Hungary Visa Requirements
Hungary participates in the Schengen Zone and Schengen Visa requirements. That means there are no border controls between members and no border inspections by rail or vehicle when traveling from Hungary to Austria, Slovakia and Slovenia. Some countries that are not members of the Schengen Zone require a Schengen Visa to enter Europe. More than 40 countries outside the Schengen Zone do not require a visa. Exemptions include citizens of Australia, Canada, Mexico, Japan, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. Check the list of countries that do not require a visa at Hungary’s Consular Services site or search individual country status at VisaHQ. For a list of exempt countries, visit Project Visa.
Hungary does not participate in the Euro, so be prepared to acquire and use the Forint (HUF).
Electrical Adapters for Hungary
In Hungary you will need a Type C electrical adapter, which is the common standard throughout most of Europe.
