UK nationals living in Hungary have just one month left to submit their residency application.
The British embassy said that 1,200 UK nationals have so far applied for residency but there are still many who need to do so before the deadline. “UK nationals living in Hungary before the 1 January 2021 must apply for residency by 31 December, including those who have a residence permit issued before Hungary’s accession to the EU (pre 2004) or those married to a Hungarian national, unless they are Hungarian citizens (dual nationals),” it said in the statement. The embassy quoted Paul Fox, the ambassador to Hungary, as asking those “who have British friends, neighbors or family members who arrived in Hungary before January 1” to “ask them whether they have applied and, if not, encourage them to start the process now”.
