I am on transit at the Vienna airport. Do I need a transit visa?
If you are staying in the international transit area you most likely do not need a transit visa. Please check the table from the link below. The nationalities that need a transit visa are marked in the far right column "Flughafen" (unless they have a visa issued by a number of destination countries, see additional comments at the bottom of the table). http://www.bmi.gv.at/cms/BMI_Fremdenpolizei/visumspflichten/start.aspx
