Do you have any plans to travel to one of the stunning Schengen States, Hungary? Understanding the Schengen visa application procedure is crucial for a trouble-free trip. In this article, we'll show you exactly how to get a Schengen visa for Hungary, along with helpful advice and necessary qualifications.


1. Understanding the Schengen Visa:
You are able to travel throughout any of the 27 Schengen States if you have a Schengen visa. It's crucial to remember that you must enter and leave the country through which you requested the visa. Hungary is one of the 27 Schengen States, so you must apply for a Schengen visa at the embassy representing your primary travel destination.


2. Short-term Visas for Hungarian Travel:
Schengen visas with a six-month maximum stay are categorized as short-term visas for Hungary for nationals of Bangladesh. It is important to note that Hungary has a consulate presence in Dhaka. Instead, the Hungary Schengen visas are handled by the Switzerland visa application center in Dhaka, which also processes the visa applications for short-term visas on behalf of Hungary.


3. Applying for a Hungary Visa:
The applicant must first choose the proper visa category before beginning the application procedure for a visa to Hungary. It is vital to arrange all the appropriate documents once the visa category has been decided. It's vital to remember that if any of the submitted documents are not in English, the applicant must include translations for each of them.


4. Online Application:
When the required documentation is ready, the applicant should use the Switzerland online application portal to complete the visa application form. It is essential to carefully fill out the application form and make sure all of the information supplied is accurate. Any fabricated or inaccurate information might result in a visa being denied. A printed copy of the application form should be requested when the form has been filled out and submitted electronically.


5. Document Submission and Biometric Enrollment:

6. Long-term Visas for Hungary:
For those seeking a long-term visa for Hungary, the applicant must book an appointment at the Hungarian embassy in India. Once the appointment is confirmed, the applicant will receive confirmation from the Hungary consular office in Bangladesh. The applicant should then submit the required documents in person at the consular office.
