In preparing to halt the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hungarian government introduced a new set of measures effective from 1 September. According to this, only Hungarians and foreign nationals, who hold a permanent residence permit are allowed to enter Hungary. Therefore, the previous classification of countries as green, yellow, and red no longer applies. 

The Hungarian Government will continually monitor infection data from abroad, therefore, we recommend you to monitor the latest news on this website.

However, please do not be sad, as the event will be held in a hybrid format, therefore, online participation will also be possible! We await your application!
