Are you looking to travel to Hungary this year? There are many reasons why especially if you are a tourist looking for an exceptionally beautiful place to have a break. There is lots of thermal baths, picturesque scenery, and romantic architecture. Even if you are heading there for a business meeting, you couldn’t hope to find a better part of Europe.
Before February/March 2020, it was relatively easy, with a passport, to travel just about anywhere in the world. Then the coronavirus pandemic took hold of the world and our lives were restricted in so many different ways, including foreign travel. Wherever you are heading, now, even as the government works hard to vaccinate everyone, there are a lot more important steps you need to take beyond ensuring that your passport is valid and that you have airline tickets. In the following post we are going to answer some of the many questions you have about travelling to Hungary, particularly concerning Hungary fit to fly test and Hungary Fit to Fly Certificate.
Can You Travel to Hungary?
As is the case with so many countries around the world, there are some restrictions on travelling to and entering Hungary.
If you are not flying, you are allowed entry to Hungary by waterway, rail, or road from all neighbouring countries, regardless of your coronavirus immunity and nationality, without any restrictions. This includes Ukraine, Slovenia, Slovakia, Serbia, Romania, Austria, and Croatia.
If you are travelling from the UK directly to Hungary, there are no restrictions, as long as you possess a negative Covid-19 test that has been conducted within 72 hours before you arrived in the country.
What Covid-19 Test Do You Need to Have to Travel to Hungary?
With the above in mind, it’s important to note that you need to have a PCR test with a negative result to gain entry to Hungary from the UK.
What Documentation Do You Need to Enter Hungary?
In the situation above, if you are travelling to Hungary directly from the UK, in addition to your PCR Test negative test result, you need to have a suitable Fit to Fly Certificate. This should be translated into Hungarian or in English and should include the following information – test type and result, location of the test was performed and the date it was administered. At Pure Testing, we also provide a signature from a registered GP and UKAS accreditation information relating to the testing facility and laboratory.
Where Can You Get a Covid-19 PCR Test and Hungary Fit to Fly Certificate?
Since early into the pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns, tests have been developed for and used by the NHS to identify people who are carrying or suffering from this coronavirus. Those are the only reasons why you can get free Covid-19 tests through the NHS. For all other purposes, including travelling to places like Hungary, you need to find a private practice and pay for your Covid-19 test.
There are many facilities out there, which can make the decision of which to choose for your Covid-19 test difficult.
Some considerations to keep in mind, that will help you make the best decision are:
Choosing a facility that offers quick results. Although the time it takes to get results will depend on the type of test, you should be wary of using a service that can not provide them quickly. It is also important to find a testing facility that has the full backing of the UK government and have the appropriate accreditation.
