Nationals of EU countries, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand do not require visas. Some foreign visitors may require an official invitation and a financial guarantee from an Austrian host, thus obtaining a visa may be rather time consuming. For changing planes at the airport, nationals of the following countries require visas: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Ghana, Iraq, Iran, Liberia, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Somalia, Sri Lanka and Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Za´re). Nationals of most industrialised countries may enter Austria for up to 90 days without a visa.
