This means that, after 24 months, the state of affairs before the coronavirus pandemic has been restored, meaning that all air travelers can enter Hungary, without a vaccination certificate, a certificate of recovery or a negative PCR test.
At the airport, only the normal non-Schengen border controls are carried out; all epidemiological controls have been lifted.
Accordingly, passengers arriving from Schengen countries can enter the country unimpeded, without any documentary checks, while passengers arriving from non-Schengen countries are only subject to controls regarding the conditions of entry.
The Airport Police Directorate has also reactivated the automatic passport gates, which allow for much faster passage to and from the country.
At the same time, the mandatory wearing of face masks in the passenger areas of Ferenc Liszt International Airport has also been abolished, but continuous hand disinfection and social distancing are still recommended.
Despite the relaxations, Budapest Airport continues to ask passengers to choose online check-in and self-service baggage drop-off for all airlines offering these services.
The majority of airlines still require passengers to wear face masks on board, so it is advisable for passengers to have a face mask with them.
