The Hungarian passport is the 10th strongest in the world

Henley and Partners, a global leader in residence and citizenship planning, each year analyzes passport strength around the world. They count how many countries you can access visa-free if you hold a given passport, and rank passports accordingly. In January 2018, Hungary ranks 10th in the Henley Passport Index.

Hungarian passport

Hungary offers visa-free access to 168 countries, including the United Kingdom, the United states, and Canada. This makes Hungary an ideal destination if you are looking for a second citizenship and a new passport. Even if you only have residency, you can travel visa-free in the Schengen zone, and ask for a simplified procedure when traveling to countries where you do need a visa.

How do I get a Hungarian passport?

A Hungarian passport is available to all citizens of Hungary. You can easily become a Hungarian citizen if you have been living here with a residence permit for at least 8 years. If you have a spouse or children who are Hungarian citizens, you can also apply. Do you have parents or grandparents or other ancestors from Hungary? Dig up your family tree, and let us help you with naturalization, the process of acquiring Hungarian citizenship.

Is visa-free access to the Schengen-zone enough?

If your own passport is strong enough, but you still need visa-free access to the Schengen zone, you can opt for Hungarian residency. With a simple real estate investment, you can become eligible for a Hungarian residence permit. Enter the Hungarian Real Estate Residence Program, and enjoy the benefits of your new, European residency.
