According to the decision of the responsible Hungarian ministries, no phytosanitary certificate is required for importing fruit and vegetables for personal consumption, defined as quantities under 5 kg, but limited to one item.

The measure applies only to goods arriving in travelers’ luggage and only at the border crossing in Hungary until the relevant threshold is set by the European Commission.
