Chapter Summary

The Constitution contains a few guarantee provisions relating to Hungarian citizenship, while the other rules pertaining to acquisition and loss of citizenship are contained in a law adopted by a two-thirds voting majority. Taking into account the rules in force and available statistics, an inconsistent picture of migration policy and law can be discerned for the following groups of migrants: (a) internationally protected persons who have to cope with Hungarian legislation in combination with a minimal support system and a penalty for reduced integration efforts; (b) residence and settlement permit-holders, including EEA nationals, family members and third-country nationals through direct and indirect integrative provisions in new laws; and (c) applicants for naturalisation through the constitutional examination and procedural requirements. This chapter is an initial attempt to describe immigration legislation and practice as reflected in the measurability of migrants' integration in a kin-state that is basically applied to a kin-minority.

Keywords: Citizenship; EEA nationals; Hungarian legislation; immigration legislation; integration; kin-state; migration policy; naturalisation; settlement permit-holders; third-country nationals
