Teleport's Expert Tip

Organise and prepare all necessary documents, including photocopies, before your appointment to bypass high printing costs at the VFS centre. It’s wise to have everything prepared in advance.

Fee Payment: If your visa fee hasn't been paid online, it will be collected at the centre.

  2. Your fingerprints were already taken for a Hungarian visa in the past 59 months.
  3. It's physically impossible for you to provide fingerprints, corroborated by medical evidence.
  4. You are a dignitary such as a Head of State, a government official, or part of an official delegation on duty.

Photograph Specifications:

The digital photo should clearly show your face, without sunglasses or headgear, unless worn for religious or ethical reasons. Wearing brightly coloured clothes is preferable to light shades.

Minors:

All minors under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult (not staff from VFS Global).

Electronic Devices:

It's advised to leave electronic devices like laptops and USB drives at home as you might need to pay for locker facilities at the centre.
