To issue a pass ID, a good-quality, unused ID photo is required with an empty background, taken within one year, with a size not exceeding 3.5 ×4.5 cm. A printer and photo paper can also be used, but it is not acceptable if the photo shows additional objects or people. If the holder’s look has significantly changed, the replacement of the pass ID is highly advisable. A new pass ID must be issued in case the ID has been damaged to such an extent that the holder is no longer recognisable or if validity cannot be clearly determined. Replacement is subject to a handling fee.

In accordance with the official certificate on permanent or temporary residence in Budapest, those passengers are entitled to the Pass ID-parents with small children and to the pass for parents with small children who receive child home care allowances (GYES, GYET, GYED or CSED – previously known as TGYÁS). In order to issue the pass ID and extend its validity date, a photo ID needs to be presented.

In case a new pass ID is issued, the validity period is calculated from the day of issuance, while in case the validity period of the existing pass ID is extended, the validity period has to be calculated from the day of extension. The validity period is the nearest date from among the following three deadlines: the validity period of the Pass ID – parents with small children

  • can be a maximum of 6 months
  • can extend to the expected deadline of allowance disbursement
  • can last until the validity period indicated under the registration of address, in case the address in Budapest is indicated as temporary residence with a validity period

The expected deadline of allowance disbursement has to be defined from the certificate on the payment of GYES, GYET, GYED, or CSED (in case it does not indicate the expected deadline), as follows:

  • Basically, GYES is paid up to the day when the child turns three. Upon defining the allowance, such a concrete date cannot be fixed until when the allowance is paid. The deadline for entitlement to the pass ID – parents with small children has to be defined in accordance with the child’s birthday indicated in the resolution of the right to child care allowance. By adding three years to and deducting one day from the birthday, the latest date of validity of the certificate can be defined. For instance, this date is 19 April 2009 in case of a child who was born on 20 April 2006.
  • In case of twins, entitlement can be defined until the end of the year when children reach compulsory schooling age. For instance, if children reach compulsory schooling age in 2009, the expiry date of entitlement is 31 December 2009. (Children can reach the development phase necessary for schooling at the earliest in the calendar year in which they turn six (6) by 31 May, and at the latest in the calendar year when they turn eight by 31 August.)
  • In case of a permanently ill or severely disabled child, parents are entitled to receive GYES until the year when the child turns 10. If the official resolution of the right to child care allowance indicates illness or disability, this deadline is applicable.
  • Entitlement to GYET can be defined in case of three or more minor children and the allowance can be received from the day when the youngest child turns three until the day when s/he turns eight.
  • Parents are entitled to receive GYED until the day when the child turns 2.
  • Parents are entitled to receive CSED for the period of maternity leave; for 168 days.

Certificates issued by the disbursement agency generally indicate the expected deadline of payment, thus in case they are presented instead of the resolution of the right to child care allowance, the date indicated in the Certificates issued by the disbursement agency is applicable. In case passengers are entitled to this pass but their IDs have expired, those can be extended but a certificate of entitlement has to be issued and renewed.

The following qualify as residential address in Budapest:

  • Permanent residence in Budapest
  • Temporary residence in Budapest
  • Under the address only “Budapest” or also the number of a Budapest district is indicated (e.g. in case of residents with a small child in a mother’s home) without a specific street number.
