  • ​The authorities reserve the right to examine the authenticity of the presented data and the submitted documents. Presentation of false data will lead to the refusal of the visa application. 
  • In case of successful application, the applicant will get a visa allowing him/her a single entry to Hungary to collect the residence permit. The visa will be valid for 30 days, within the period of three month following the positive decision by the Immigration Authority. In practice this means that if the decision in your case is made on 1st March, you will be able to enter Hungary until 1st June spending there a maximum of 30 days. Within these 30 days you will have to collect your residence permit at the Regional Immigration Office. If you enter Hungary on 29th May, you will have to make sure to collect the residence permit within the validity of your visa (three days), consequently we advise successful applicants to enter Hungary at least 3-4 weeks before the end of the validity of their visas.
