Business immigration

Are you an international businessperson who wants to start doing business in the European union and obtain EU residency at the same time? Then set up a company in Hungary. Operating a company in Hungary will make you eligible for a Hungarian residence permit, which in turn enables you to travel visa-free in the Schengen zone.

Immigration for the whole family

Operating a Hungarian company you can also apply for Hungarian residency for your family, meaning your spouse and underage children. Then, depending on the main applicant’s procedure, the application for the family visa may be submitted together with the main residency application or after the first residency has been granted. Holders of dependent visas will have the same rights as the main applicant. At the same time, if you have dependent children who are not underage, they may be granted a student visa on their own if they enroll in Hungarian higher education.

All paperwork in one place

If you decide to move to Hungary, you will need several documents apart from the residence permit itself. The tax number and the social security card can be obtained from different authorities, while you might also want to e.g. localize your driving licence. All this can be easily arranged if you entrust a single provider to cater to all your needs.

Your passport must be valid at least 90 days longer than the permit you are applying for; this means that if your passport is close to expiring, you will need to renew it before we submit your residency application, otherwise your permit will only be issued up to the expiry date of your passport.

Hungarian state health insurance provides comprehensive coverage in Hungary and basic coverage in the rest of the EU as well. This option is only available to Hungarian residents, so you will be eligible for state health care after you get your residency in Hungary. In the meantime, we can recommend you a comprehensive private health insurance plan that is not very expensive and acceptable for residency.

Minimum 30 days before the expiry of your resident permit, we must submit an application for renewal and confirm that the details of the original application are still in place.

The price of the driving license localization service covers the costs of the process itself and the work of your personal helper who will get everything done for you. The price of the official translation varies in each case based on the source language, and therefore cannot be calculated in average. Not including it in our price is how we can give the best price to all of our clients.
