ETIAS Hungary for British

etias-hungary

Hungary entry requirements from the UK

To enter Hungary from the UK, travellers must have a passport that was issued no earlier than 10 years before their trip and is valid for at least six months from the date of entry.

With the launch of the ETIAS, the passport validity will likely be reduced to 3 months from the date of entry in Hungary. In addition, all visitors will need to have a valid ETIAS.

The Hungary ETIAS will be valid for 3 years or until the expiry date of the passport and will allow British citizens to spend a maximum of 90 days within every 180 days in the country. Multiple entries will be permitted for tourism, transit, short-term business, and study.

When will ETIAS be necessary to travel from the UK to Hungary?

The ETIAS launch does not have an official date yet but is expected to happen in November 2023. After the official launch date, ETIAS will be necessary to travel from the UK to Hungary.

Presently, UK nationals are free to travel to Hungary without the need for a visa, as long as they meet travel entry requirements and they do not stay longer than 90 days out of 180 days.

How to apply for ETIAS Hungary?

UK travellers can apply for ETIAS Hungary in 3 simple steps:

  • Fill in the ETIAS online application form
  • Pay for the ETIAS processing fee
  • Send the application for review

The entire process will take around 10 minutes and British visitors can complete it from anywhere in the world, before travelling to the Schengen Area.

The application form has to be completed in all its parts, making sure to provide accurate and up to date information. The following details will be required in Hungary’s ETIAS online application form:

  • Personal details, such as full name, nationality, gender, date and place of birth
  • Passport details, including passport number, issuing country, date of issuance and expiry
  • Contact information, including home address, phone number, email address
  • Answers to health and security questions.

ETIAS applications will be processed within 24 to 48 hours from the moment of online application. To make sure they receive their ETIAS Hungary in time for their trip, British travellers should apply at least 72 hours before departure.

Note: Delays can happen if the application contains mistakes or incomplete information. To avoid inconveniences, travellers should double-check the information provided to ensure it is free of mistakes.

UK citizens who are dual passport holders must choose one passport to use for applying online for the ETIAS and to travel to Hungary.

  • British travellers can no longer enter Hungary through EU border gates with their passport
  • A visa may be required to work or study in Hungary for the long term
  • UK visitors may need to provide a return ticket as well as proof of sufficient funds for their trip to Hungary..
