Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has issued a decree banning foreigners from entering the country with a few exceptions. The ban, which takes effect today, was announced last Friday.
Exceptions apply to government officials who organize business events, recipients of medical services, international students with a certificate of full-time service, truck drivers on their way home, guests at family gatherings such as weddings, and participants in sporting, cultural, or religious events.
Anyone allowed to enter Hungary must be quarantined for two weeks and tested negative for the coronavirus twice.
A two-week quarantine is also mandatory for Hungarians returning to the country from abroad.
