Hungarian citizenship


Before going into details, you should take into consideration the following principles:

I. Procedure

The assessment is made by completing the form "Állampolgárság igazolása iránti kérelem" in Hungarian (the form is only available in Hungarian).

II. When the Hungarian citizenship is determined, the foreign certificates (birth, marriage, divorce) must be registered in Hungary

A., The required documents to be submitted with the CERTIFICATE OF BIRTH application are as follows:

1. The original birth certificate (i.e. full birth certificate, showing data for parents as well. This is required in ALL cases.)

The assessment of the citizenship of a person might be a very complicated task, due to the historical changes of borders and citizenships in Central Europe during the 20th century. It is exclusively done by experts of the Nationality Verification Division of the Office of Immigration and Nationality in Budapest.
