Charity organizations active in helping Ukrainian refugees say that authorities should expect a new wave soon. The influx slowed down in the recent weeks though still ten thousand people arrive each day in Hungary, the public media said.
MTI reported that fully 5,236 people crossed into Hungary directly from Ukraine on Friday, while another 4,674 from Ukraine crossed from Romania, the national police headquarters told MTI on Saturday.
Police issued temporary residence permits valid for thirty days to 972 people,
the police website said on Friday. Holders of such permits must contact a local immigration office near their place of residence within thirty days to apply for permanent documents, it added.
Budapest police received 613 refugees, 267 children among them, by train, according to the municipal police website. Refugees arriving on special train services at Kobanya felso railway station, in eastern Budapest, were
taken by bus to the BOK sports and events centre serving as a humanitarian transit point.
The authorities transported 49 people, including 22 children, to accommodation in the capital and outlying areas.
