Hungary Business Visa

Hungary Investor Program

Hungary is a landlocked country in Central Europe. Its capital, Budapest, is bisected by the Danube River and famed for its dramatic cityscape studded with architectural landmarks from Buda’s medieval Castle Hill and the grand neoclassical buildings along Pest’s Andrássy Avenue to the 19th-century Chain Bridge. The country has a long, rich history, and its culture reflects Roman, Turkish, Slavic and Magyar influences.

A beautiful tourist destination and the national currency is Hungarian Forint (HUF). The cost of living in Hungary is much cheaper compared to other European countries and you can take advantage of cheaper real estate prices in Hungary.

What other residence permit options can you offer?

Our other most popular service is residency through company formation, or business immigration. If you want to start doing business in Europe, you should consider opening a company in Hungary. Running a company makes you eligible for residency in Hungary, and HELPERS can help you with all aspects of the process from writing a business plan through providing a virtual office and staffing solutions – and of course, applying for your residence permit or your family’s visas.
