If your travel destination is only Hungary, or – in case of a Pakistani citizen - Lithuania or Estonia -, the Hungarian Embassy in Islamabad will deal with your application. If your travel destination includes more than one Schengen Member State, your application must be proceeded by the Embassy/Consulate of your main destination.

 

The following criteria may help you to decide whether you should submit your visa application at the Hungarian Embassy:

  • Your visit to Schengen States includes more than one destination and Hungary (or Lithuania or Estonia) - is the main destination of the visit(s) in terms of the length or purpose of stay;
