IMMIGRATION RULES AND PROCEDURES

 

Depending on which country (EU or non-EU) you come from, immigration procedures after arrival differ.  Students can only visit the Immigration Office on pre-arranged appointments and accompanied by their mentors.

You will need the following for immigration procedures in Hungary:

You will get a small registration card, please always keep it with you.

NON-EU CITIZENS:

you enter Hungary with a visa valid for 30 days, which will allow you to get your residence permit at the Immigration Office (IO) in Miskolc,you have to go to the IO within 3 working days after your arrival to get your residence permit and to report your address in Miskolc

Required documents: 

You will get a small registration card, please always keep it with you.

HEALTH INSURANCE

Please make sure you have the necessary health insurance.

EU-citizens: You will need a  European Union Health Insurance Card valid for the whole duration of your stay in Hungary, which will entitle you to free-of-charge emergency medical care. No other insurance is needed.

Non-EU citizens:  You have to make an insurance contract with an insurance company in your home country for the duration of your studies abroad. It means that you will have to pay full price for any medical service (visit to a doctor) and also for the medicine in Hungary and your expenses will be reimbursed in your home country on the basis of receipts. Please note that Erasmus student status and the Hungarian student card are not enough to get free-of-charge medical treatment. If you have no insurance, you will have to pay for everything and there will be no compensation later.

If any health problems arise during your stay, you can visit the university doctor’s surgery/dentistry in student hostel E/4 on the groundfloor. Ask someone to go with you to avoid language problems (or, if it is not urgent, you can ask somebody to make an appointment with the doctor). After a medical check-up the doctor will decide if you need a specialised examination or hospital treatment. If so, you will be given a warrant for further examination or hospitalisation.  In COVID times, please ask your mentor student  to help you make an appointment with the doctor by phone.

ESN  BUDDIES / MENTORS TO HELP ERASMUS STUDENTS

 

It is never easy to find oneself in a foreign country, surrounded by strangers, new circumstances, new customs, different people speaking an unknown language, and to get used to a new way of life. In order to avoid all these troubles and to make  life smoother, student mentors (buddies)  of ESN (Erasmus Student Network) will provide the incoming students with information and help in arranging studies and in the issues of everyday life. Each Erasmus student will be  contacted by a buddy well before arrival to be his/her personal mentor  all throughout the stay in Miskolc.
