Afrikaner Farmer-Hungary Tour Update—and Non-Farmer Opportunities

Project Nova Europa is pleased to announce that the president of the TAU-SA (formerly known as the Transvaal Agricultural Union of South Africa), Louis Meintjies, and Assistant General Manager, Henk van de Graaf, will be going to Hungary during the last week of February.

Hungary Map

The Hungary fact-finding mission originated with Project Nova Europa and was funded by supporters from around the globe. The two day appeal was so successful that it allowed the TAU-SA mission to be expanded from just one delegate to two.

However, as the appeal went out, Project Nova Europa was contacted by numerous white South Africans who were not farmers, who also sought to leave that country.

In response to those requests, we have actively looked into channels whereby non-EU nationals—including South African citizens—who are not farmers might be able to move to Eastern Europe.

So far, we have established that it is possible for non-EU nationals to move to Eastern Europe, under condition of fulfilling certain employment-based requirements.

We have clearly identified a demand for IT specialists, although there are shortages for all manner of skilled and semi-skilled workers.

Anybody seeking further information is urged to contact us via the contact form on this website.

Please note that Project Nova Europa is not an employer, and can only provide pointers to individuals seeking to relocate. We cannot undertake to seek or provide employment.

In line with the prognosis sketched out in Nova Europa, we have identified Eastern Europe as the region with the single greatest potential of offering a European bastion in which the European people and their civilization can be preserved

    Hi

    This is great news , if any opportunity comes up please advise.

  2. Sándor says:

    Just a note. Hungary is in Central Europe, or in Eastern-Central Europe, but not in Eastern-Europe.

    BOERS ARE WELCOME IN HUNGARY!!!

    • Károly Mikesi says:

      It’s exactly so. Thank you for this note. Even most of the citizens in West Europe do not understand why this difference is so important to us, not to mention those in South Africa.

    • Robert says:

      Hi there. Any opportunities for teachers there?

  3. Geri says:

    Dear Mr. Louis Meintjies, and Dear Mr. Henk van de Graaf!

    Where can we meet with You in Hungary?

    An enthusiastc Hungarian man. 🙂

  4. Gerhard Fourie says:

    I am very interested in this project

  5. Howard Smith says:

    good day to you
    I am very interested to find out more. my experience lies in the building/construction industry and I have also done a little farming. my partner is a qualified school teacher and also holds a diploma in conservation. we are both very interested please.
    kind regards
    Howard Smith & Karen Marx.

  6. Frank says:

    What skilled opportunities is available in Eastern Europe ?

    • Joe says:

      Hi,
      There’s a few. Not as many as in the West, though. The biggest problem is the language barrier. Because of this I suggest to move to a big city like Budapest which is the capital of Hungary. There are lots of international companies in there. You can get along with your English there.
      You can also start your own business as a farmer. Since last year now foreigners can buy lands.
      The Hungarian Gov runs a scheme called “Letelepedesi Kotveny”. It’s the Hungarian version of US green card. It can be bought. You can be settled with it, can work, even you can become a Hungarian citizen. It is very expensive though. Not for everyone.

  7. Hennie Jooste says:

    Hi

    I am not a farmer, but I would like to leave with my family. South Africa is a mess and we need to get away from here.

    • Elizabeth says:

      I feel the same way, and would love to get myself and my children and grandson out of this country, please let me know if there is any possible way that we can do this, we as white people are threated with ours lives, treated bad, and have no future here anymore

  8. Juan says:

    Any opportunities for qualified electricians?

    • Joe says:

      Hi,
      Electricians are wanted bad there. Problem is the language barrier. Most of the people don’t speak any foreign language at all.
      The best chance you got is in the capital of Hungary. There are lots of international companies there. Lots of foreigners live in there.

  9. Robert says:

    Any chance for teachers

    • Joe says:

      Only if you are qualified teacher.
      Under a new law, now only real teachers can teach – for instance – English in schools. Lots of foreigners lost theirs jobs because of this.
      As a private teacher who gives lessons you still could work.

