Hungary: what vaccines are allowed for Russian tourists
From August 2, in 18 cities of Russia Hungarian visa centers resumed accepting documents for tourist visas. According to the Hungarian Embassy in the Russian Federation, from July 27 Russian citizens can enter Hungary without restrictions (quarantine and PCR tests), if they have a valid Schengen visa and a COVID-19 vaccination certificate. As the diplomatic mission clarified, certificates of vaccination with any vaccine, permitted for use in Russia, are accepted.
So, it can be Sputnik V, EpiVacCorona and KoviVac vaccines, as well as the one-component Sputnik Light. Thus, all Russian tourists who have completed a full course of coronavirus vaccination can plan a trip to Hungary.
According to the Hungarian visa operator in the Russian Federation, the acceptance of documents for a visa is possible with a certificate of vaccination with any Russian vaccine. You need to print a document on full vaccination from the portal of public services with a QR code and attach it to the set of documents.
For a visa to Hungary tourist have to pay 35 Euros, plus 17,5 Euros for service fee of visa centers. Children under 6 years of age are exempt from paying the service fee.
As tour operators inform, before the pandemic, it took about 2 weeks to get a visa to Hungary. How long this process lasts today will become clear a little later. Tour operator companies have not yet received appropriate explanations from the consulate.
