It is expected that the Hungarian Government will extend the officially declared state of danger due to the Covid-19 pandemic for a period lasting 22 February 2021 until 22 May 2021. Exceptional rules will continue to apply to residence permit validity.
Our briefing paper provides an overview of the emergency regimes introduced in Hungary due to the COVID-19 pandemic since March 2020 until the present day and explains the consequences in terms of the executive’s powers.
In the early morning hours of 13 May 2020 in the town of Gyula, located in the southeast corner of Hungary, the police raided the home of Mr János Csóka-Szűcs, a local NGO activist.

Our briefing note provides an overview of the new legal framework for assuming state control over private companies, created step-by-step by under the state of danger.
The explanatory note provides details of the proposed new framework concerning the state of danger and the state of medical emergency; compares the scope of decrees the Government may issue during a future state of danger, a future state of medical emergency, and while the Authorization Act remains in force; and demonstrates how the decision to lift the current state of danger will remain at the discretion of the Government.
