Norbert Hofer, the candidate for Austria's right-wing Freedom Party (FPÖ), won 36.4 per cent of the vote, and will face an independent candidate in the final vote next month.
It was the Freedom Party's best result in a national election and comes after a campaign that focused on the impact of the migrant crisis.
More than 100,000 refugees have arrived in Austria since last summer.
The migrant crisis has divided the country and, in a major U-turn, the government, who initially backed German chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door policy, shut Austria’s borders.
FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache said: "This is the beginning of a new political era. Today political history is being written in Austria."

European nation are being ethnically cleansed by non-White immigration
YOU ARE THE ****ING RACISTS for supporting it but then how convenient it's not racism when it is towards us ..
Europeans must take back their homeland! we have rights too believe it or not. What rights of ours are being violated? hmm let me see. A right to exist? a right of self determination? we cannot have these things when our nations are drowning in immigrants.
We lose everything and gain nothing.Last edited by DearAnti-Whites; 25-04-2016 at 15:13.
