    Overview of Travel to the UK from Hungary

    The number of Hungarians resident in the UK has risen dramatically in the past couple of decades since Hungary joined the European Union.

    There are an estimated 100,000 Hungarians currently in the UK, but the actual number could be anything as twice as much as this. Whatever the number, it’s evident that the UK is an increasingly popular travel destination for many Hungarians.

    If you’re a Hungarian looking to come to the UK, there are a range of visas and immigration options available to you.

    Some may only allow for short-term stays, such as if you want to do certain forms of temporary work or get married in the UK, whereas others are longer-term and may allow you to apply for permanent residence (known as indefinite leave to remain).

    Short-Term UK Visas for Hungarians

    The UK has a range of short-term visas to allow people to come and visit the UK.

    Note that if you’re planning to visit the UK from Hungary for tourism purposes, to study short-term, or to visit family or friends, you will not need to apply for a UK visa.

    However, you may need to apply for a visa if you wish to do certain activities in the UK, such as paid or unpaid work, among other things. These visas include the following:

    Many of these visas will allow you to stay in the UK for varying amounts of time. Some may be valid for only a few months, whereas some may be valid for a year or more.

    However, with all of these visas, you will be expected to leave the UK and return back to Hungary after your visa expires.

    Get in touch with our immigration experts for help with your move to the UK from Hungary.

    Long-Term UK Visas for Hungarians

    If you’re a Hungarian looking to live in the UK longer-term, there are also many visas that will allow you to do so.

    Some of these are work-oriented and will rely on you having a valid job offer in the UK as a prerequisite. Meanwhile, others are based around moving to the UK on account of having partners or family members who can support your application.

    Viable long-term UK visas include the following:

    All of these visas, and many others, will allow you to apply for indefinite leave to remain (ILR) after spending a certain amount of time in the UK.

    After applying for ILR, you will be able to live and work in the UK without the need for an employer or a family member sponsoring you.

    How Can IAS Help?

    The UK offers a wide variety of possible routes for Hungarians and other Europeans wishing to visit, or move to, the UK.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The main deadline to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme was 31 June 2021.

    However, you can still be eligible to apply under certain specific circumstances, such as if:

    • You have a Hungarian (or other EU) family member who was living in the UK by 31 December 2020
    • You’re exempt from immigration control, or you stopped being exempt from immigration control after 30 June 2021
    • You’re already in the UK with limited leave to enter or remain in the UK (such as if you’re here on a work or study visa) which expires after 30 June 2021
    • You’re a family member of a British citizen who you lived with in the EU
    • You have other reasonable grounds for not having been able to make the deadline

    In most cases, you will have to apply for a UK visa online from the gov.uk website before you come to the UK.

    You will have to ensure that your application for a visa has been approved and that you comply with UK entry requirements before travelling.

    You may also have to attend a local visa application centre (VAC) in order to give further information for your application.

    There is one VAC located for Hungarians to use in Budapest.
