ÖIF exam dates + registration

Registration information

We offer exam dates for all exams offered by the ÖIF. The deadline for registering for an exam is one week before the exam date (12:00 a.m. on day of deadline). If the deadline for an exam date is not met, registration is no longer possible, without exception. In this case you should consult the webpage of the Austria Integration Fund to find exam dates offered by other exam centres.

Candidates are admitted to the exam on condition that they:
1) have paid they exam fee in full; 2) have presented a copy of their passport or other valid official identity card with photo*; 3) have presented a copy of their registration slip.


The following documents etc. are to be taken to the exam:
valid official identity card with photo*
- original certificate of registration
- eCard (social insurance card), if available
- pen (no pencil!)

Candidates without a valid official identity card with photo*, without an original certificate of registration, and without a social insurance card (if available) cannot sit the exam.

*Residence permit, personal ID card, driver's licence, decision for beneficiaries of subsidiary protection under §51 of the Asylum Law (white card) and procedure card under §50 of the Asylum Law (green card).


If candidates do not pass one part of the language exam (oral/written) or a part of the integration exam (oral/written/value contents), they receive a certificate with the mark “failed”. Candidates may take the exam as often as they wish. It is not possible, however, to repeat only parts of the exam.

Exams last (depending upon the level) from one to three hours. During the test the room may only be left in certain exceptional cases!

Exam results will be available 15 days (+ postal dispatch) after the exam date. Only the ÖIF is informed of the exam results. As soon as the results are available, exam certificates are sent by mail to the address which was given on the registration form.
