The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Budapest, located at Rómer Floris utca 57, a prime area of the second district, was opened in 1992 after twenty-eight years of the establishment of Diplomatic relations between Nigeria and Hungary.

The history of diplomatic relations between Nigeria and Hungary goes back to 1964 with Hungary having diplomatic presence in Nigeria since that period. The interests of Nigeria were overseen, on concurrent accreditation, initially from Warsaw, Poland, and then subsequently from Belgrade, Yugoslavia, before effective presence in Budapest in 1992. The Embassy presently has Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina as its countries of concurrent accreditation.

The Mission provides Consular, Immigration and other services to Nigerians and other nationals. The Mission is also engaged in representational duties on behalf of the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on political, economic, social,  educational, humanitarian, cultural and other global issues including promoting trade ties and supporting new avenues for economic partnership between Nigeria and Hungary and other countries of concurrent accreditation.

The Embassy is currently headed by Ambassador (Dr) Ajayi Eniola Olaitan who arrived Hungary on 23rd October, 2017 and presented her Letter of Credence on 1st December, 2017. Ambassador Ajayi presented her Letter of Credence in Bosnia and Herzegovina on 21st February,  2018.  On 9th May, 2018, Ambassador Ajayi presented her Letter of Credence to the Croatian President, H.E. Ms. Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic at the President's Office. Ambassador Ajayi offically became Nigeria's Ambassador to Serbia on 25th June 2019 after presenting her Letter of Credence to the Serbian President, H.E. Mr. Aleksandar Vucic.
