EU and non-EU citizens in Hungary in 2021

The requirements for obtaining a residence permit in Hungary for citizens of the European Union are different from those that are not. For EU citizens, all they need is a registration card which they can obtain from the Immigration Office. The registration card will be valid for as long as the purpose for acquiring it is ongoing. For non-EU citizens, they will first need to acquire a visa at the Hungarian Consulate which they can use to enter the country. The visa is only valid for 30 days. During this time, you must apply for a Hungarian residence permit at the Immigration Office. The residence permit granted will only be valid for one year. We have experts in company registration in Hungary that can also guide you on which residence permit you need.
Please mind that if you are a citizen of the United Kingdom (UK), starting with 2021 new immigration regulations will apply, since the UK is no longer part of the European Union (EU). For those who are UK citizens who legally resided in Hungary prior to 1st January 2021, the obligation to apply for a new Hungarian National Permanent Residence Permit is imposed. This has to be done no later than 31st December 2021 and the obligation is also extended to other family members residing with you in Hungary
