I’m writing this blog post while seating at the Vienna International Airport waiting for my plane to Berlin. This is the first opportunity for me to sit down, exhale and get into writing. Life has been hectic the past days, but let me first tell you about my portrait studies.
Пишу цей допис, поки чекаю на свій літак до Берлінa у віденському аеропорті. Це перша можливість присісти, видихнути і взятись знов за писання за останні декілька місяців. Життя було трохи хаотичним останні декілька тижні, але давайте я вам перш розповім про свої портретні студії.
This month has been one of the most challenging and life-changing (obviously), as it has been almost a month since I moved to Vienna. There were a lot of unpleasant moments, to say the least, but let us just focus on the positive here and reflect on all the great things that happened in October of 2016.
Warning: This post does not bear any artistic value, may include pictures from my phone, pocket camera, dslr as well as a lot of rambling and useless information.
GETTING RESIDENCE PERMIT
Oh, I can feel a smile on someone's face seeing that title, if s/he went though this kind of process. In order to give you some background, to get a residence permit (as a student or pupil) in Austria for a year, you need: an invitation from the corresponding authority, where you're applying for RP; a passport; a health insurance for a year; a confirmation of enrollment; a copy of your visa D and a statement from your bank account, that proves you have enough money to live for a year - should not be older than two weeks! So I had around 5 days (including two weekend days) to collect that and apply, otherwise my bank statement would expire and things would get complicated. Praise the Lord I made it in time!
