Reentry To Hungary Made Easier For Expats With Residency Permits
According to an announcement by the National Police Headquarters, a government decree on eased travel restrictions during the epidemiological preparedness period entered into force last Saturday, writes

According to this, "a non-Hungarian citizen from abroad who has a residence permit valid for the period of stay exceeding 90 days in Hungary may enter the territory of Hungary without submitting a written application for permission to enter, if he presents the residence permit issued to him".

It was emphasized that foreigners with a residence permit are also obliged to undergo a health check at the state border upon entering Hungary.

If coronavirus is suspected during that inspection, the epidemiological authority shall designate a quarantine site located at a health institution designated for that purpose.

A call center set up for advice on the coronavirus can be reached on +36-80-277-455 and +36-80-277-456 or by email
