When you want to hire foreign workers in Hungary, your new employees will need certain documents that enable them to work for you – some documents of their own, and some to be obtained from Hungarian authorities.
The most important question is where your new hire is coming from?
In order to take salary in Hungary, your new employee will need a tax number and social security number – in order to pay taxes and the social security contribution after their salary. Accordingly, if you hire foreign workers, they will need to apply for a tax card and a social security card.
If you hire foreign workers in Hungary, it is most probably because they have special skills. If the position you want to fill requires special qualifications, your new employee should have documents that confirm they have these qualifications. Even if it is just a high school or a BA degree, you will be asked to present a hard copy of it, together with a certified Hungarian translation.
In Hungary, all who enter employment should sign a labor contract with their employer. The labor contract should indicate the gross salary and the first day of employment, together with the exact position and its FEOR code (a government-recognized code for the tasks of the position). Your foreign employee will need to be registered at the tax authority at least one day before they start.
