National Consultation on the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions coming soon! Here are the key topics

Several questions related to the reopening of the country will be part of an online national consultation that will kick off in the coming days.


Taking to the Hungarian Government’s official Facebook page to announce some of the main topics of Hungary’s latest national consultation on the lifting of restrictions, State Secretary Csaba Dömötör said in a video that the question of whether restrictions should be lifted gradually or only at the end of the pandemic will take center stage.

Another topic, according to Dömötör, will be related to “immunity passports,” that is, if those who are already protected against the coronavirus should be exempted from certain restrictions.

“One question will deal with the 8 p.m. curfew,” State Secretary Dömötör also revealed, adding that a couple of questions in the survey will focus on the reopening of restaurants, hotels and sports facilities. “Clearly, this is highly dependent on the epidemiological situation, but it is important to see how many people would support the reopening, alongside certain security regulations, of course,” the state secretary said.

“And finally,” he said, “one question will ask: Would you agree if, until the end of the pandemic, only foreigners who have been vaccinated or possess an immunity passport would be permitted to enter Hungary?”

The national consultation, now solely in an online format, will begin in a few days on vakcinainfo.gov.hu, the same website where Hungarian citizens can register to get vaccinated.
