A new visa category for trainees was introduced on 1 September 2018 when Austria implemented EU Directive 2016/801. Third-country nationals, studying in a third country (or who obtained a university degree in a third country no more than two years ago) may apply for this kind of visa in order to complete a study-related internship in Austria for up to six months.
