The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Budapest, located at Virányos út 4/a, a prime area of the twelfth 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.) Modupe Enitan Irele who arrived Hungary on the 3rd of May, 2021 and presented her Letter of Credence to the Hungarian President, János Áder on the 7th of July, 2021. On Monday, 6th September, 2021, Ambassador Modupe Irele presented her Letter of Credence to the President of the Republic of Serbia, H.E. Aleksandar Vucic at the Serbia Hall of the Palace of Serbia.
