General Information about Job Applications
In compliance with U.S. law, an employment application received from any individual not present in Hungary at the time of submission is ineligible for consideration. American citizens are required under Hungarian law to obtain residency in Hungary in order to work. An American citizen, who is offered employment by the U.S. Government and who is not already a resident of Hungary, must enter Hungary on a labor visa that has been issued by a Hungarian authority in the United States. Any expenses associated with this lengthy process are the responsibility of the applicant, e.g. transportation, physical examination, etc.
All offers of employment are based on availability of funding. The U.S. Government is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
