ENTERING HUNGARY UNDER COVID-19


2021.07.12. 

Dear Students,

Recently, the government has officially lifted the restrictions for most of the regulations as the number of people of vaccinated people has surpassed 5.5 million. Masks are only obligatory in medical institutions. Public places, public transports, shops, restaurants, etc., do not require their guests to enter the premises with a mask or an immunity card. 

The regulations for students who would like to enter Hungary will depend on the bilateral agreements that the government and the other countries have agreed on. Citizens from countries: Austria, Croatia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia can travel without proof of anti-body or vaccination. More details can be found on the National Police Headquarter's website. All students must prepare their official papers, valid ID or passport, and the acceptance letter/ invitation letter from KJU in advance, as the customs will ask for them. 

Please check your embassy/ consultants' website for all questions regarding visa applications, entering Hungary, required documents, etc.

We are trying our best to provide on-campus classes for all the students starting from September. However, all will be based on the government's updates. 

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at: international@kodolanyi.hu

Dear Students,

After 3 weeks of online learning, the KJU management analyzed the situation and has found that the spread of the epidemic has not slowed down, the pandemic situation is still uncertain in Hungary, the entry into the country is difficult and is allowed in various phases. Under these circumstances, the possibility of classroom (face-to-face) education cannot be fully secured for everyone. For this reason, to provide access to education and course materials without restriction to everyone, we will continue with the online form of education this semester. However, we are looking for the possibility of organizing contact programs, of which we will notify you in time.

In case you need help or support, do not hesitate to contact us.

Best Regards,

The International Office
