Hungary has reached an agreement with the Czech Republic on unlimited cross-border travel for everyone’s nationals who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus, Foreign and Trade Minister Péter Szijjártó said in a Facebook post early Friday.
From Saturday, the two countries will recognize each other’s COVID immunity certificates regardless of the type of vaccine used, Szijjártó said.
He added that discussions on unrestricted travel for the vaccinated would take place in Lodz, Poland, later on Friday.
Besides the Czech Republic, Hungary has agreements on mutual recognition of COVID immunity certificates with Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Turkey and Bahrain. Romania also honors Hungarian immunity certificates and vice versa.
