Information on Brexit


European Union citizens are entitled to reside in Hungary without any permit within 90 days.

Nationals of the European Economic Area (EEA) – including UK citizens – have the right of residence exceeding 90 days within a 180-day period with a registration certificate.

A residence card may be issued to a family member who is a third-country national accompanying an EEA national or joining an EEA national.

Permanent residence status shall be granted to an EEA national who has resided legally and continuously in the territory of Hungary for five years and a family member who is a third-country national and has resided legally and continuously in the territory of Hungary for five years. Where an EEA national has acquired the right of permanent residence under either of the preferential terms, his/her family members holding the right of residence shall also have the right of permanent residence.


After Brexit, UK citizens are granted preferential treatment based on a valid residence permit or document at the time of Brexit.

 Citizens of the United Kingdom can manage administrational issues personally at the customer service of the Immigration and Asylum Office or electronically.

 We would kindly suggest to read all necessary information (especially the required annexes) provided on the website in order to have a fast and effective procedure.
