Business Immigration Office

Since June 2023 there has been a competence centre for companies and their key foreign employees in the New City Hall with the aim of handling the procedure for the Red-White-Red Card in a particularly service-oriented and speedy manner. All expats who have already registered their main residence in Linz or are planning to do so will find the right contact persons in the Residence Law Department in the newly established Business Immigration Office (BIOL).
