Hungary and Austria are reopening the Fertőrákos-Sankt Margarethen (Szentmargitbánya) border crossing next Wednesday, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Facebook.
This will resolve the problem of Hungarians who work in Austria being caught up by epidemic-related restrictions, he said, noting that the commuters were having to wait in long queues at the Sopron station early in the morning.
