Hungary is a signatory to the Schengen Agreement.
- Border restrictions are usually not required between nations that have signed and implemented the pact. This covers the majority of the European Union as well as a few additional nations.
- Before boarding foreign planes or boats, passengers’ identities are typically checked. Temporary border restrictions are sometimes used at land boundaries.
- A visa issued to any Schengen member is also valid in all other countries that have signed and implemented the treaty.
Recognized refugees and stateless persons with a valid travel document issued by the government of any of the above countries/territories are exempt from obtaining a visa for Hungary (but not for any other Schengen country except Germany and, for refugees, Slovakia) for a maximum stay of 90 days in a 180-day period.
Citizens of Antigua and Barbuda are allowed to work in Hungary without a visa for the duration of their 90-day visa-free stay. This right to work without a visa, however, does not necessarily apply to other Schengen nations.
Croatian citizens may enter the nation by presenting their identification card, however they may not remain for more than 90 days in a 180-day period or work in Hungary without a work permit.
