  • All non-EU nationals seeking to work in Hungary for up to 90 days require both a work permit and a type D visa, according to recent clarifications from immigration authorities. Even individuals who would typically be visa exempt for short-term visits based on their nationality are subject to the type D visa requirement.

    The work permit must be obtained before the visa application can be submitted.

    What This Means for Employers

    Meeting the type D visa requirement will add to the preparation time required for affected employees to engage in short-term work stays in Hungary.
