Hungarian Golden Visa Program FAQ

Since the Hungarian Golden Visa program has already launched, some questions asked previously have now been answered by the Immigration Office.

What is a proof of funds in the Hungarian golden visa program?

When you apply for your 10-year Hungarian residency, you will need to provide a proof of funds pretty early on. However, this does not mean that you have to make the investment in the real estate fund right away.

Useful Tips

The Hungarian government has published plans to introduce a new golden visa option for investors (known in Hungarian as “guest investor residence permit”), making this the latest and most attractive investment residency program in the EU.

What to expect from Europe’s latest Golden Visa program for investors?

Investors can choose from the following options:

  • EUR 250,000: purchase of bonds issued by a real estate fund registered by the Hungarian National Bank (MNB)
  • EUR 500,000: purchase of Hungarian residential real estate
  • EUR 1 million: donation to a designated educational or cultural institution

Either type of investment will grant the investor and their family residency in Hungary for 10 years, with no minimum stay requirement.


Europe’s newest and most attractive investment immigration program presents an exceptional opportunity for getting PR in an EU and Schengen member state, and live, do business, or travel freely to and within Europe. In exchange for a safe and state-guaranteed investment of EUR 300,000 to be returned at the end of the 5-year term, applicants of all nationalities can obtain permanent resident permits with only a single visit to Hungary (and a 60,000-euro processing fee). Invest for 5-years – and get lifetime residency for the entire family in a matter of weeks!





Our goal is help you realize this totally safe investment and make you feel secure throughout the whole process.

The Hungarian Investment Immigration Program is an excellent way for those who want to invest in the nation to quickly become permanent residents of Hungary. The program provides a fast track to permanent residency status, bypassing many of the normal waiting periods between each step. However, there is no preferential treatment given to investors who wish to become Hungarian citizens. Still, if you want to move to Hungary, and have the money to invest, this can be an excellent choice.

Yes and no. Currently, you need to have permanent residency in Hungary for several years before you can apply for citizenship and get a Hungarian passport. However, there is a modification to the Hungarian immigration law in the works that would speed up this process for participants of the investment immigration program. Speak to one of our experts and get the latest updates directly!

Our other most popular service is residency through company formation, or business immigration. If you want to start doing business in Europe, you should consider opening a company in Hungary. Running a company makes you eligible for residency in Hungary, and HELPERS can help you with all aspects of the process from writing a business plan through providing a virtual office and staffing solutions – and of course, applying for your residence permit or your family’s visas.

You get a Hungarian permanent resident permit for yourself and your family (spouse and underage children), which is as good as a passport to all countries of the Schengen visa zone. Moreover, you get full VIP service throughout the whole application process, including liaising with the investment agency, immigration lawyers and the Hungarian authorities / consulate.

Just write us a letter, and we will take you through the whole procedure. The basis of this type of residence permit is a EUR 300,000 investment into Hungarian government bonds, sometimes also referred to as Hungarian residency bonds. This is not a purchase, but an investment for five years, at the end of which you get back the full sum. No catches, no risks – the Hungarian government guarantees your money is safe. The only price you have to pay is the EUR 60,000 government processing fee.
