Before coming to Sopron

VISA

EEA-citizens (citizens of the EU, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) and also citizens of Switzerland do not need visa to enter Hungary; they can enter with their national ID-card or passport.
These entry regulations are applicable for a stay not exceeding 90 days.
As the students’ stay is longer than 90 days, EU/EEA-students should apply for a residence permit at the Regional Directorate of the Office for Immigration and Nationality after their registration at the university.

Non-EEA-citizens/Third country nationals have to apply for visa at the Hungarian Embassy or Hungarian Consulate in their country prior to arrival. This visa will be valid for 30 days only and after arrival and registration at the university, the students should apply for a residence permit at the Regional Directorate of the Office for Immigration and Nationality.
