Expat Lawyers

CMS Budapest’s Expat Desk combines the expertise of employment law and tax colleagues of CMS Budapest, one of the largest legal and tax practices in Hungary. CMS Budapest’s Expat Desk is one of only a few international law practices that provide immigration services as well.

Our dedicated Expat Desk assists major multinational companies on a full range of services concerning the worldwide mobility of people, including employment law questions, obtaining visas/residence permits and work permits as well as sorting out tax, pension and social security matters. Due to the nature of the expat traffic in Hungary, most of the arriving individuals are exempt from the requirement for a work permit, but we often advise people from Asia, the US and other non EEA countries in relation to their permits, in addition to helping EEA expats in obtaining their registration or providing immigration law services. We also assist outbound expats, i.e. employees travelling from Hungary to work in other parts of the world.
