I work as a digital product designer for a fully remote agency based in Chicago, USA. I would like to move to Austria and establish residency. I have researched the options and it is unclear how I would apply to stay past a tourist visa's duration.

My team lead lives in the Czech Republic. I would actually be reducing the time shift we currently work around.

Hi Brett,

It seems your best options are a Red-White-Red Card, an EU Blue Card or a Red-White-Red Card Plus. Take a look at our visas page for Austria and the official Austrian webpage for immigration, if you haven't already.

Best of luck.
