HUNGARY REOPENS BORDERS TO SOME EASTERN NEIGHBORS

Hungary decided to let tourists from its three East European neighbors, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia, enter the country with a fresh negative coronavirus test.

Last week Hungary said it would close its borders to foreigners from Tuesday to curb a rise in coronavirus cases.

Returning Hungarian citizens can leave a 14-day quarantine only if they provide two negative COVID tests.

However, after talks with Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis on Monday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban agreed to let Czech visitors who have already booked holidays in Hungary for September enter the country.

The easing was subsequently extended to Poland and Slovakia, the ministry said in a statement.

Visitors coming to Hungary have to produce a negative COVID test not older than five days, which Budapest says represents sufficient safety guarantees.
