AboutHungary.hu notes that exceptions include business trips for nationals of certain countries, namely Poland, Czech Republic, South Korea, Japan, Slovakia, Germany and Austria.
Other exceptions noted are the entry of seasonal agricultural workers from neighboring countries; and foreign citizens to whom the Deputy Police Chief has issued a license.
Hungarians who wish to return to Hungary from abroad must undergo a medical examination, and then compulsory home quarantine for 14 days - however they are exempt from home quarantine if they arrive back from a business trip from Poland, the Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia, Austria, South Korea or Japan.
The conditions for receiving family support will be eased for Hungarians moving back from abroad, an official of the human resources ministry said.
Returnees will be expected to present proof of entitlement to Hungarian social security dating back 90 days instead of 180 days, state secretary in charge of family and youth affairs Katalin Novak told public news channel M1.
In the past, Hungarians returning home from the UK had difficulty proving their British national insurance status, so a fairer procedure will be set up, she added.
Conditions will also be eased for expectant mothers applying for government benefits and for families applying for a reduction in their mortgage payments.
