Red-White-Red Card (Rot-Weiss-Rot Karte) (Vienna)

Hi All,

I'm a Canadian with a job offer for Salzburg, so I'm really excited! I'm just about to apply for my RWR card and was wondering if anybody has gone through the process and can maybe help me out. My biggest question is the residency requirement because I don't have a place yet and probably wouldn't get one until I show up. Any suggestions? What are they looking for?

I was also wondering about the health care requirement. Can anybody suggest an insurance company that provides plan details/certificate in German? Would I need to be covered for the whole year or just until I start work?

Lastly, did anybody from Canada/USA/Australia have to get certificates to prove their English knowledge to a B1 or B2 level (requirement for the points system)?

I'm open to any suggestions or information you may have about the process. If/when I arrive, we could totally go for drinks!

Thanks,
-Kris
