You will not obtain asylum in Austria, if you have already been in another safe country.
If Austria is the competent country for your asylum procedure, the authority in charge will examine your application for asylum.
You will not obtain asylum in Austria, if you have left your country of origin for economic reasons. For example, because you did not have enough money in your country of origin.
Currently, there are a lot of asylum procedures to be processed. Therefore, the process may take longer.
If you receive a positive decision in your asylum procedure, then you may remain in Austria.
If there is a legally binding negative decision in your asylum procedure, then you must leave Austria.
