South African Residents
Hungary is part of the borderless region known as the Schengen Area and South African residents require a Schengen visa in order to enter Hungary. A passport valid for at least three months from your departure is required and a visa will only be issued if blank pages are available. Requirements for the procurement of a Hungarian visa are subject to change but application requirements include round-trip travel itinerary specifying entry and exit dates from the Schengen state and proof of funds to support yourself during your stay (approximately $50 USD per day). Visas are issued by the Hungarian embassy in Pretoria.
