Non-EU nationals working in Hungary usually need a work permit. The first step in this process is finding a position and signing a labor contract with the future employer. Please, do not hesitate to contact and consult us if you’re looking to be employed in Hungary or plan on employing a non-EU citizen!

While EU nationals working in Hungary do not need work visas, non-EU citizens generally require a permit to work. This is true whether they are employed with a Hungarian company through a labor contract, or with their own company. The only exception is for non-EU nationals doing business in Hungary who work for their own business as directors. If the director, however, does any work in the company that is not related to management, he may need to apply for a work permit.

The procedure is quite complex and time-consuming. If you are planning to work in Hungary or are looking to employ a foreigner, do not hesitate to contact us.
