For students who need to extend their residence permit (does NOT apply to those who will be receiving their residence permit for Hungary for the first time)
From November 13, 2020, only those who have a pre-arranged appointment will be able to enter the Customer Service Offices of the National Directorate-General for Aliens Policing.
Instead of submitting your application for the extension of your residence permit in person, it is very much recommended that you do so online via the https://enterhungary.gov.hu site.
You can arrange for an appointment here: http://oif.gov.hu/index.php?lang=en (Under the Administration part: „Appointment booking”).
Please note that in keeping with the current regulations in effect, only persons with facial masks covering both their mouth and noses will be allowed into the customer service area.
After November 13, 2020, it will not be possible to pick up the documents that are ready in person, these will be mailed out to your official address (as registered) by the National Directorate-General for Aliens Policing. Please make sure that your name appears on the postbox of your appartment and that you check it regularly for notification from the postman about the arrival of an official document. This will include when and where you can pick up the letter containing your residence permit.
Remember, should there be any change in your address, you are legally responsible for notifying both the university and the National Directorate-General for Aliens Policing within 8 days! You will, of course, have to hand in a new, filled in and signed address card to the NDGAP.
