Refugees can access the same rights as Hungarian citizens, with some restrictions. They can access social benefits, if eligible, receive reimbursement of learning and educational costs and healthcare. Refugees can be employed under the same conditions as Hungarian citizens. There is no government agency in Hungary that is responsible for refugee integration, therefore integration support relies on non-state actors, such as NGOs or universities.

Hungary does not have a nationwide system which is based on uniform principles and procedures for the validation of skills, knowledge and competences. The recognition of skills, knowledge and competences acquired through non/in-formal learning falls under the responsibility of either the employers or the bodies/institutions that mediate between employers and employees, such as headhunter companies or NGOs. Since the system for the validation of non-formal and informal learning outcomes is at a very early stage in Hungary, the policy aim is to develop connections between lifelong learning and different levels of study. Applicants can request either the recognition of the level of education, or the validation of a degree or certification. Refugees in Hungary are exempt from fees for recognizing diplomas and receive information about this service during their asylum procedure. The costs of credit transfer in higher education are borne by the concerned higher education institutions.
