IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Hungary has adopted a new regulation that requires residents of Hungary sponsoring family members on residence permit applications to provide notarized statements confirming that they can provide care and financial support for the applicant.
Background: Non-EU nationals applying for a temporary settlement permit, national settlement permit or an EC permanent residency permit must establish, upon submitting the application, evidence of housing and “livelihood” in Hungary. Evidence of livelihood can be established with a statement from a family member living in Hungary confirming that the family member can provide care and financial support for the applicant. Under a new rule, these statements must be attested by a notary public in Hungary before they are submitted.
BAL Analysis: The change adds a step for some applicants seeking temporary settlement, national settlement or EC permanent residency permits. Applications without proper supporting documentation risk being turned away or unnecessarily delayed.
