How much it cost for YOU to work in Hungary, in EU?
The simple answer is NOTHING ... Collecting fees (in any form) from Employees is PROHIBITED BY THE LAW in Hungary and in the EU and by DMW as well. Therefore if any agency asking for a "placement fee" or any other form of payment, they are breaking the law!

Before You Apply...

The Hungarians (Magyarok) were Christianised at the end of the 10th century, and the Christian Kingdom of Hungary was established in AD 1000. One of the oldest country in Europe.
Hungary joined the European Union in 2004 and has been part of the Schengen Area since 2007. It is a member of numerous international organisations, including the United Nations, NATO, WTO, World Bank, the AIIB, the Council of Europe, and the Visegrád Group. Despite EU membership, we do not use EURO, but our own currency, the Hungarian Forint (HUF or Ft.).

In Hungary, we speak Hungarian which is a Finno-Ugric language, member of the Uralic language family. The Hungarian name for the language is Magyar. Hungarian is one of the most difficult languages an English speaker can learn, as well as one of the most rewarding.

The capital of Hungary is Budapest, a beautiful city, very popular tourist destination.
