According to research by SchengenVisaInfo.com, most applications at Hungarian consulates for short-stay Schengen visas in 2017 came from Russia.
The website compiled data from consulates last year to create a comprehensive picture of where Schengen states receive most applications from. In the case of Hungary, most applications for short-stay Schengen visas arrived from Russia.
The Moscow consulate alone received 46,049 applications, with the number of applications from Yekaterinburg also more than 10,000. The St. Petersburg and Kazan consulates also received a considerable number of applications, with the total amount of applications submitted in Russia amounting to 61,690. The rate of visas not issued was just under 1%, with 602 applications denied.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, consulates in Ukraine received 59,591 applications, which puts the former Soviet republic in second place, just behind Russia. A large portion of the applications came from Berehove and Uzhhorod, both cities with a significant ethnic Hungarian population. The two consulates together saw 39,609 applications submitted, with the consulate in Kiev receiving just under 20,000. Some 686 applications were denied in total in Ukraine, amounting to more than 1% of all submissions.
In third place, consulates in China received 28,230 applications. About half of the applications were submitted in Beijing, with Shanghai and Chongquing also receiving thousands. The amount of denied applications was significantly higher than in Russia and Ukraine, with a total of 1,390, amounting to almost 5% of visa applications.
Consulates in Istanbul, Turkey; Almaty, Kazakhstan; and Mumbai, India; also received a large number of applications, propelling them to the top ten cities in the ranking. The highest rate of rejected applications came from Algiers, Algeria, with a staggering 64.1% rejection rate.
A numerically insignificant number of applications resulted in “Limited Territorial Validity” visas, meaning that holders may only enter specific countries named in the document instead of all Schengen states.
