Australian passport holders:

Due to a visa agreement in power between Hungary and Australia, Australian passport holders can travel to Hungary without a visa for less than 90 days in a 180 days period. 


Citizens of third countries requiring a visa:

Third country passport holders do need a so called Schengen Visa in case they would like to travel to Hungary which is valid for 90 days. Due to a visa agreement in power between Switzerland and Hungary the Consulate General of Switzerland in Sydney is competent to issue Schengen visas if you are required to obtain a Schengen visa and your main destination is Hungary in the Schengen Area.

Please turn directly to the Swiss Consulate to submit your visa application.
