The numbers are exploding – now the Viennese naturalization authorities are calling for help

In 2021, the number of naturalization requests increased by almost 200 percent. Now the responsible MA needs an additional 35 million.

People who want to naturalize currently have to wait about 300 days for an appointment with the responsible MA 35. This is rightly criticized time and time again. The government needs considerably more resources for this. The increased number of requests is repeatedly used as an argument. How dramatic the situation actually is is shown by an application to the “Krone” to increase the budget by no less than 8.5 million euros. This reads like a cry for help from an authority left to itself.

The refugee wave of 2015 is now hitting hard
It says: MA 35 conducted 10,586 naturalizations in 2021, which is an increase of 191 percent from 2020 (3635 persons). As of 2021, more than 621,727 non-Austrians live in Vienna under the responsibility of MA 35. The flight movements in 2015 and 2016 led and still lead to increasing applications for MA 35. A weakening of this migration trend is currently not foreseen.

New employees and safety
To counter this attack, you now need this extra cash injection. The money is needed, among other things, for the expansion of the telephone service, 93 new employees and a new building. In addition, expiring contracts with security personnel will be extended. “Due to the growth in personnel and the high number of applications mentioned, the continued employment of the flyers in the future is essential,” said the application.
