Do I need to be vaccinated? Do I need to take a PCR test? Do I have to go to quarantine? Here is everything you need to know about travelling to Hungary this summer.
After reaching the magic number of 5,5 million administered coronavirus vaccines, Hungary decided to ditch the masks in public places. The country is more than ready to welcome tourists this summer season by being the “safest green zone country” in the region.
It means that everything is given for you to spend some time in the Hungarian capital or on the beach at one of Hungary’s beautiful lakes.
444.hu collected all necessary details that you should consider before travelling to Hungary.
Since June 23,
there are no more restrictions or obligatory quarantine times for anyone travelling on the motorway from Austria, Slovakia, Romania, Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia.
The details below are in effect if you would travel from Ukraine or by plane.
Hungarian citizens and their families without Hungarian citizenship
Hungarian citizens and their legitimate family members who do not possess Hungarian documentation, fall under the same category.
These family members are:
In the case of a civil partnership, a verifying document authenticated by a notary is necessary. In all the other cases, a copy of the birth certificate confirming the kinship needs to be presented at the border.
If the travelling Hungarian citizen or his family member have received the vaccine, the only question left is where he received it and with which vaccine he was inoculated.
If someone was vaccinated in Hungary, only two documents need to be presented: the immunity certificate and a travelling document.
In case someone was vaccinated abroad, and he is entitled to the EU vaccine certificate, he, as well can enter the country without any restrictions.
It means that in both cases, there is no need for quarantine.
If someone is not entitled to an EU vaccine certificate, he can still enter Hungary, however, only with the goal to acquire the Hungarian immunity certificate for the vaccine he had received.
In this case, the passenger has two options. He is either obligated, before travelling, to register online for obtaining the certificate, or he needs to present himself at a Government Window (Kormányablak) no later than 48 hours after entering the country. If this does not happen, quarantine is in effect.
The list of the accepted vaccines is the following:
Moreover, the country in which he had received the vaccine, needs to be included on the following list:
Any person under the age of 18 is allowed to travel without restrictions if he is accompanied by an adult who complies with these criteria.

You either spend ten days in quarantine, or you have three options to avoid it:
All foreign citizens can enter Hungary without restrictions if they arrive on business or have the EU immunity certificate.
