Questions on Residence Permit

Hello,

My wife has got an admission for PhD at the University of Vienna. We will be applying for her Residence Permit (Aufenthaltsbewilligung - Studierender) and my dependent permit (Aufenthaltsbewilligung – Familiengemeinschaft) soon.

I have 2 questions:-

1. For showing "Proof of sufficient financial means", is it fine to show the funds in an Indian bank account? I don't see any other option here but wanted to know what other people have done.
2. For showing "Proof of accommodation", I can get a private rental agreement signed by friends. But obviously it won't be 'original' copy as they will sign the document, scan and send it to us. They will also send their tenancy agreement. Is that ok? Here too I don't see any other option but wanted confirmation.

Looking forward to your replies.

Regards,
Vineet

Re your two questions:

1. you may need to have some kind of a certified bank statement - due to potential for manipulation - issued by your bank there, rather than just an electronic banking balance. You will probably need to show how you can afford to both stay for the duration of your wife's studies.
2. the proof of accommodation will need to show it is in your name.

Thanks a lot morgenhund.

The certified bank statement makes a lot of sense. Thanks!

Regarding the accommodation agreement, I found this link on the OEAD website:-

Will this work if we get the signed & scanned copy from our friends with the rent, duration etc. filled along with their tenancy agreement?

Vineet

Can I check that you are intending to live at your friends' place. If they are renting it, check whether they are allowed to sublet (untermieten).

We are intending to stay at our friend's place temporarily till we get our own.

They own the place so I assume they are allowed to rent a bedroom?

What is the proof that we will require from them that they own the place?

You will probably need a copy of the Grundbuchauszug (land register) in that case to show that they own the place. One can be got pretty easily:

explains how (I had to do this in relation to my citizenship application).

How about entry and exit stamps in passports for flying in and out?

Obviously it will be hard to prove every single day and there probably isn't one specific paper you could provide.
A friend in a similar situation provided proof of being insured the entire period (you should be able to get a letter from the GKK Zentrale in the 10th) and results given during doctor visits (x-rays, blood tests, perscriptions, etc. Even if you don't keep copies, your doctor does.You can black out the sensitive information on the copies you give me MA35, they will just be interested in the name, place and date)
Also certificates from language courses, etc.
