COVID UPDATE - entry restrictions to Hungary
Posted on: August 23, 2021

The restrictions for entering Hungary are continuously adjusted to address the health risks, which are associated with the fluctuating developments of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As of 7 March 2022, the Hungarian government has abolished all restrictions on entry to Hungary. All air travelers can enter Hungary without a vaccination certificate, a certificate of recovery or a negative PCR test. At the airport, only the normal non-Schengen border controls are carried out. All epidemiological controls have been lifted. Accordingly, passengers arriving from Schengen countries can enter the country unimpeded, without any documentary checks, while passengers arriving from non-Schengen countries are only subject to controls regarding the conditions of entry. The Airport Police Directorate has also reactivated the automatic passport gates, which allow for much faster passage to and from the country.
