Visa Waiver Program: If you are a citizen of a Visa Waiver Program partner but unable to travel to the United States under that program, you should apply for a nonimmigrant visa at least three months in advance of your desired travel. If you do not have imminent travel plans, you should pay the nonimmigrant visa application fee, fill out the DS-160 nonimmigrant visa application form at ceac.state.gov/genniv/, and schedule a visa appointment. If your travel is imminent, you may request an expedited visa appointment. Please include in your request the date and purpose of your travel, as well as a copy of any U.S. Customs and Border Protection message you may have received regarding your ESTA status. More information about restrictions to travel under the Visa Waiver Program, including the requirement for an electronic passport, is available at https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/visit/visa-waiver-program.html.
Important notice: We ask applicants who do not speak English or Hungarian to bring a translator to the U.S. Embassy for their visa interview. The name, date of birth and passport or ID number of the translator should be reported to the Embassy with at least two days before the interview date, through the U.S. Visa Information Service at email@example.com.
Payment notice: Please note that the MRV fee must be paid only in local currency HUF, based on Current Consular Exchange Rate published on this home page. Reminder: If you pay this fee in USD, the bank will NOT take your payment and you will be liable for all costs.
