In order to enter Hungary, North American citizens need a valid passport.
U.S. or Canadian citizens: You are required to obtain a Hungarian VISA/Residence permit in order to stay in Hungary for more than 90 days. BSM staff in Hungary will help you apply for the permit once you arrive in Hungary. This is not a requirement for the summer program as the stay is less than 90 days.
Non U.S./Canadian citizens: You may need a VISA in order to enter Hungary. Please check with your home country consulate and the Hungarian Consulate General’s Office about special documentation requirements before departure. This process can be quite lengthy requiring 2 to 3 months to complete.
