Can You Travel To Hungary?

Those who are not exempted to travel restrictions may apply for a special entry permit to the Hungarian Police.
You must gain permission in advance of travelling. You will need to show that you are travelling to Hungary for:

  • court proceedings
  • business activities justified by central government, demonstrated with a letter of invitation issued by an administrative body, an independent regulatory body or an autonomous public administration body
  • accessing healthcare with a referral
  • studying or taking an exam, with certification from an education institution
  • travelling to the point of departure for cargo-related transit
  • participation in family events, eg marriage, baptism, funeral
  • care of a relative
  • participation in a sporting, cultural or church event of major international importance
  • any other justifiable reason

Unless in possession of a Hungary-issued Immunity Certificate, most people entering Hungary must agree to enter mandatory quarantine. If you have a suitable device, you must download software for police to monitor your quarantine.

Quarantine may be shortened if the passenger is able to present two negative COVID‑19 PCR test results. The tests must be taken at local designated laboratories with a 48‑hour period between the two tests.

Travellers entering Hungary for business purposes, and representatives of foreign companies with a stake in Hungary (i.e. joint venture) may enter the country without restrictions. On entry, unless in possession of a Hungary-issued Immunity Certificate, you will need to show proof of an essential business requirement for entering Hungary, e.g. an official letter from your company that includes contact details for verification purposes, or an invitation to a business event. You can provide this on paper or electronically.

Foreign ticket holders attending 30 July - 1 August, Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix and 21-22 August FIA World Touring Car Cup are only required to present a negative PCR test result, taken within 72 hours prior to arrival.

Foreign nationals attending these events are also granted the same rights at hotels, restaurants and entertainment venues as holders of Immunity Certificates by presenting their event tickets.

Local Measures

  • Curfews are no longer in place.
  • Shops and service providers are now open as normal.
  • There is no longer any requirement to produce an Immunity Certificate to enter restaurants, hotels and leisure facilities and attend cultural events with booked seating.
  • Social distancing rules are no longer in force.
  • For sporting, dance and other indoor events, as well as outdoor events with more than 500 people attendance, limits remain in force and entry is only allowed to holders of Immunity Certificatees.
  • Family and private gatherings are allowed up to 100 people.

Local authorities have some powers to introduce additional restrictions, so follow local instructions.

The full details are set out on the Hungarian government website.

Travelling To Hungary FAQs

Advice and answers from the Corona Test Centre Team

What do the three colours of the UK’s ‘Traffic Light System’ for travel mean?

  • Red: You must pay for a 10-day stay in a managed quarantine hotel, as well as taking a pre-departure test (a Fit to Fly test) and two PCR tests upon return to the UK (Day 2 & Day 8).
  • Amber: You will need to quarantine for 10 days, as well as taking a pre-departure test (a Fit to Fly test), and two PCR tests on return to the UK (Day 2 & Day 8). When you return to the UK,  you can take a test on Day 5 (Test to Release) to leave quarantine early.
  • Green: You will not need to quarantine on return, but you must take a pre-departure test (a Fit to Fly test), and a PCR test on return to the UK on Day 2.


How will the government decide which countries go on the green, amber or red lists?

Countries are assigned to the three lists, based on a range of Covid-19 health metrics, which include figures on population vaccination, infection rates and prevalence of variants. The different traffic light colours indicate the risk in each destination and the associated tests and quarantine periods required. Lists are reassessed every three weeks, to account for changes in each country’s COVID-19 situation.

Will I need a PCR Fit to Fly Certificate to travel to

Hungary

Will I need an Antigen Fit to Fly Certificate to travel to

?

Testing is not required to enter Hungary. However, to ensure that you and the people you meet when travelling are safe, we always recommend taking a PCR or Antigen test before travel.

Will I need a Day 2 test or Day 2 and 8 when I return to the UK?

Hungaryis currently on the amber list, this means that you will need a Day 2 PCR test and a Day 8 PCR test. You will need to buy this before you travel to the UK and use the reference code on your passenger location form. You will need to quarantine on arrival for 10 days. If you would like the opportunity to leave quarantine early, you can also book a Test to Release test. Please note that the travel restrictions are subject to change at very short notice.

I’m vaccinated, what tests do I need?

Hungary is currently on the amber list, this means that you will need a Day 2 PCR test and a Day 8 PCR test. However, because you have both vaccinations, you can return to the UK and only take a Day 2 PCR test. You will need to buy this before you travel to the UK and use the reference code on your passenger location form. You will not need to quarantine on arrival for 10 days (unless you test positive). Please note that the travel restrictions are subject to change at very short notice.

Can I enter

Hungary

with a double vaccination certificate?

Testing is not required to enter Hungary. However, to ensure that you and the people you meet when travelling are safe, we always recommend taking a PCR or Antigen test before travel.

What happens if I have visited another country before flying back to the UK from

Hungary

?

The government advice for passengers travelling from Hungary is that if you have visited another country in the 10 days before you arrive in the UK that is a higher risk than Hungary, you must follow the travel guidance for the highest risk country you visited.

What else will I need to return to the UK?

For all countries, including Hungary, you will need to take an Antigen Fit to Fly test before departing for the UK. This can be bought at Corona Test Centre’s to take with you on your travels.
