Covid-19 Update

The Hungarian Government announced further measures on March 16th to combat the spread of COVID 19.

These include the closure of all borders to foreigners from midnight on Monday, March 16th. Only Hungarian citizens and EEA citizens with a residence permit or an address card (Lakcímkártya) will be allowed to enter the country. It is not clear yet whether all international flights and trains will be stopped or if the airport will remain open, but we can expect airlines to start scaling back or cancelling their services in the coming days.
If Irish citizens wish to leave Hungary they should consider doing so in the coming days. For flight information, please contact your airlines.
