Visa cases, like other consular services, are strictly by appointment only. Appointments can be booked directly through our Konzinfo Booking System at https://konzinfobooking.mfa.gov.hu. Please find more details on the Office Hours, Appointment Booking page.
Please note that, due to the high demand, appointments may fill up swiftly, especially in the peak summer period. We recommend that you book your appointment as much in advance as possible, since fast-tracking or expedited appointments and procedures are not available. You may book your appointment up to six months prior to the planned date of travel. The Consular Section is not obliged to accept applications submitted less than 15 days before the planned date of travel.
