Being a non-EU citizen from a Schengen visa-free country, and with a UK residence permit valid for another year, what type of visa could I apply to be able to stay in Austria for more than 90 days in a 180 days period?

The purpose of the stay will be just visiting my friends in Austria, but I travel for business purposes in the EU area a lot, and this counts towards the 90/180 leaving very few days to spend in Austria.

Is there any way to either be allowed to go through the 90/180 just in Austria or stop the 90/180 count while in Austria?

  • Austrian law is rather complicated. A friend of mine just made a small mistake and had serious troubles. He ended up with a specialised immigration layer who cleared the problem with authorities. He told me that it is pretty easy for EU citizens but the rules for non-EU citizens are rather complicated. – ZachC Dec 22 '19 at 15:40
