Announcement follows similar agreement with Serbia and Montenegro
Hungary, Slovenia, Bahrain to mutually recognise vaccination certificates
Hungary has agreed with Slovenia and Bahrain to mutually recognise immunity certificates and allow free travel for their citizens irrespective of the type of vaccine they have been inoculated with, Peter Szijjarto, the minister of foreign affairs and trade, said on Facebook on Saturday.
Szijjarto said that the agreement with Slovenia was effective from Saturday, while the deal with Bahrain would take effect on Monday.
The minister noted that Bahrain had been one of the first countries to apply the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine, and it had offered its experience to Hungary. The approval of the vaccine in Hungary would have taken longer without Bahrain’s assistance and “tens of thousands fewer Hungarians would be inoculated and thus safe”, he added.
The foreign minister announced on Friday that agreements were signed with foreign ministers Nikola Selakovic of Serbia and Dorde Radulovic of Montenegro about the mutual recognition of vaccination certificates.
