According to the current Hungarian legislation all Hungarian citizens have to have their births, marriages and divorces officiated outside of Hungary registered in Hungary.
Request for registration of death can be submitted personally at the Hungarian Embassy or Consulate General according to the residency of the representative of the deceased person.
What kind of documents you need:
1. Documents proving the hungarian citizenship of the deceased person for example;
- a valid or a less than a year expired Hungarian passport
- valid Hungarian ID card
- a Citizenship Certificate not older than 3 years or a Certificate from the Simplified Naturalization (without expiry date).
In case the representative who requests the registration of the death cannot provide any of the above mentioned documents of the deceased there is a need for a verification of the Hungarian citizenship of the deceased before the death can be registered.
2. Application Form
3. The Canadian original Death Certificate
This original copy will be kept in a Hungarian archive and a new Hungarian Death Certificate will be issued in exchange.
The certificates issued in Canada usually don’t contain the personal data which is necessary for the Hungarian registration. Every province has a certain type of certificate which is the only acceptable version by the Hungarian Registration authority. The information about these certain types of certificates can be found on the following link of the website of our Embassy in Ottawa:
In case you are not able to obtain a new certified copy of the Death Certificate please bring the old original copy that is in your possession. In this case you have to submit this original one but you can make a request to receive it back at the end of the procedure. We have to make a certified copy of this original one and this certified copy will be kept in the Hungarian archive. Please find the fee of the certified copy under the Consular Fee menu.
4. A copy of the birth certificate of the deceased person.
5. A copy of the Hungarian marriage certificate or a divorce certificate of the deceased person or a death certificate of the spouse of the deceased person in order to prove the current marital status of deceased.
we would like to draw your attention to the fact that, in view of the recent legislative change, the Canadian birth / marriage certificates has to be translated to Hungarian in the future. The translation has to be a certified translation. A certified translation of divorce is also required.
Based on the applicable legislation, the following persons/company translations are accepted as certified translations.
