Business Immigration Services
Immigration to Hungary
Immigration is built upon a system of complex and difficult legal rules. It is difficult for non-experts to fully understand the law and identify the best immigration strategy to pursue. VJT & Partners’ immigration lawyers handle all aspects of business immigration cases, advising medium to high-net worth foreign individuals and multinational corporations.
Hungary’s immigration policy makes a number of immigration options available to third-country nationals seeking temporary or permanent residence in Hungary. In line with current trends, both the EU and Hungary want to attract new investors by offering them various benefits and incentives.
In an attempt to encourage foreign investment in Hungary, the Government aims to provide new benefits and has preferential immigration categories for business investors.
Benefits of Hungarian Residency
Situated in the heart of Europe, Hungary’s location and mild climate offers its residents an active, varied and an affordable lifestyle. In addition, the post-secondary education has a reputation for its high quality, with Hungarian degrees widely accepted across the EU. Hungarian residents are allowed free-movement. The costs of acquiring immigration residence permits are relatively low in Hungary and have a large number of benefits.
This is highlighted by the act allowing for medium and high net worth 'investor residency' in Hungary. This offers permanent residency under preferential conditions for non-EU nationals willing to invest into government residency bonds. Read more about the Investor Residency Bond Program
Hungarian Business Entrepreneur Residency Program
The Hungarian Business Entrepreneur Program offers non-EU nationals the possibility to set up business in Hungary, through which they can obtain Hungarian temporary residence permit. This program can be favourable for many non-EU nationals as the temporary residence permit may be obtained under preferential conditions: the company registration procedure is fast and simple in Hungary, and the necessary amount of initial investment is considerably low as compared to other EU countries.
