GRADUAL REINTRODUCTION OF CONSULAR SERVICES IN ENGLAND AND SCOTLAND - CORONAVIRUS/ COVID-19 UPDATE
In February 2021 both --> England and --> Scotland published their own roadmap out of current lockdown rules. In line with these roadmaps, Hungarian consulates in England and Scotland can gradually reintroduce previously suspended consular services. Due to remaining social distancing rules, consulates still cannot operate in full capacity therefore you are kindly requested to book an appointment only if your application is urgent. For visa information please click here.
Examples of exceptional circumstances:
- A passport application is considered as urgent when the previous passport has already expired or expires within the next 2 months and you don't have other travel document (such as a Hungarian ID or foreign, ie. British passport); Please avoid double bookings: we can only take either a passport application or an ID application per person at a time. Double bookings will be cancelled automatically.
- Registration of birth is considered as urgent, especially when the child's only nationality is Hungarian
- Legalisation of signature is considered as urgent when it is necessary to avoid international travel
