Information on hungarian entry requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic preparedness period
Announcement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary
Certain unidentified persons are taking advantage of the situation generated by the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID19) global pandemic with the intention to commit fraud. Various cases have been reported where persons acting on behalf of fictious companies or companies in liquidation were approaching foreign healthcare institutions with business offers, claiming to be in possession of a large supply of health protective equipment (mainly facial masks). In such cases, down payment was required in return for the promised shipment. Eventually, various excuses where used as to why the promised goods were never actually delivered to the intended purchaser.
We wish to inform you, that until further notice, the Hungarian missions and Visa Application Centers in the People’s Republic of China will not accept applications for either Schengen visas or residence permits.
