Hungary Visa FAQs

  • add What is a Hungary Schengen visa?

    A Hungary Schengen visa is a special kind of visa which allows you to travel among all the Schengen countries including Hungary for a maximum period of upto 90 days. This is a traveller’s dream where with one visa you can travel to any of the other 25 Schengen countries along with Hungary.

  • add The Schengen Visa is valid for which countries?

    A Schengen Visa (issued by a consulate or embassy of a Schengen State) is valid for all 26 States of the Schengen Area (including the European territory of Hungary), unless it is marked otherwise on the visa sticker. So you do not need another visa to enter or stay in the European territory of Hungary. However, you must be in possession of documentary evidence for the reasons of your stay and your means of support. Schengen Area comprises of the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

  • add How long can I stay in the Schengen area on the basis of my visa?

    The Schengen Visa is a short stay visa and takes the form of a sticker affixed to your passport. The definition of “short stay” is a stay of "90 days in any 180 days period". This means that the total duration of stay is of maximum 90 days in any period of 180 days. The precise length of validity of your Schengen Visa is indicated on the visa sticker under the heading “Duration of visit”. With a single-entry visa you can enter the Schengen area only once. This is indicated on the visa sticker under the heading "Number of entries" by "1". A two-entry or a multiple-entry visa allows for two or several entries during the validity of the Schengen Visa. This is indicated on the visa sticker by "02" or "MULT" under the heading "Number of entries".

  • add Will all Schengen Visas be granted for 90 days?

    No, not necessarily all Schengen Visas will be granted for 90 days. You may get the Schengen Visa only for the number of days that you present in your travel itinerary and your flight & hotel bookings

  • add Can I apply again for a Schengen Visa if my application has been refused earlier?

    You are free to apply again for a Schengen Visa if your application has been refused earlier.

  • add What is the Schengen Visa cover letter?

    The Schengen Visa cover letter is a letter which summarizes your intent to travel to a country that is part of the Schengen area. In your cover letter you should explain:

    • the purpose of your trip
    • when and where you intend to travel
    • how your trip is going to be funded
    • day-by-day itinerary for your trip
    • duration of the trip
  • add As a Hungary short-stay visa holder can I extend my Schengen Visa while in Hungary?

    You cannot extend your Hungary short-stay while in Hungary except in special circumstances, and exceeding your permitted period of stay is considered an act of illegality or criminality. Instead, you must return to your home country within the permitted period of stay and apply for another Hungary Visa if necessary.

  • add If my Hungary short-stay multiple entry Schengen Visa is valid for a year, how long can I remain in the Hungary territory?

    A short-stay Schengen Visa allows you to enter and stay in a Hungary territory for a maximum period of 90 days within a period of six months.

  • add How long before the start of the intended visit should I apply for a Schengen Visa?

    You may only submit your Schengen visa application 90 days before your date of departure. We recommend that you apply at least 20 working days before the date you wish to depart as certain types of travel purpose may take longer than usual to process. For instance, the processing time of your Schengen Visa Application will take between 5-15 working days from your appointment date.

  • add How long does it take to obtain a Hungary Visa?

    Typically, a Hungary Visa (Schengen Visa) takes anywhere from 10 to 15 days to process in the Hungary Embassy/Consulate. The processing time for a Hungary Visa is dependent on several factors and can change without notice at the consulate's discretion.

  • add How can I check the status of my Hungary Visa application?

    Applicants can check the status of Hungary visa application online using the Hungary VFS Reference number and Date of Birth. Kindly visit the Track Your Application section of the VFS Hungary website.

  • add Is it mandatory for me to take an appointment for a Hungary Visa?

    Yes, an appointment is mandatory for Hungary Visa in order to provide your biometrics and submit your visa documents.

  • add My family is also applying for the Hungary Visa, how many appointments should we make?

    Every member of the family needs an individual appointment.

  • add I am traveling to multiple Schengen countries. From which Consulate should I apply for my Schengen Visa?

    Schengen Visa must be applied from the Embassy / Consulate of the country where you will be staying for maximum number of days. If your stay has equal number of days in each country then you must apply to the Embassy / Consulate of the country which would serve as the first port of entry. 

  • add Can I leave the Schengen area and return again with my Schengen Visa?

    Schengen Visas may allow for a single-entry or multiple entries. With a single-entry visa you can enter the Schengen area only once. This is indicated on the visa sticker by "01". With a visa allowing for two or multiple entries you may enter twice or several times during the validity of the Schengen Visa.

  • add What is the difference between a single-entry Schengen Visa and a multiple-entry Schengen Visa?

