zur deutschsprachigen Version
to the German version

Proof of citizenship is the confirmation that a particular person possesses the Austrian citizenship. The citizenship can be acquired by decent or by conferral.

The responsibility depends on the principal residence [Hauptwohnsitz]. Persons who do not have their principal residence in Austria receive the proof of citizenship from the responsible Austrian substitute authority.
