HONORARY CONSULATE OF HUNGARY IN HAWAII
How can honorary consuls assist you?
The main duty of honorary consuls of Hungary is to provide guidance to Hungarian citizens in distress and offer assistance in case of emergency. They are not employed by the Hungarian government, they perform their work on a voluntary basis, and they have only limited consular authority. For example, while they are authorized to authenticate signatures and copies of documents, they are not able to accept passport or visa applications. Because they typically practice their consular office alongside a main profession, they are not always present or immediately available by phone. The honorary consul will refer you further to the competent Hungarian foreign mission if he himself cannot assist.
Only the Consulates General and the Embassy are equipped to process passports, and the Embassy's passport section lists the respective locations and contact information where you can apply for a passport. Visa applications are handled by the Embassy of Hungary in Washington D.C., where its visa section provides complete information about visa options and requirements.
