British embassy: UK nationals in Hungary have one month left to apply for residency

UK nationals living in Hungary have only one month left to submit their residency application, the British embassy said on Wednesday.

So far 1,200 UK nationals have applied for residency but there are still many who need to do so before the deadline, the embassy said in a statement.

“UK nationals living in Hungary before the 1 January 2021 must apply for residency by 31 December, including those who have a residence permit issued before Hungary’s accession to the EU (pre 2004) or those married to a Hungarian national, unless they are Hungarian citizens (dual nationals),” it said in the statement.

The embassy quoted Paul Fox, the ambassador to Hungary, as asking those “who have British friends, neighbours or family members who arrived in Hungary before January 1” to “ask them whether they have applied and, if not, encourage them to start the process now”.
