Absentee Ballot :

Once the elections have been officially announced, each Austrian citizen (as long as he/she is registered) can apply for an absentee ballot.

BMI Postal Voting Procedure Austria

The application for an absentee ballot is to be forwarded (via mail, fax, e-mail, or online) to the Austrian town/village which has entered you into its “voter register.”

Please note that your application for an absentee ballot must include your name, your date of birth, the number of your valid Austrian passport, and the exact address your ballot should be sent to.

Immediately after having received your absentee ballot, you may actually vote. Please note that both envelopes you have received – the small one and the larger one – must be properly closed and sealed.

It’s not necessary that someone must certify your identity anymore. The absentee ballot must directly be returned to the provincial elections commissions in Austria. Your vote will not be counted if the ballot does not arrive before the closing of the election office.

About Us :
Diplomatic relations between states can be traced back to antiquity. But is was not until the 15th century that Italian city states created permanent representations as one of the essential fundamentals of modern diplomacy.

At the Viennese Congress (1815) and by virtue of the Aachen Protocol (1818) a uniform classification of diplomats was established, which was confirmed by the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (1961).

In 1963 consular affairs too were regulated uniformly by the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. The year 1720 is considered to be the origin of an independent Austrian diplomatic service, which was when Emperor Karl VI. assigned the administration of foreign relations to a separate minister.
