As of 22 May 2016, the Directive 2016/801/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on the conditions of entry and residence of third-country nationals for the purposes of research, studies, training, voluntary service, pupil exchange schemes or educational projects and au pairing* entered into force. Provisions of the Directive must be observed and incorporated into their legislation by all member states.

Requests for accreditation


In Hungary, the administrative procedure of the accreditation of research organisations hosting third-country national researchers is carried out by the NRDI Office as set forth by the Government Decree 181/2007 (VII. 6.).

Requests for accreditation shall be addressed to the President of the NRDI Office and submitted to the following mailing address:
National Research, Development and Innovation Office,
H-1077 Budapest, Kéthly Anna tér 1.

The request can be submitted also via the E-paper interface.

The Directive aims to ease the travel and stay of third-country nationals (i.e. nationals from outside the European Union) in the EU for research purposes, thus countering the lack of scientists in certain areas. The Directive enhances training and mobility opportunities in research and opens the borders of the EU and the member states to third-country nationals who can be allowed to enter and stay in the EU for engaging in research activities. This greatly contributes to the attractiveness of Europe, including Hungary, to frontier researchers worldwide.

In line with the Directive, no additional authorisation procedure is required for the employment and staying of a third-country national researcher in Hungary if the researcher entered into a hosting agreement with an accredited research organisation pursuant to Act LXXVI of 2014 on scientific research, development and innovation. In that case, the research organisation shall only inform the Immigration and Asylum Office and the NRDI Office about the conclusion (and the termination) of a hosting agreement with the researcher and to forward the same to the NRDI Office immediately. This way, research organisations (budgetary organs, public benefit institutions, businesses, economic operators) being approved in an accreditation procedure can employ researchers from third countries easier and simpler.

Hosting agreements must include

  • rights and obligations of the researcher and the accredited research organisation;
  • information on any planned visits to other member state(s) by the researcher in the framework of mobility if known at the time of conclusion of the hosting agreement;
  • focus, purpose and schedule of research;
  • time of teaching allowed beside research activities which may not exceed one-fifth of the researcher’s working time;
  • duration of the hosting agreement;
  • cases for termination of the hosting agreement.

In Hungary, the administrative procedure of the accreditation of research organisations hosting third-country national researchers is carried out by the NRDI Office as set forth by the Government Decree 181/2007 (VII. 6.). Requests for accreditation shall be addressed to the President of the NRDI Office and submitted to the following mailing address: National Research, Development and Innovation Office, H-1077 Budapest, Kéthly Anna tér 1. The request can be submitted also via the E-paper interface.
