If your travel destination is only Hungary, or – in case of a Saudi resident - Lithuania or Slovakia -, the Hungarian Embassy in Riyadh will deal with your application. If your travel destination includes more than one Schengen Member State, your application must be dealt by the Embassy/Consulate of your main destination. The following criteria may help you to decide whether you should submit your visa application with the Hungarian Visa Application Centre.
