PM Office: Portal launched for Hungarians seeking to return home

The government has launched a website designed to facilitate the return of Hungarians living abroad to their home country, Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen announced at the Hungarian Diaspora Council's meeting in Budapest on Thursday.

According to a statement by the Prime Minister’s Office, the government pays special attention to the situation of ethnic Hungarians living in the Carpathian Basin, in western Europe and in the diaspora on other continents.

The trend of Hungarians returning home has accelerated since the mid-2010s, with their numbers steadily exceeding 20,000 each year, the statement said.

The website has been launched as part of package of services devised by the government to help Hungarians return home, and it provides comprehensive information on moving to Hungary and facilitates procedures online.

The government has also designated 27 points in public administration offices where Hungarians returning home are offered assistance in English and Hungarian, the statement added.
