VFS Opens Three Hungary Visa Application Centres in Saudi Arabia

Residents of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia can now apply for visas to Hungary at three newly opened Visa Application Centres.

Applicants can visit the VFS Global centres located in Al-Khobar, Jeddah and Riyadh to submit visa applications and enroll for biometrics.

The centres will make it easier for customers planning a European holiday or business trip, as visa application centres for several other missions, including many Schengen member states, are located in the same premises.

Since commencing visa processing operations in Saudi Arabia in 2005, VFS Global serves 19 client governments in the country. VFS Global has been serving the Government of Hungary since 2010, and currently serves the client in 8 countries from 33 visa application centres globally.

 We are proud of the fast-growing number of foreign citizens visiting our country every year and deeply believe that the excellent offers of our tour operators, hotels, restaurants and the wide choice of attractions will encourage more and more Saudis to visit Hungary. I can assure you that Hungary does not only wholeheartedly welcome the Saudi visitors but also offers them a very safe, secure and stable environment, said HE Dr Laszlo Szabo, Deputy Minister of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The opening of the Visa Centers in the three most influential regions of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a very important step in this direction. I am confident that the visa centers will help us achieve our goal to make the visa procedure even faster and smoother and will also significantly contribute to the development of the co-operation between Hungary and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the field of tourism and businesses.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the third country in the Middle East, after Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates, from where applicants can apply for a visa to Hungary. Another centre in Bahrain is expected to be opened in the coming months.

- Unified Visa Application Centre, 2nd floor, Al Katheery Centre, Opposite SABB Bank, Al Rakaa, Al-Khobar.
