The European Travel Information and Authorisation System is a new online system that is due to enter into force at the end of 2022 and become a requirement in 2023. Byevisa has compiled all of the information currently available so you know what this authorisation is, how it will work and how we can help you acquire this pass once it becomes available.

All About the ETIAS for Hungary

Want to take a ride on continental Europe’s oldest metro or explore Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe? You need to have your paperwork in order first.

In the past, tourists from countries including the US, Australia, Canada and Japan didn’t require authorisation to visit Hungary and other European destinations. Starting in 2023 though, it will be obligatory for these nationals and many others to apply for a visa waiver.

The good news is that with Byevisa you can apply in no time at all through the new online system. This electronic system, known by immigration officials as the ETIAS, is designed to speed up the time it takes for you to go through airport security when you arrive so you can start enjoying your trip as quickly as possible.

You need to apply for this authorisation if you are planning to travel to any of the countries that form the Schengen area, including Hungary, for tourism, business, medical treatment or transit purposes.

Please note, this does not apply to some European nations including the UK and Ireland as they are not in the Schengen zone.

Applications can be completed in a flash via the Byevisa website. Once you have received confirmation that your pass has been approved, it stays valid for up to 3 years from the date of issue. This authorisation allows you to enter any Schengen zone country multiple times. You can stay for up to 90 days within a 180-day period.

If you are immigrating to the country or going there to study, then a different type of authorisation will be required. If this applies to you, please get in touch with your nearest consulate or embassy for further information. You must make sure you have all the appropriate documentation in order before you make the move.

Difference Between the Hungary ETIAS and a Hungary Visa

The type of passport you hold determines whether you can apply for the ETIAS travel pass or not.

You are eligible for the ETIAS authorisation if you are from one of around 60 countries including Australia and the United States. It will allow you to visit countries in the Schengen Area, for a duration of up to 90 days during any 180-day period.

People from certain nations including India, China and Russia aren’t able to obtain the ETIAS. They require a visa for the Schengen zone instead to enter the country for tourism or business purposes. In order to apply for it, you will need to make an appointment at your nearest Hungarian consulate or embassy.
