The Embassy of Ukraine explained the rules, which should be observed by the Ukrainians in case of the transit entrance to Hungary as the Embassy of Ukraine to Hungary reported on Facebook.

“Currently, there is a ban for entrance to Hungary for the citizens of Ukraine. The citizens of Ukraine who are the parents or spouse of the citizens of Hungary and other EU countries have the right to enter. Besides, the citizens of Ukraine may enter Hungary for up to 24 hours within 30 km zone,” the embassy reminded.

In case of sufficient reasons (trial, employment, treatment, education, burial and so on) for entrance to Hungary, it is necessary to receive permission from the Hungarian police. To get it, a person should fill a form only in Hungarian language and file the electronic application.
