If you are a Non-Eu citizen and you want work in Hungary, you need a Work Permit.
From Since 2014, the government has made a series of changes to immigration law. From January 2014 work permit and residence permit processing will be provided through a so-called merged process for third-country citizens. The work permit application currently has to be done as part of the residency application. The name of the new type of permission is: "Residence Permit for the Purpose of Employment".
If somebody applies for a residency permit in the EU, he/she has to justify the reason of the application. In the case of an application for "Residence Permit for the Purpose of Employment" ( "Work Permit"), you have to prove to the Authorities that you would have a job in Hungary. Nobody could get a "Residence Permit for the Purpose of Employment" ( "Work Permit") without a Hungarian "Job Offer" It is not possible to obtain a "Work Permit for seeking a job" in Hungary. If you do not have any job offer, please contact with one of the Hungarian recruitment agency. You can find the list of the biggest recruitment agencies in our guide. You can download our free guide to a Hungarian Work Permit.
