Cyprus to Recognise Hungary Immunity Certificates

MTI-Hungary Today 2021.06.07.

Hungary has reached an agreement with Cyprus on the mutual recognition of each other’s Covid-19 immunity certificates, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Saturday.

Under the agreement, Hungarians who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 will no longer be required to stay in isolation in Cyprus or present negative tests when travelling there from next week, Szijjártó told public media.

Inoculated Hungarian citizens will be allowed to enter Cyprus without restrictions irrespective of which vaccine they received, the minister said.
