Must-have guide for newly arrived expats in Hungary

Your Ultimate Free Guide to Hungary - Inter Relocation

How can expatriates living in Budapest find foreign language education institutions? How can you find your way around the Budapest (public) transport system? And where can you meet other foreigners living and working in Budapest? Our recently updated Welcome to Our World guide is here to help. It introduces Budapest and the peculiarities of Hungarian living from the perspective of expats.

Foreigners flock to Budapest not only for sightseeing trips, they often settle down for longer periods as well. Choosing and arranging the right place to live, organising medical treatment, education, as well as acquiring the necessary permits can present serious difficulties for expats, and there is no guarantee that information pieced together from several sources on the internet will be of great help.

“From exploring schools to finding the right doctors”

“We receive most questions about real estate, since it is really hard to find a good deal that represents value for money when you are looking to rent, especially in such an oversaturated market. Even though we are not able to find city centre houses with gardens and pools either, our advisers do their best to find the ideal solution in the client’s interest.

Relocation services, however, cover a wide range of aspects of the arrival process, from exploring schools to finding the right doctors speaking the right languages, and locating electricians, if required. We have handled a huge number of questions over a period of more than fifteen years now, and we have used them to compile this guide to provide a comprehensive picture of life in Hungary for workers of SMEs and large corporations moving here.” – says Stuart McAlister, founder and manager of Inter Relocation.

You can download the guide from HERE, but Inter Relocation clients receive a printed copy too. Expatriates living in Budapest can find a wealth of useful information in our magazine at EXPAT PRESS, and in the Budapest Expats Group on Facebook that is open to everyone.
