Hungarian Foreign Minister László Szijjártó shared on Facebook how border crossing rules are changing for Hungary. Since Wednesday midnight (06.17.), EU citizens and citizens of Serbia, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Iceland can enter the country without mandatory quarantine.
Indexreports that both Hungarian citizens and their non-Hungarian relatives coming home from the above-mentioned countries no longer have to stay in self-quarantine. From now on, people from most European Economy Area (EEA) countries are also free from any restrictions.
If you are not a citizen of the European Union or of Serbia, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Norway, or Iceland (or if you are a Hungarian coming home from somewhere other than these countries), you can still enter the country if you obtain a special permit, which can be requested in the following cases:
to attend court or other official proceedings
to attend official business (verified by the local or state government)
to access healthcare services
to attend an exam or if you have other educational obligations (verified by the educational institution)
to carry out transportation services (verified by the employer)
to attend family affairs (weddings, funerals, etc.)
to care for a relative
to attend an international sporting, cultural, or religious event
if one has any other legitimate reason for entering the country.
If you have a permit, in all cases, you are obligated to attend a health examination upon arrival. If you show no coronavirus symptoms, you may enter Hungary, but you still need to quarantine yourself for 14 days. In the case that you do show any coronavirus symptoms, you will be banned from entering the country.
