Refugee Travel Document Visa for Hungary

Post by flyingdaddy2020 » Tue Feb 22, 2022 1:21 pm

Hi all,
There is so much information on the internet, I'm just confused.

I hold a Refugee status in the UK and a 1951 Refugee Travel Document. I'm planning a visit to Hungary. Do you have any info if they require visa from UK RTD holders?

Cheers!

Apparently you don’t need a visa to hungry
But it’s worth checking with the embassy

Update:
I was able to travel to Hungary with a RTD, no visa required. So until now what I've found, with RTD you can travel visa free to Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Hungary and Lithuania. Probably few more but you need to double check before travelling.

Does your travel document say ‘Convention of 28 July 1951’ on its cover? If so, you do not need a visa if your travel document was issued by one of the countries on the list:

Bulgaria
Croatia
Cyprus
Ireland

Not sure why it didn't copy the full list, but UK is on it, apologies.
Does your travel document say ‘Convention of 28 September 1954’ on its cover? If so, you do not need a visa if your travel document was issued by one of the following countries:

Bulgaria
Croatia
Cyprus
Ireland
Romania
United Kingdom
You can stay in the Netherlands without a visa for a maximum of 90 days in a 180-day period. You will, however, still need to meet certain requirements.
Check out the links (https://www.netherlandsworldwide.nl/vis ... -stateless, https://www.netherlandsworldwide.nl/vis ... thout-visa) for more info on this.

It's all in the link that I posted above.
Conditions for visa-free travel
Whether you can enter the Netherlands without a visa depends on your nationality. The Schengen Visa Advisor helps you determine whether you need a visa to travel to or via the Netherlands. If the Visa Advisor shows you do not need a visa, you can stay in the Netherlands and the Schengen Area without one for a maximum of 90 days in a 180-day period. You will, however, still need to meet certain requirements.

You must hold a passport or travel document issued within the last 10 years.
Your passport or travel document must be valid. Are you a national of a country outside the European Union (EU)? Then your passport or travel document must be valid for at least 3 months after your date of departure.
You must have proof that you have enough money to cover your costs for the duration of your stay (€55 per day). If you cannot meet this requirement, you can ask someone to act as a guarantor for you.
You must be able to demonstrate the purpose of your stay to customs and immigration officials.
You must be able to prove you have travel insurance that covers medical expenses.
You must have a return or onward ticket.
You must not be considered a threat to public order, national security or international relations.

Hello. Thank you for the update.
Please when travelling, did the airline or immigration ask for your BRP or is it fine to travel just with the RTD?
Thanks

I traveled to Hungary with Ryanair, no visa required. France, Spain and Latvia requires a visa for sure. The only way to skip that hassle, fly to a EU Country which does not require visa like Germany, Lithuania, Netherlands, Italy etc. then take another flight or train. The only problem is you need to exit the Schengen area from the same country you entered. You can't enter via Germany and exit via France!
