Entry rules

Due to the new regulations put into effect, the processes regarding entering the country, ordering of quarantine and requesting exemption from quarantine have changed as follows:

  • after crossing the border, the police will issue a decree of quarantine order
  • the student is obligated to travel to the address indicated in the decree
  • students will be able to apply for release from the quarantine for the purpose of taking PCR tests on the below website, only after receiving the decree. In the request, the student must refer to the decree number. (This request CAN NOT be submitted before entering the country) https://ugyintezes.police.hu/web/guest/uj-ugy-inditasa/ (menu navigation: Járványügyi intézkedésekkel kapcsolatos beadványok > PCR teszt időpontjáról tájékoztatás megküldése > COVID-06)
  • law enforcement officials will electronically confirm your request within 24 hours (the student is not allowed to leave their location of quarantine until that or they will be fined if found absent during inspection). We suggest that you request your first PCR test date to be the day after your entry, taking into account expiry of the 24 hour time frame.
  • After obtaining 2 negative PCR tests, students will be able to request exemption from the quarantine on the previously mentioned website. (menu navigation: Járványügyi intézkedésekkel kapcsolatos beadványok > Határátlépéshez kapcsolódó PCR negatív tesztek
    eredményéről tájékoztatás megküldése > COVID-08) The decree of quarantine exemption will be sent by the police directly to the student, in a digital format.
  • The main change from the previous process is that the student can now individually start and conduct the process directly with the police, after entering the country. As such, the student no longer has obligations to provide personal information to the registrar or the Government Office.

  • In case infection is suspected based on the medical examination, the student will be placed in a quarantine or official house quarantine designated by the epidemiological authority for 10 days. In this case the epidemiology authority decides the concrete place of the quarantine.
  • In case no infection is suspected based on the medical examination, the student will be placed in a quarantine for 10 days in their residential address, or if there is no such address in official house quarantine designated by the epidemiological authority.
