A new act on the general rules of third country nationals’ inward travel and Hungarian residence entered into force on 1 January 2024, introducing (similarly to certain other countries) the „residency through investment” concept in Hungary via the rules governing the „guest investor visa” and the „guest investor residence permit”. In practice this means that third country nationals making one of the three possible investments are entitled to Hungarian visa and residence permit. Guest investors and their family members are entitled to stay and work in Hungary without restrictions for 10 plus 10 years.

  • The lowest possible amount of investment is EUR 250,000 for which the guest investor is required to purchase unit in a real estate investment fund whose net asset value comprises minimum 40% of investments in residential real estate in Hungary;
  • A person purchasing a residential property with a value of at least EUR 500,000 in Hungary is also entitled to guest investor visa and guest investor residence permit (as from 1 January 2025); or
  • donating EUR 1,000,000 to a higher education institution maintained by a public trust with a public-service mission is the third form of investment for the guest investor visa.
