Hungary has agreed with Egypt and the Maldives to mutually recognize Covid immunity certificates, Péter Szijjártó, the minister of foreign affairs and trade, said on Saturday.
Under the agreement with Egypt, Hungarians who have been inoculated against Covid can enter the country without restriction from Tuesday, with only unvaccinated children between the ages of 6 and 18 needing to present a Covid test upon entry, the minister said in a video on Facebook.
From Wednesday, vaccinated Hungarian and Maldivian citizens over 18 can enter each other’s countries with an immunity certificate, while minors can enter unrestricted, Szijjártó said.
Hungary has now reached agreements on mutual recognition of Covid immunity certificates with 22 countries, he said.
