Austria is a small country with a population of just over 9 million people (2024) and is located in the heart of Europe. It is a very beautiful country with a comfortable climate, magnificent scenery, ancient culture, strong economy and high standard of living. Lack of access to the sea does not make Austria less attractive to travelers, especially fans of ski resorts, opera and classical music.

In addition to numerous tourists, Austrian cities are regularly visited by migrant workers. And not only from the European Union, but also many other countries. Work in Austria for foreigners in 2024 is available mainly to qualified technicians – engineers, programmers, construction workers, registered nurses and social workers to care for the elderly and sick people.
