Hungary has reached an agreement with the Czech Republic on unrestricted cross-border travel for each other's nationals who have been inoculated against the coronavirus, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in a message posted on Facebook early Friday.

From Saturday, both countries will mutually recognize each other's COVID immunity certificates, regardless of the type of vaccine used, Szijjártó said.

He added that talks on unrestricted travel for the vaccinated would take place in Lodz, Poland, later on Friday.

In addition to the Czech Republic, Hungary has reached agreements on mutual recognition of COVID immunity certificates with Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Turkey, and Bahrain. Romania also honors Hungarian immunity certificates and vice versa.
