VFS Global Opens Hungary Visa Application Centre in Manama, Bahrain

Residents of the Kingdom of Bahrain can now apply for visas to Hungary at the visa application centre launched for the Embassy of Hungary in the capital city of Manama.

VFS Globals centre, which opened today (17 March 2016) can be used to submit visa applications and enrol for biometrics.

The centre is located on the 18th Floor of the Diplomatic Commercial Tower in the Diplomatic Area of Manama.

The new centre joins eight other client governments served at the same premises, making it more convenient for travellers planning multiple business or leisure trips abroad.

The Hungary Visa Centre is open as follows:

Submission Timings: 0800 1500 | Sunday - Thursday (except holidays as declared by the Embassy).

Passport Collection: 1500 1600 | Sunday - Thursday (except holidays as declared by the Embassy).

The opening of the Hungarian Visa Center in Manama is an important step in strengthening one of the main aspects of the Hungarian-Bahraini bilateral relations, namely its human side, said H.E. Mr Ferenc Csillag, Ambassador of Hungary to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kingdom of Bahrain and the Sultanate of Oman. We have achieved considerable successes in the past years by paving the way for the strengthening of our bilateral economic ties by signing some important agreements, like the avoidance of double taxation, the agreement on economic and technical cooperation and just recently a brand new air traffic agreement, which we hope will open up the path to direct flights to Budapest by Gulf Air. We are also negotiating a special bilateral agreement on introducing a visa-free travel for special and diplomatic passports. The latest topics on the agenda of our relations are the planned mutual economic and political visits of high dignitaries and officials and the establishment of a Joint Intergovernmental Economic Commission.

The Kingdom of Bahrain is the fourth country in the Middle East, after Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from where applicants can apply for a visa to Hungary.
