While some of the restrictions introduced earlier still apply, the following measures come into force once 4 million people have received at least their first dose of one of the available coronavirus vaccines.

The new regulations tie relaxing pandemic related restrictions in Hungary to developments in the fight against the pandemic: the new measures will come into force once 2.5 million in Hungary have received at least the first dose of one of the available coronavirus vaccines.
In the past weeks, there has been a lot of confusion about this issue and several people have posted and shared the (mis)information that even if you have no TAJ number, you can register for the vaccine with a generic number 900 000 007. Please DO NOT DO THIS because:
For now, getting vaccinated for the coronavirus in Hungary is possible only if you have a Hungarian social security number. If you have that, you will still need to be registered at a GP (general practitioner) to get the vaccine – let us guide you through the whole process.

Hungary offers favorable taxation, advanced infrastructure, and low costs. If you are operating an IT company in Serbia and are looking for better conditions, set up a company in Hungary and enjoy all the benefits it can offer.
