Hungarians are now able to travel to Austria with no coronavirus-related restrictions.
Lieutenant Colonel Robert Kiss said Austria has “changed Hungary’s safety risk assessment to positive”, allowing Hungarians to travel to Austria. When Hungarians return they will have to self-quarantine for 10 days or until they produce two negative PCR tests taken two days apart.
According to WHO, Hungary is in the middle of the European average in terms of both the number of infected and the number of deaths, said Cecília Müller.
Currently, all foreigners without a residence permit are banned from entering Hungary, effective September 1, with some exceptions. A 10-day quarantine is currently required for all international arrivals from “red” or “yellow” countries.
Excluded, are Czech, Polish and Slovak citizens who can travel to Hungary on more favorable terms until November 1 if they have a negative PCR test, and have booked accommodation in Hungary for at least one night in October before the legislation enters into force.
