Residence permit for other purpose

A residence permit for other purposes may be issued to a third-country national who plans to stay in the territory of Hungary for a reason other than those specified in Sections 19–27 of the Act on the Admission and Right of Residence of Third-Country Nationals, and fulfils the requirements of entering and staying in Hungary in other respects (e.g. for the purpose of language learning, etc.).

We recommend this type of permit for our customers who cannot indicate any entry purpose for other purpose-based permits.

Given that this type of permit affects the majority of our customers, and that obtaining this type of permit is particularly difficult, please be sure to consult with our experts before embarking on the permitting process alone!

If you want to be sure and want your application to be judged quickly and positively by the authority, contact our team of experts!

That is why it is essential to submit a complete, well-thought-out application in full compliance with the relevant legislation at the time of the first application, in which our experts can help.
