From Monday morning, citizens of Hungary and Serbia will be allowed to travel between the two countries without undergoing a mandatory quarantine upon entry.

Following talks with Jadranka Joksimović, Serbia’s European Integration minister, and István Pásztor, the head of the Alliance of Vojvodina Hungarians (VMSZ) at the Röszke border, in southern Hungary, Péter Szijjártó said reopening the borders will enable families and communities to reconnect. Economic ties will also gain new momentum, he added.

Minister Szijjártó said thanks to timely and strict restrictions, central European countries have managed to control the spread of the coronavirus epidemic. Reducing passenger traffic across borders was one of those measures, he said.
