Visa Requirements for Hungarian Citizens
Visa requirements for citizens of Hungary are administrative entry restrictions that the authorities of countries and territories worldwide place on Hungarian nationals.
The Henley Passport Index currently ranks the Hungarian passport 10th among the passports of the world in terms of travel freedom, tied with those of Lithuania, Poland, and Slovakia. This is because Hungarian passport holders are granted visa-free entry or access with a visa on arrival to up to 130 countries around the globe.
Hungary is a member of both the European Union and the Schengen Area. Therefore, Hungarian citizens are granted freedom of movement to all EU and Schengen member states for an unlimited period of time without a visa or passport. To gain entry to these destinations, they are simply required to present a valid Hungarian ID card at a border checkpoint.
Other countries that grant visa exemption to citizens of Hungary permit travelers with a valid Hungarian passport a visa-free stay of between 15 days up to 1 year depending on the destination, for purposes of either tourism, transit, or business and trade activities.
Roughly 40 countries have implemented an Electronic Travel Visa Authorization for Hungarian citizens. These expedited application protocols permit visitors from Hungary to obtain an eVisa or electronic travel authorization for short-term stays exclusively online.
They remove the need to wait in long border queues to apply for a visa on arrival or visit an embassy in person to submit supporting documents. However, for long-term stays in these destinations, an embassy visa will be required. Additionally, a consular visa for Hungarians is required for around 110 territories no matter the period of stay or purpose of travel.
