Coronavirus: UK Planes Allowed into Hungary from Midnight

MTI-Hungary Today 2021.01.05.

The Hungarian government has decided to lift the ban on passenger flights arriving from the United Kingdom from midnight on Tuesday, a member of the operative body responsible for handling the epidemic response said.

Róbert Kiss told a regular press conference on Tuesday that Hungarian passengers will be subject to restrictions already in force and will be required to enter mandatory self-quarantine.

The government will soon make further decisions on other restrictions such as the night-time curfew, mask-wearing, and limits on shopping and attendance of events, he said.

The government banned all passenger air services from the UK in December, following the example of most EU countries.
