Documents for work

Before you apply for job, you will need the following documents to be collected.

This is how you can apply for all the necessary documents to work in Hungary

Before the job application

Temporary protection status certificate
Place of residence (optional)
Tax registration card
  • Go to the local Tax Authority office
  • Apply for a tax registration number
  • Take the temporary protection status certificate and other personal documents (if possible) with you
  • You will receive a certificate first and a card later via mail at your place of residence

After you are hired

Social Security Number (TAJ number)


Ask your employer if they apply for your TAJ number directly online. If they do, the company will receive the TAJ number. (You can get your TAJ number later from your employer upon a request.)


Unfortunately, sometimes you would need to ask your TAJ number yourself. We will be here to help you if you need guidance.

You should follow three steps:

  • Request 3 documents from your employer: a Request form (Igénylőlap), an Order form (Megrendelő lap), and an Authorization (Meghatalmazás).
  • Take with you the following documents: request form, authorization and temporary protection status certificate.
  • Go to one of the NEAK (previously OEP) offices
