Information for clients regarding coronavirus epidemic





We would like to kindly inform our clients that according to the decision of the Hungarian Government the borders of Hungary had been closed at 00.00 on March 17, 2020.
Having regard to the above, foreigners who have left or will leave Hungary will not be able to re-enter for the duration of the measure.


In order to reduce the spread of coronavirus infection the National Directorate-General for Aliens Policing makes the following recommendations to its clients:

  • We kindly ask our clients to wait outside the client areas at a sufficient distance until their turn.
  • The risk of disease and further spread of the epidemic can be reduced by avoiding personal appearance at the customer services.
  • We urge our clients, if possible, to make an appointment and in the lack of this, contact personally the customer services only in duly justified cases.
  • Please use the online system, Enter Hungary in order to submit applications and statements.
  • Completed residence permit documents will be delivered by post to a Hungarian address provided. If you are staying in Hungary, even if you requested to collect your residence permit personally, the document will still be mailed.


Please do not submit the following documents during the state of emergency:

·         request for official endorsement of invitation letter

·         applications for national permanent residence permit and EC permanent residence permit

·         application for issuing travel documents for persons possessing an immigration permit or permanent residence permit, or for stateless, refugee and subsidiary protected persons
