Student ID card


This is the first administration step after your arrival. You need to go to one of the government offices called Kormányablak=Government Window. Here you apply for the so called NEK-code which is necessary for ordering your student ID. Please watch the exact datas (date- and time of birth, mother’s maiden name, etc.) in the application form!

Till you get the plastic student ID you’ll receive a temporary form which is valid for 60 days. As a student of a Hungarian university you get the following discounts:

  • 50% off by travelling,
  • 50% off on city transport in case of a monthly card,
  • discounts in museums and other places – watch the discount signs and always ask!
