Hungarian Full Birth Certificate

When applying for a marriage certificate, passport, or even a visa to travel abroad, you might be required to submit a Hungarian Full Birth Certificate. Although all Hungarian citizens are issued with short form (abridged) birth certificates, the only legal document they can use for travelling and other official use is the Hungarian Full Birth Certificate or long-form birth certificate. On this page, you will learn more about what this certificate is and how we can help you obtain a copy of your vital document.

There are two types of Hungarian birth certificates, one being an abridged (rövidített születési anyakönyvi kivonat) and the other being a full birth certificate (szét nem születési bizonyítvány).


What is a Hungarian Full Birth Certificate?

A Születési anyakönyvi kivonat is a copy of the entry in the birth register which details information on both biological parents of an individual. Hungarian birth certificates are Government certified documents that contain stamps or seals indicating their authenticity. The Hungarian birth certificate is a vital record that contains the following information:

  • Birth name(s)
  • Date and time of birth
  • Sex
  • Birth registration number
  • Particulars of both biological parents


Who needs to apply for a Hungarian Full Birth Certificate?

Your Unabridged Birth Certificate is an official public record, and as such, you might need to produce this document when applying for:

  • Passports (útlevelek)
  • Police Certificates (rendőri igazolás)
  • Insurance
  • Employment
  • Personal Identification
  • Visas


What is the turnaround time for obtaining a Hungarian Birth Certificate?

In general, it takes anywhere between three and six weeks for a full birth certificate to be issued. This lead time is also dependent on the fact that you provide us with as much as possible details about your (or your child’s) birth, including place of birth and details of both biological parents. In rare cases, it can take up to 8 weeks for these certificates to be issued.
