Do I need a visa? Which are the visa-countries to Hungary?
EU-citizens do not need a visa to enter Hungary. If you are a non-EU-citizen, please check the list of countries at the website of Ministry of Foreign Affairs: if your home country is not included in the list, you need a visa.
Where do I apply for a visa?
The visa is applied for from the Hungarian mission or consular post in the country of your permanent or habitual residence. If the country has not got a Hungarian embassy or consulate, you must apply for it from a Hungarian mission in the nearest country to your own. Hungarian honorary consular offices also accept visa applications. They can forward the applications to the nearest diplomatic mission or consular post. However, they are not entitled to issue visas.
How do I apply for a visa?
The most up-to-date information with details and legal background is accessible at the webpage about entering to Hungary at the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. You have to fill in the short-time (for less than 90 days) visa application form. You can fill in the form at the embassy or download it from the ministry’s website. You may need to supply further details in addition to those mentioned above. Please contact the nearest diplomatic mission for more detailed information.
