PCR Testing vs Quarantine
At the moment, international travellers are required to undergo a mandatory, strict, 10 day quarantine. If you would like to shorten the quarantine period, the only way is to take two PCR tests a minimum of 48 hours apart, after arrival to Hungary, both of which should be negative. If you would like to go through the PCR testing please follow the steps below:
1. We highly advise to take a PCR test prior to departure whether your airline requires it or not, so that you can rest assured that you are negative upon arrival.
2. Book a PCR test to be done at the Budapest airport, upon arrival. Please book your PCR test at the airport in advance, payment can be done on arrival.
3. Also book in advance a second PCR test at a testing centre close to you. For more advice on this, let us know if you opt for this option and we will assist with testing centre locations and procedures.
4. To get out of quarantine early through PCR testing, application for police permits are required, additional information will be provided for this.
