International Moving Information For Moving To Hungary

Aug 7, 2008
Hungary became a member of the European Union in 2004 and has quickly become one of the hottest international moving destinations in Europe. This country is a cultural and geographical mix of East and West and offers the best of both. If you are planning on traveling or moving to Hungary you will most likely begin in the city of Budapest.

Budapest is on the river Danube and has been at the center of the region's history since the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Recently it has become a hot-spot of international entertainment and cultures that rivals any in Europe. There are two airports in Budapest, Ferihegy I and Ferihegy II, which serve all major airlines and see flights from Europe, Asia and the United States on a daily basis. International moving companies can ship to either one of them by air or use the Danube as a connecting route to get your belongings there by sea.

The national language of Hungary is Hungarian but you will often hear Russian, Romanian, and a variety of dialects from Austria, Croatia and Serbia. English, as it has in other parts of Europe, has become a common second language for many of the local citizens and visitors alike. International moving from the United States and Great Britain has become such a regular event in recent years that there are very few places where English speaking business owners and government officials are not available.

Before beginning the process of international moving it is best to do some research and find out some basic information about the country you are going to. Hungary is a member of the European Union so many of the procedures you'll have to go through are the same as other countries in Europe, but there are some differences. Hungary does not use the Euro for currency, they still use the forint. They also have more security at entry ports than other countries due to their close proximity to the former Yugoslavia and the recent conflicts there in Croatia and Bosnia.

Other than that, Hungary is generally very welcoming to westerners. International moving companies have opened both in country and in other lands that specialize in moving individuals and families. It is best to hire one of these international moving experts to help you when you relocate because there are regulations and guidelines for entering Hungary. A medical exam and passport is required and all of your belongings must be packed neatly and be accompanied by a detailed inventory list that can be used by customs officials. There are also strict rules governing imports and many items that seem normal in the United States might be considered contraband in Hungary. An international moving company can tell you the difference.

Budapest and the River Danube have been the subjects of songs and tales for hundreds of years. A visit or move to this region will immerse you in a culture that offers romance, mystery and a slight chill in the middle of the night. Vampires, werewolves and monsters abound in local mythology and evil tyrants have left their mark on the land and the souls of the people there. In spite of all that, or maybe because of it, Hungary is an amazing place to live and work. Enjoy.
