WU Executive Academy will support students to facilitate the entry visas needed for their study program.
Our Program Managers provide “invitation letters” upon request for the regular classes in Vienna. With this document, students can go to the appropriate government agency and apply for a visa. Please inform yourself in advance about the visa application requirements.
In order to apply for visas for international residencies, students receive “invitation letters” from our partner universities and/or “hotel confirmations.” Please find out if there are entry restrictions for your country and if you fulfil all formal prerequisites and apply for a "Tourist Visa". A visa service is provided to students who permanently live in Austria.
PLEASE NOTE: For the Global Executive MBA international residency in the USA a “Student Visa” is required; applying for this specific “Student Visa” will invalidate all currently-existing American visas of the applicant.
The type of residence permit required, depends on your country of origin and the duration of your stay in Austria. Please find the most relevant information here.
Third-country nationals who have graduated from the WU Executive Academy can, under certain circumstances, be eligible for one of the so-called Red-White-Red – Cards. Government agencies like the Austrian Business Agency will provide information and guidance on available options and the necessary steps involved.
