Pandemic in decline throughout the country and epidemiological restrictions lifted.

 

From 7 March, Hungary phased out almost all coronavirus-related restrictive measures. In relation to tourism this means returning to pre-pandemic entry rules, unrestricted access to and use of accommodations and attractions, even without mandatory use of masks.

 

In practice, the lifting of the epidemiological entry restrictions and special rules to access certain services and events means that from Monday, 7 March 2022, travellers can enter Hungary without the need for any vaccination or immunity certificate or any type of tests. Vaccination certificate is no longer required to access indoor congresses or conferences, accommodations, spas, sporting or cultural events, music- and dance festivals, or outdoor events of any type.

 

The government decree, which has now been repealed, introduced the border closure and temporarily reinstated border controls from the beginning of September 2020. Hungary's land and water borders have been open without restriction since June 2021 to those entering from Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Slovakia, later extended to Ukraine, but until now air arrivals were subject to restrictions (being subject to a valid immunity certificate or PCR test).

 

The rules on the issuance and validity of the vaccination certificates will remain unchanged, as they are designed in line with the EU rules on the Covid ‘Green’ card, and EU countries will continue to decide whether to make entry into the country subject to it.
