Procedures regarding the rules of entering Hungary and special medical examination

We would like to inform you about the latest procedures on the rules of entering Hungary and the special medical examinations for non-Hungarian students and higher education staff.

Based on the current level of infection in other countries, the National Chief Medical Officer published a decision listing the countries and their administrative regions categorized as „yellow” and „red”. Depending on the categories, foreign students must undergo medical examinations after entering Hungary.

The Hungarian higher education institution shall issue a certificate to a foreign student for entry to Hungary. The identification of the student on the basis of their non-personal data will be recorded in a central unified electronic interface set up for inspection by the National Police Headquarters.

The student must contact the higher education institution of which they are a student, and must arrive at the accommodation specified in the certificate within 24 hours after entering the country.

The lecturers, researchers and other staff members employed in higher education can enter the country with an invitation letter issued by the Ministry of Innovation and Technology as per the request of the relevant higher education institution.

Please, look through the document and its attachment for the detailed measures.
