Introduction / History

A small number of South Asians live in Austria. They have mainly come as single young men who have yet to come together with their families or have married Austrian women. There were numbers of South Asians coming to Austria in the 1990's, particularly Pakistanis and Bangladeshis but the amount of them coming has lessened since. There are not many Tamil asylum seekers looking for residence in Austria compared to in other European countries.

In 2005 the Pakistanis in Austria were more than four thousand and there has been an increase in families arriving from Pakistan. Most Pakistani immigrants are Muslims. They have several festivals for religious and cultural events. There are mosques. There are also Pakistani Ahmadis in Austria as well as a few Pakistani Christians.

There are many Pakistani students taking higher education courses in Austria. There are three Pakistani cricket clubs registered with the Austrian Cricket Association. An Austro-Pakistani society has been formed with the desire to improve Austrian and Pakistani relations.

The Pakistanis in Austria speak Urdu and Austrian German.

In 1980 in Austria, the first society for the Hindu religion came into being for Hindus emigrating from the subcontinent of India. Many Indian tourists visit Austria every year.

The Indian population is not large. Most of them are likely to be in Vienna. In the city of Linz there are two Indian restaurants and an Indian food shop too.
