The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Hungary (Hungarian: Magyarország külügyminisztere) is a member of the Hungarian cabinet and the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The current foreign minister is János Martonyi.

This position was called Minister besides the King between 1848 and 1918, except in 1849 when Hungary declared its independence from Austria and the Habsburg Monarchy. During the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy (1867–1918) the two countries also had a joint Minister of Foreign Affairs.
