiring in Austria?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Austria, they said...

"Expats looking to retire in Austria should research the country’s residency requirements and the permits needed to stay in the country for a longer period of time. Expats should consider the cost of living in Austria and investigate the tax system to determine how their retirement savings could be affected. It is also important for expats to brush up on their German language skills, as most of the population speaks German fluently. Obtaining health insurance coverage is also essential for living in Austria. Understanding the local culture and traditions can help expats adjust to life in Austria more easily," said a member in Austria.

"Try to accept the local way of life and learn the language. This is perhaps the country in the whole world where speaking the local language and imitating local customs makes the difference between being truly "in" and just getting by," remarked another expat who made the move to Vienna, Austria.