  10. Johannes Venter says:

    Hi I am 52, not a farmer, and working in the IT industry. I am one of the highest qualified NetApp Certfied Engineers in the Country, and looking for a position in Europe.

  11. Damon Kansas says:

    Am interested to know if there is any need for experienced English editors in Eastern Europe – media/websites/company communications etc.

    many thanks

  12. Eloff Groenewald says:

    Are there possibility for IT engineers and Graduate foresters?

  13. Sarel van Wyk says:

    Please let me have all new posts as I am interested in relocating to Hungary.

  14. Helen Creamer says:

    Definitely looking for a country that will accept ordinary citizens

  15. jacob says:

    Great opportunity. Would definitely also consider relocating there.

  16. Mark says:

    I am not a farmer but owned a small holding.Would like to know more.Also be updated as to what our chances are.

  17. Charline Lind says:

  18. Nancy James says:

    Seeking urgent information with regards to re-locating to Hungary.
    Thank you

  19. Marieta Voges says:

    Excellent initiative!

  20. Willem says:

    Very interested, i am not a farmer at the moment but grew up on a farm and would love to farm again if possible !!

  21. Akos Marosy says:

    I am sure you will be welcomed by Hungarians, we like hard working farmers. I feel sorry for youbecause you are suffering a lot and it is a good idea to return to Europe.

  22. John says:

    As a Hungarian I’m proud that my country always welcomed hard working people with open arms. The Boers are welcome likewise.

    Pay no attention to the the liberal “civil organizations” in Hungary who already started lobbying against the Boers – because these liberals are not even Hungarians. They have no right to tell us who we welcome in our own land.

    Welcome.

  23. I think this is a wonderful idea I’m worried as a white south African for my family

  24. Ettiene Fivaz says:

    Good day

    I would like to get some more information on the possibilities available for South African Citizens.

    Please, could you direct me to the best site or email address to do so?

    Thank you for your time.

    • Cecília says:

      I will look it up for you, but I don’t have time now. I need to make dinner and tomorrow is fully booked with family and mess (I’m a Hungarian housewife)..
      I think I can reply to you on Monday, hope I will be able to find back this post. Basically, the institute handling refugee claims is called Bevándorlási és Állampolgársági Hivatal, short for BAH (Office for Immigration and Citizenship) and I will check their website, maybe they also have info in English , I don’t know.

      Regards

      • Cecília says:

        Hi,

        As promised, I’ve tried to look up the details for you. As far as I see, there’s not much chance to get a temporary or permanent settlement permit in Hungary unless you come from an country belonging to the European Community. As far as I understand, the only option for you would be to ask for asylum. Here is the link to the details: http://www.bmbah.hu/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&layout=item&id=521&Itemid=728&lang=en#. You can walk through any border stations if you are willing to submit an application for asylum in Hungary. That is something that the muslim invaders are unwilling to do,that is the reason they prefer to cut through the fence instead. I haven’t checked but I think if you find an employer that needs you then you can get a work permit through that company. I don’t know what happens if yo come as a tourist, buy a house here and ask for asylum at that point, though?But why do anything legally? Thousands of people are are crossing Euroep’s borders illegally, you can mix up among them.

  25. Josef says:

    I’m also a proud Hungarian, and I’ll be happy to see new inhabitants in Hungary. Our Homeland was every time in his history open for new citizens, who WANTED / WANTS TO WORK in Hungary for the New Homeland.
    We, Hungarians like the hard working nations, like yours nation.

    Welcome soon in Hungary, begin to learn our beautiful but very special language:
    Viszontlátásra Magyarországon! – See you soon in Hungary ! – TOTSIENS EN HONGARYE !

  26. Gabriel says:

    Greetings from Hungary!

