Coronavirus FAQ

You can ask the frequently asked questions and answers here:


Immigration Office - Residence permit

My residence permit will expire soon. How can I renew it? 

Expiring residence permits will be automatically lengthened until 45 days after the end of the state of emergency in Hungary. This is stipulated by Government Decree 85/2020 (IV. 5.) If your residence permit is about the expire, we advise that you apply for extension immediately or very soon after the end of the state of emergency. This will give you the best chance to have your permit extended in time as the authorities may be overloaded with applications after the end of the state of emergency. If you have any further questions, please contact the Immigration Office.
