Non-Immigrant Visas

Re-apply for a Visa

Applicants who have been refused a non-immigrant visa are strongly discouraged from re-applying until their situation has improved and they can demonstrate stronger ties to Hungary or another country of residence. Until then, it is highly improbable that an applicant who was recently refused would be issued a visa after a second interview.

Applicants should not re-apply only because they want a different consular officer to assess their case or because they would like more time to explain their situation. All consular officers have access to information from previous visa interviews and use this to help assess whether an applicant’s situation has improved. Unless new information is presented, a different consular officer will likely render the same decision as in the original case.

Applicants should only re-apply if they can present new and compelling information to the consular officer that was not shared at the time of the first interview. Any new information must help the applicant establish stronger ties to Hungary or another country of residence. In the absence of such information, applicants are urged to wait until they can provide more evidence in their case.

Please visit the Schedule a Visa Interview and Application Procedures pages for more information.
