Your opinion counts! Have your say!

Austria can look back on over 60 years of migration history in the Second Republic. From the original assumption that immigrants are merely “guests” who only stay for a few years and

then return to their countries of origin is no longer an issue today.

  • Austria is a country of immigration and Vienna is the best example of this.
  • Around 44% of Viennese are of foreign origin, i.e. they either have a foreign nationality or a foreign country of birth.
  • Around half of all Viennese have a migrant background, i.e. (in the statistics) both of their parents were born abroad.
