My wife's family are all Hungarian although she was born in England. Her birth was never registered in Hungary (unfortunately) and we spent a long time trying to get her dual nationality. We first enquired in Hungary and were told she couldn't have it because she didn't have a Hungarian address. This was wrong so we tried at the Hungarian embassy in London and they said we had to apply in Hungary. We tried again in Hungary and they told us we had to apply in the UK as that's where we lived at the time. yet again we applied (in person) at the Hungarian embassy in London and they, again, told us to apply in Hungary!!!!!!
We gave up and waited until we moved here and were told the process should be very straight forward and should only take around 3 months. 9 months later and a lot of leg work she received her id card which now makes things easier.
The bottom line is that many officials lie and/or don't know their jobs. It's often easier for them to turn you away than actually get on with what they should be doing.

What a horrendous experience for your wife. Things are all sorted.

It was really frustrating as we knew she was entitled to it but everyone just kept passing the buck.
When we moved here she had a great deal of help from a really nice and efficient lady in our local mayor's office who dealt with the bods in Budapest.
I was going to apply for citizenship as I (wrongly) presumed I'd be entitled to it, being married to a Hungarian national but I'd have to jump through so many hoops and vastly improve my Hungarian language skills so I can't see it happening

It's something I thought about after retiring and I have moved to Hungary but I would only do it if it benefited me financially.

Just been on embassy site London and they have numerous forms for different things. Included is a form for verifying nationality. so can't see why they can pass the buck and refer you to do it in Hungary.

That is apply for nationality.

Was that at the Hungarian embassy? If so, everything is possible in Hungary - especially if it lightens their workload

We started the process 7 or 8 years ago and completed it about 3 or 4 years ago. They may have updated their system since we tried.

[quote=Peter_in_Hungary;10619245.
...... In 2014 Hungary must let foreigners buy land (EU regs) but as Hungary does not want its countryside owned by foreigners .......

Does anyone have any firm news?

I understand that from May 2014 foreigners may be able to buy a Nyaraló outside the village with land up to 1 hectare?

Almost as many rumours as draft regulations.

There was a meeting in the Min of Ag. on Friday because 230 NGO organisations signed a petition regarding the proposal for the new law. Of the 230 organisations 150 sent representatives but there was no one there from the government side who had any authority to accept or decline proposals. Eventually after some protests the Secretary of state responsible for preparing the Land law (dr. Simon Attila) turned up but when he saw the proceedings were being filmed he demanded the cameras be turned off and no recordings were made. The NGO organisers refused saying that they wanted a record of the meeting so given that the meeting was to be recorded the Secretary of state left without saying anything. He was not prepared to say anything on record!!!

3 draft proposals ago is up on the ministry web site but the 2 most recent ones are not there

Apparently there is to be a vote in parliament next week, already delayed 2 weeks as a result of the NGOs petition and the government's failure to respond in a legal manner to that petition. At this moment none of the NGOs have been able to find on any government web site the proposed law that is supposed to be voted upon next Friday

So speculation abounds in the absence of fact

They voted today I think - I wonder where / if there is a simple statement in English of what the law now is, or rather will be in May 2014?
