Registration Process (Vienna)


My fiance and I and moving to Vienna in May, where he begins work on the 1st June. I will hopefully be starting a Masters degree in October.

A lot of our confusion revolves around the registrations required. From what we understand we have to register as residents (Anmeldebescheinigung) and also register our address (Meldepflicht) at a local council office. We have booked one months accommodation when we arrive, with the first priority being to find a permanent apartment in that time. We are unsure how exactly to go about all of this. Can we register as residents without a permanent address? We imagine also that without a permanent address we cannot confirm our health insurance either.

It would be great if any of you out there who have navigated this process could give some advice.

Thank you :)
