Immigration Update Hungary - Quota for non-EEA national workers
January 6, 2016
In October 2015, the Hungarian government introduced an annual quota on work authorizations for citizens from non-EEA countries. Going forward, new quotas will be announced every year. The current quota, introduced in August 2015, allows 59,000 work permits (or combined work and residence permits) to be issued to non-EEA nationals until the calendar year-end.
In addition, employers must now provide a headcount statement, stating the number of non-EEA nationals (assigned or locally hired) for the previous quarter, instead of one for the previous calendar year.
