I. Visa services

Pakistani nationals, as well as third country nationals legally residing in Pakistan, and other nationals, in case their country of origin has no visa waiver agreement with Hungary are required to apply for a Visa to Hungary. 

We kindly inform all visitors that on the basis of bilateral agreements, the Hungarian Consular Section in Islamabad issues short term “C”-type Schengen visa representing Lithuania and Estonia, for citizens residing in Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Citizens of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan holding an ordinary (non-diplomatic, non-service) passport may also apply for visa at the Embassy of Hungary in Islamabad, if they wish to travel to Hungary.

1.) “C”-type, short term (less than 90 days) Schengen visa applications

Schengen visa information

Schengen States issue uniform visas for short stay visit not exceeding 90 days in any 180-day period. The Schengen visa may be issued for a single entry (as a rule for the 1st time visitors of the Schengen area), for two entries, or as a multiple entry visa in case the applicant proves the need or justifies the intention to travel frequently as well as proves his/her integrity and reliability, in particular the lawful use of previous Schengen visas, etc. (as per Schengen Visa Code, Article 24).

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 dealt by the Embassy/Consulate of your main destination. The following criteria may help you to decide whether you should submit your visa application with the Hungarian Visa Application Centre.

  • Hungary, (or Lithuania or Estonia) is the sole destination of your visit(s);
  • 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;
  • If you cannot determine which is your main destination, but Hungary or Lithuania or Estonia is the first Schengen State you wish to enter.

Please note that the Embassy of Hungary in Islamabad issues visas only for residents - or for applicants legally residing - in its territory of its responsibility: in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and citizens of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, holding an ordinary (non-diplomatic, non-service) passport.