    I have went through the comments, and found some questions.
    I will try to answer them.
    Most of them were about the opportunities for certain professions:
    – building/construction industry: it will spin up in the forthcoming 3-4 years, thanks to the new family supporting system.
    – qualified electricians: definitely there are plenty of jobs, we need people with this qualification.
    – teacher: teachers status is not so good at the moment. BUT! someone who speaks a foreign language (English/German) at a good level, can easily have a job. (not just as a teacher).
    – IT industry/engineers: yes, we have lot of open positions. Most of the German automobile parts (Hardware/Software) are produced in Hungary.
    – foresters: I am not familiar with this, but as very high percentage of the people are heating with wood, I think there is a need.
    – farming: we have several abandoned farms in Alföld (search for it on google)
    +1: I read someone to point out being to old for a move: I can give you some positive examples. On the western side of the country there are already villages which are owned/lived by Dutch, German, Austrian pensioners. What is an extra (most pensioners like it very much), we have plenty of thermal bathes.

    Hope I could help.

  27. Cecília says:

    Hi,

    I read stories of attacks against white farmers in South Africa and also saw terrible pictures of entire families, women, children massacred in their homes a couple of years ago (when there was the football worldcup, it was 6 years ago, my husband is telling me now) and I have felt pity for you ever since.If there is one country in the world I would never want to enter that is RSA: I’m convinced that you ARE refugees and I would welcome you in Hungary. We are a small and relatively poor country, not much chance to get employed and even if employed, salaries low. But it’s a SAFE PLACE and maybe you could teach us how we can defend ourselves from non desired invaders! You are not far from our culture, even though I am catholic, a significant part of our country is reformed and we have such a sweet, tiny reformed churches all over the country, especially in Transylvania (which is now part of Romania), you would love them! I hope that our politicians will decide in favour of welcoming you – and with that we can also fulfill our part of the EU migration quota (Ha-ha!)

    • Collin says:

      Hi Tibor, I just want to voice my appreciation to Hungary and its citizens for being willing to look at the plight of South Africans. We are two South Africans living and working in Tbilisi and would love the opportunity to settle in Hungary. Although we are not farmers, we would prefer to buy a small property in the Hungarian countryside. But, as I understand, the property laws are quite strict as far as foreigners are concerned. I would really appreciate it if you could direct me to a reliable site where I could find out more about available rural properties. Many thanks for your help! Kind regards.

  30. Peter says:

    Hy I am a Hungarian and would like to stress that we welcome white hard working honest protestant people,but!
    You have to understand that pay rate here is the fraction of what you get in western europe, cca 500euros. And for Boer farmers,this is europe, there are no big vacant farmlands here, certanly not as big as you used to in africa.The agriculture sector is developed and the good lands are being cultivated. Maybe you can get some small farm , but that is not enough to make a living.The village population is shrinking that is true, because the absence of jobs.Everybody is moving to western europe.And I didnt mentioned the gypsies who are similar to the negroes and their numbers are increasing. So it is not as easy as it looks.

  31. Viki Fourie says:

    • Hani says:

      Just curious, cannot you return to Macedonia?

      Your country is highly regarded right now as they try to stop the illegals.

  32. Roland Varga says:

    Hello Everyone,

    I am a Hungarian attorney, currently inactive with the Budapest Bar Chamber for I live in Taiwan, study Chinese here and planning to open a company and apply for a resident visa. There are a lot of enthusiastic comments, and I more or less understand the difficult position of the Boer community in SA, but let us see the cruel facts.

    Hungary has a business immigration program, I do not remember correctly the details because the conditions are changed way too often, but if I am right buying a 300.000 EUR government bond (and paying a 50-70.000 EUR commission fee charged by the authorized agent) should grant a 5 year resident visa for one family (husband, wife, children under the age of 18). This bond matures after 5 years but interest is basically not payed after the bond. Several other EU country has similar programs, possibly some Baltic states might have even more favorable conditions. In any case a person who decides to invest in such bonds should be really careful, I do not see guaranties that the agent (despite it is a government bond upon becoming due the sum of the bond should be payed back by the agent) would be solvent, it is not clear what happens after 5 years with the resident status, etc.