    According to the EU, a single-entry Schengen Visa allows entry to the Schengen area only once, meaning you are not permitted to re-enter the Schengen Area after leaving, while a multiple-entry Schengen Visa allows multiple entries into the Schengen Area within the visa’s validity period (90 days total within 180-day period).

  • add Do I have to present any other document at the Schengen external borders apart from my travel document with the Schengen Visa?

    The short-stay visa does not automatically entitle you to enter the Schengen area. At the border (or during other controls) you may have to show the visa but also provide additional documentation, for example; sufficient evidence that you have sufficient means to cover the stay and the return trip. It is therefore recommended that you carry with you copies of the documents which you presented when applying for the Schengen visa (e.g. letters of invitation, travel confirmations, other documents stating the purpose of your stay).

  • add Do I have to apply in person for the Schengen Visa?

    Yes, applications by mail will not be accepted. The Schengen visa application should be presented in person because biometrical data must be recorded.

  • add Why is personal appearance mandatory for Hungary Visa?

    As from 2nd November 2015 following the introduction of the Visa Information System (VIS), all Schengen visa applicants in India have to appear in person in order to provide biometric data (fingerprints and digital photography). The photograph can be digitally taken at the time of the application or scanned from an existing one. For subsequent applications within the 5 years the fingerprints can be copied from the previous application file in the VIS. In case of reasonable doubt regarding the identity of the applicant, the consulate will again collect fingerprints within the 5 year period specified above. Furthermore, the applicant may request that they be collected if, at the time when the application is lodged, it cannot be immediately confirmed that the fingerprints were collected within this 5 years period.

  • add What is the role of VFS?

    VFS Global Services Pvt Ltd (VFS) is the Service Delivery Provider for the Embassy of Hungary in New Delhi. The role of VFS is to accept visa applications and to dispatch passports and documents back to clients, on behalf of the Embassy of Hungary. VFS does not play any part in or influence the outcome of your visa application.

  • add Do I need to provide travel insurance for my Visa application?

    Yes. Applicants should prove that they are in possession of adequate and valid travel insurance to cover any expenses which might arise in connection with repatriation for medical reasons, urgent medical attention and/or emergency hospital treatment or death, during their stay(s) on the territory of the Schengen Member States. The insurance should be valid throughout the territory of the Member States and cover the entire period of the person’s intended stay or transit. The minimum coverage must be EUR 30000.

  • add What are the Schengen Visa travel insurance requirements?

    Your travel Insurance plan for a Schengen Visa must meet the following requirements:

    • Minimum coverage of 30,000 Euros (approx. USD $34,000)
    • Coverage for repatriation for medical reasons
    • Coverage for emergency medical treatment
    • Coverage for expenses resulting from your death
    • Coverage for the entire period of your intended stay
    • Valid in all Schengen Area countries
  • add Can you process the Travel Insurance for me?

    Even though Travel Insurance is a mandatory requirement for processing Schengen Visa, you are strongly advised to purchase a health / travel insurance to secure yourself as medical treatment can be very expensive in the Schengen country. Your travel insurance offers protection against unexpected emergencies on international travel such as coverage of medical expenses, flight delay and cancellations, passport and baggage loss or personal accident.  For financial safety and security on your international trip we highly recommend you to purchase travel insurance and avail our special offer.

Hungary travel guide

Hungary conjures up all kinds of images for travelers, from the city lights of Budapest to small traditional villages in the hill sides. It is also a country with many lovely small cities and towns showing old architecture, ruins and other historical attractions. Read more

The countryside offers some beautiful scenery with mountains and lakes, and opportunities for hiking and other activities.

Budapest is by far Hungary’s biggest tourist attractions. Often compared with cities like Prague, Budapest is a cultural delight, with beautiful buildings, thermal baths which have been popular since the Middle Ages, and historic sites at every turn. The capital is an elegant, stylish and lively city made up of two separate settlements clustered on either side of the Danube River; hilly Buda has a wealth of graceful Habsburg and neoclassical buildings, while sprawling Pest is its commercial centre with a generous scattering of art nouveau architecture and an ad-hoc part scene.

The city has long been the focus of Hungary’s artistic, musical and literary community and is by far the best place in the country for a choice of bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Further afield, some of the best sightseeing destinations in Hungary include the city Pecs in the Mecsek Mountains, and Szeged, the capital of Csongrád region. Esztergom, one of the oldest towns in the country, is another good option for those looking to get off the beaten path. To enjoy some of the beautiful scenery tourists may also want to investigate the hill towns, some of which even offer limited ski facilities in winter.
