Please be informed that due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Hungarian government has issued a decree, ruling that from September 1, all persons entitled to enter the territory of Hungary must undergo a 14 day quarantine. They may be exempted from such quarantine if they attest with a document containing the results of two SARS-CoV-2 tests performed in Hungary at two different times with at least 48 hours between them that the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus was not detected in their body at the time of the tests. Negative tests performed in other countries do not provide exemption from quarantine in Hungary.
