The Hungary Citizenship Investment Process

For your application to be accepted, you will need to purchase Hungarian government bonds for €300,000 for a period of 5 years.

After the period, the invested amount will be returned to the investor without accumulated interest.

A Residency Bond Agent issued the bonds, which are then approved by Hungarian authorities.

The amount is then invested into government bonds that are assigned to the citizenship by investment program and cannot be used for trading in secondary market.

Once the security issue has been granted to the investor, the agent will provide the final declaration verifying that a treasury bond worth €300,000 will be purchased by a foreign investor within forty five days of his permanent residence being granted.

Applicants are also required to cover visa application and processing fees.

To reinforce on the investments, foreign investors may obtain a Letter of Bank Guarantee. Addition fees apply in this case.

You can use the help of an agent if you are not familiar with the laws of the country. However, you must ensure that the agent is registered in order to apply for Hungary citizenship.
