Yes, Hungary is open to American tourists

Hungary effectively opened to American (and Canadian, and any other nationality) tourists on June 23rd 2021, arriving from one of Hungary’s EU neighbors (Croatia, Austria, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia) and have valid travel documents (a valid passport). Arrival via land borders with Ukraine is not allowed. From August 7th 2021, Hungary resumed allowing tourists from the US (and any other country) to enter the country by air, providing they meet the entry requirements.

There are no test requirements to enter Hungary.

Antigen or PCR Testing for Returning Home

If you need to get tested for your journey home, whether it is required by the airline or for re-entry into the U.S. we will help you schedule that at the most convenient location possible, at the appropriate time. For re-entry to the US you need to have a negative result from a Covid-19 viral test taken no more than one day before your arrival. Since May 12 2021, the CDC have approved Antigen tests for travel. Antigen tests are quicker (results in 30 minutes, not 24 hours) and cheaper (around 1/3 the price or less) than PCR tests and often more readily available. If you are flying direct back to the US, the only test you’ll need is an Antigen test. If you are transferring in another country on the way back to the US other requirements may apply. We advise to check with the airline in this case.

General COVID-19 measures to be aware of

  • maintain physical distance (1.5 meters)
  • maintain hand hygiene and disinfection (we will provide a personal bottle of hand sanitiser to you upon arrival)
  • for as long as face masks are required, we will provide one disposable mask per day of your vacation upon request
