Criminal Record Check

This service is available across Hungary

Who Is This Service For?

This service is for any foreign residents who have lived in Hungary in the recent past and who are required to present a Police Clearance Certificate.

A criminal record check in Hungary results in obtaining a certificate that indicates whether an individual is registered as having been convicted of any crimes or activities that are against the law in recent years. It is valuable for numerous legal procedures. 

This document is crucial for various administrative processes, such as acquiring the nationality of another country (naturalisation process), competing for a public position, starting work in a school with children, or preventing issues when renewing your residence card. Frequently these bodies ask the interested party to provide the certificate themselves.

Who Is This Service For?


  • Anyone over the age of 18 or individuals represented by another can request this certificate.
  • Digital certificate to apply online or registered professional such as a lawyer empowered to request the certificate on behalf of the applicant


If using a lawyer as a proxy, the process is as follows:

  1. Authorise the lawyer to act as your proxy, often requiring a Power of Attorney
  2. The lawyer submits the application on your behalf.
  3. Required documents are provided by the lawyer.
  4. The lawyer follows up with the relevant authorities.
  5. Once processed, the lawyer receives the criminal record certificate.
  6. The lawyer can arrange legalisation via The Hague Apostille stamp, as required
