Isolation protocol:

Summary

Early release is possible with a negative Ag rapid test made on the 5th day.
Please see details below.
 
Symptomatic patients
A patient can be released from the isolation if: (i) has no fever for at least 3 days, (ii) respiratory symptoms disappeared, and (iii) at least 7 days elapsed since the first symptoms.
If there were mild symptoms only which disappeared on the 4th day: early release is possible with a negative Ag rapid test made on the 5th day after the first symptoms.
Medical conditions are to be consulted with and confirmed by health care professionals.
 
Asymptomatic patients
Release on the 7th day after the confirmation of the illness (i.e. sampling before positive PCR or Ag rapid test).
Early release is possible with a negative Ag rapid test made on the 5th day after the confirmation of the illness.
 
Close contacts
Release on the 7th day after the last contact.
Early release is possible with a negative Ag rapid test made on the 5th day after the latest contact.
Those who hold an immunity card are not to be deemed close contacts – that is unchanged.
 
In terms of travel:
All Non-EU citizens, such as citizens of the US, Canada, UK, Sweden, Japan, and several other countries, are allowed to enter Hungary for work purpose. They need to provide an invitation letter, which we will send out before arrival but the there is no more quarantine required.

 

For EU Citizens: The EU COVID ID is available from July 1st. The Gov. Decree 408/2020 on travel restrictions is not applicable at all for those traveling with an EU COVID ID.

There will be different types of EU COVID IDs. The EU COVID ID can certify one of the below facts:

  • vaccinated minimum once: the ID is valid within 1 year after the vaccination,
  • recovered from the illness: has antigen in their body which is evidenced by a rapid antigen lab test (and at least 15 days elapsed after the test but no more than 180 days),
  • has a negative PCR test result not older than 72 hours.

 

The EU COVID ID is equal to the Hungarian immunity card if it is necessary to prove immunity in Hungary in any case.
