Immigration to Hungary

Hungarian citizenship based on your ancestry is a straightforward process, and an easy way to gaining EU citizenship.


Hungary is a member of the European Union with no intention of leaving (the latest public opinion polls also say that support for EU membership is stronger than ever), and Hungarian citizens can live, work, and study anywhere in the European Union.

As EU citizens, they are also allowed to travel without a visa to any countries of the Schengen zone, and several other countries. The Hungarian passport is the 10th strongest in the world, with visa-free access to 182 countries.

Hungary allows dual citizenship, which means you can enjoy the privileges of EU citizenship while not forfeiting the rights that come with your original citizenship.

The Hungarian naturalization procedure is quite straightforward and quick compared to other EU countries. If your ancestors were Hungarian citizens, you will be eligible for citizenship for sure – you just have to verify your eligibility with the right documents.


If your parents, grandparents, or other ancestors were Hungarian citizens, you are eligible for Hungarian citizenship. You will need to submit as proof the documents verifying your ancestors’ connection to Hungary (for instance birth, baptism, or marriage certificates of your ancestors) and your own connection to your ancestors (for example all the birth certificates that confirm the lineage between you and your Hungarian ancestor).

You also need to speak some Hungarian: more precisely, you need to speak Hungarian at a conversational level. You will be required to present your case to the consul or administrator in Hungarian, in your own words – why you want to become a Hungarian citizen, and what is your connection to Hungary.

While the current pandemic affects every area of our lives, you can still start the application procedure. Most consulates are still open depending on your country of residence, and they are still processing applications.
