Travelling from Hungary or returning to Hungary

Hungarian citizens returning from abroad are obliged to stay in home quarantine for 10 days from the date of entry. Passengers returning home may be exempted from quarantine if they provide a certificate containing the negative results of two SARS-CoV-2 molecular tests performed in Hungary at two different times, with at least 48 hours between them. The first of the two tests may also be performed in one of the Schengen countries, the United States of America or Canada.
Hungarian citizens may return home from abroad without restrictions if the reason for the trip was a business or economic activity which the Hungarian citizen is able to credibly attest, upon return to Hungary.

The Hungarian Consular Service provides Travel advice per Country (in Hungarian).