    Apart from this business immigration program people do immigrate by getting a job or opening their own company. If one is a skilled IT expert I do not see many reasons to move to Hungary, one should head towards Holland, Great Britain, etc. In Western or Northern Europe it is easier to get a good paying English language job, I think getting a working permit might also be smoother than in Hungary. My country might be more interesting if one plans to open a company. Obviously the standards are lower for getting a residence permit based on the dividend payed by your company in Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, the former Eastern Bloc countries, than in the UK for example. Now how much money has to be invested, what gross sales, profit, dividend criteria has to be met, how much tax has to be payed, how many employees are needed, these are the details you need to know and compare before making a decision. As far as I know, these details are not transparently set by law in Hungary, it is the immigration agency that sets some detailed standards (the criteria set by the law is more like “adequate income” for living). I am not an immigration lawyer, but knowing how the Hungarian government bodies operate (generally I do not have a good opinion about their attitude and efficacy) I definitely suggest that you send your representatives with a clear mandate to Hungary: 1) the local authorities are not interesting, they cannot issue a resident visa 2) it is not that interesting what the Hungarian government says (declaration of good will, bullshitting) but what kind of decrees it enacts (I am sorry to say but I doubt that they would enact anything in your case) 3) it is absolutely important on the other hand, to obtain the exact and detailed criteria of a resident visa if and when one opens a company (sales revenue, profit criteria, dividend criteria, how many people can obtain a resident visa if these criteria are met). You should also get info on the general costs of living, company operational costs, taxes, etc. Now I am not sure that it is the smartest thing to send people over to obtain these info in person, an immigration lawyer might answer these question probably more efficiently and cheaply. It is also possible, that neighboring Slovakia’s condition are more favorable, so I definitely suggest to obtain data on several countries. After the most prospective candidate has been found trips in person are obviously important. In my opinion, Hungary might be attractive because of the cheap labor and agricultural heritage and potential. Good luck for your project!

  33. Emma says:

    Guys have you ever thought of putting up an emigration forum or better a kind of “Immigration to Middle / Eastern Europe” web forum or community, where there would be threads for each profession? Then people could better help each other give information or search for information.
    Also housing topic, relocation topic, paperwork, or a job offer topic when a company wants to give a job to one of you etc.
    It is just an idea as I am no official authority of Hungary or of any other Eastern European country but as comments here become more and more, the idea just occurred to me….

  34. Adam K. says:

    Welcome Boers, Hungary needs You ! I can help you to seek for houses and flats, no matter what the government or anyone says. White people must be unite.

  35. Hani says:

    I simply love South Africa, have been in Durban, Cape Town and many other cities. I respect South Africans, and sorry to see what is happening with the farmers who produce a substantial proportion of SA’s GDP.

    We need people in Hungary who can add values to our country, and you would be perfect for that.

    There are many houses on sale, especially in the rural (in the range of 300k-600k ZAR), which might not be perfect for you, but it is a good start!

    Also, there are many single men and women :-))))))

    However, we do not trust our politicians, and I am sad to say, but should not have high hopes for them either.

    Just an idea: why don’t you look for Hungarians using the social media, and ask them how the life is in Hungary. There are many who speak excellent English (and many of them might work already in the UK!)

    I wholeheartedly wish you the best!

      S.g. Herr Meyer,

      Please bring your wonderful qualifications, your family, and your astonishingly Austrian sounding name over to Austria with you :-). Even if you decide you don’t like it here, having permanent Austrian residency would probably make re-emigrating to EE later a piece of cake. Learning German is a huge advantage too.

      Here is the immigration system (transparent, efficient, and entirely in English):

      http://www.migration.gv.at/en/service-and-links/points-calculator.html

      All you need to do to use it is for one member of your family to find a job via an Austrian jobsite, and fulfil the points requirement. You should have no trouble – just google it.

  37. Jan Muller says:

    Hi

    I am a South African currently living and working in the UAE. I have Master Qualifications in both Adult Education and Renewable Energy. and experience in Electrical Engineering. Would there be opportunities to open a business for electrical supply and maintenance and the instillation of Renewable Energy Systems? I am working under contract currently and is seriously looking at emigration opportunities in a safe country to which I can also relocate my family.

    Kind Regards

    Jan Muller

    This is really good news. I hope more Afrikaaners move to Hungary but I would love for them to move to America too.

  39. Christine says:

    Hi I am a qualified South African teacher in the foundation phase. I am currently working in the UAE. Would it be possible for me to get a job in Budapest?

