Coronavirus: Eight Crossings Open to Commuters on Hungary-Romania Border

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.04.15.

Eight crossings are currently open for commuters on the Hungary-Romania border, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Wednesday.

Both the Hungarian and Romanian governments have imposed restrictions on passenger traffic in an effort to slow down the spread of the novel coronavirus epidemic, Szijjártó said on Facebook. But these restrictions have complicated life for people who work of have land on the either side of the border, he added.

An earlier agreement with the Romanian government to keep three border crossings open for such people has been expanded to eight crossings, based on positive experiences so far, he said.

Since Easter, the border crossings at Csengersima, Vállaj, Létavértes, Ártánd, Méhkerék, Gyula, Nagylak and Kiszombor have been open to commuters, Szijjártó added.