  40. Dian says:

    I am BulgarIan national living in Bulgaria. This is what I have to say:

    Come here or in other EU country in Eastern Europe. You will be respected and liked by everybody, living in a society which is not multicultural, at least not in the way the multiculturalism exists in the UK for example.

    For job seekers in Bulgaria, have a look at jobs.bg

    You coud also have your own business here, some banks have their online banking system translated in English, the corporate tax here is 10%, the divident tax is 5 %. You could easily find an English speaking accountant.

    You could travel easily and without significant expenses to the more developed EU countries.

    When a crime is reported in the newspapapers, the whole country is talking about it for several months.

    Most of the Bulgarians are very kind and friendly people.

    The climate here is excellent – not very hot or very cold.

    • Willem de Jager says:

      Hi Dian, thanks for the info. I have been reading a lot about Hungary and also Bulgaria and you confirm everything that I have read. It sounds promising, thanks! Willem.

  41. Jullian says:

    I’m nearly qualified in electrical engineering (diploma), I just require inservice training. I am also interested in this initiative. Our country has been in great turmoil as of late, racially motivated violence and hatred at an all time high. How do I go about relocating, any help would be appreciated.

  42. frik says:

    Good day i am a farmer, worked hard and got really far with my business but then i got a land claim and had to sell my property to the black claimant.
    That was 7 years ago.
    At this stage i am willing to relocate but doesnt have a lot of money.
    Is there anny hope for me there to farm again?

  43. Willem de Jager says:

    Are you serious? I have been looking at Hungary for ages! I have great hopes for Hungary, the Visegrad V4 and Central Europe in general. Not a farmer but definitely a Magyar enthusiast and English teacher. I have been wondering – if I bring a montly passive income equal to the average Hungarian wage into the country, without the need to work, would they let me stay? Of course I could also teach should there be a demand. Who can I contact to sign up?

  45. Paul Kovacs says:

    Hi my name is Paul Gyula Kovacs.my father came from Hungary to South Africa more than 50 years ago .I am interested to find out if I can claim citizenship.the only problem I have noted about relocating is the language.it is very difficult to comunicate.

  46. Anthony Hestermann says:

    I see a LOT of heavily qualified people here,is there any chance for a older couple
    (55yrs) ,I’ve been a coded welder for 30+ years(not tested in the last 10yrs),but with no jobs available for white people in this country anymore,,,I have been working and supporting my family by working on m/cycles and survivig for the last 5yrs,and although not officially qualified,, I’m good at it.I would like to know if there is a chance for ordinary hard working people like us to immigrate.
    Regards
    Anthony

    • MH says:

      Hi Anthony,
      If I may offer some clarification: in most Western European visa systems, Welders are not considered ‘less qualified’, as it is often a shortage occupation and very sought-after. I’m sure your age would be a disadvantage, but even so you’d have good chances for an employment visa.

  47. Johan says:

    This is really great news. im in IT, and would love to make the move over.

  48. gerrit says:

    Hi. I am in logistics and my wife is a financial manager/bookkeeper. What is the opportunities in these fields in Hungary. Our lives is worth nothing in south africa as whites.

  49. Konrad says:

    White South Africans are more than welcome in Poland. Due to our emigration to WE we are in need of many professionals, especially: Doctors.

    Poland is a lovely country with many opportunities for everyone who is not scared of our hard language. White emigration is perceived really good in Poland and many people are willing to help you during your first years.

  50. MH says:

    In case anyone is looking for a second-best option to Eastern Europe, please consider Austria. Still majority-white, especially in the countryside, and going in the right direction. Even if you would prefer to move elsewhere in Europe later, it’s definitely a foot in the door. From personal experience, every Eastern European country respects people with Austrian residency and/or German language skills.

    Here is the immigration system’s website. It’s transparent and easy to use, and can be completed entirely in B1-Level English.

    http://www.migration.gv.at/en/service-and-links/points-calculator.html

    All you need to complete the process is for one member of your family to obtain a suitable job offer in Austria, which should be easy to get via an Austrian employment website. Just google it.
