It was written on the website: according to the government decree, there are three ways to prove protection against the coronavirus:

if you have been vaccinated or have been confirmed to have been infected with a coronavirus, or if you are suspected of having been infected but were unaware of this or have not been tested and a subsequent antibody test confirms that you have been vaccinated.

It was highlighted that if someone has been vaccinated, they do not need to apply for a card. The state mails the free card ex officio, its issuance does not have to be requested separately. The vaccination card does not have a validity period. In addition to personal data, the card will include the time and type of vaccination.

If someone has previously been confirmed to have been infected with a coronavirus, the day of recovery from the infection marks the beginning of protection, they added. The day of recovery is the date recorded in the Electronic Health Services Area (EHIC) when you have had a negative PCR test or antigen rapid test after you have previously had a positive test or tests.

In case someone has only a positive test for infection but no more tests have been done – for example, because they were asymptomatic or mild and quarantined at home – then the 10th day after the test is the official day of recovery.

It is stated that the validity of the protection certificate is 6 months after the proven recovery. The card is free of charge in this case as well, it is mailed ex officio by the state, its issuance does not have to be requested separately.

According to the information, if someone is suspected of having contracted the infection but did not know about it or was not tested for it, they can also confirm that they have contracted the infection with an antibody test. In this case, the examination will be cost-effective, but will be officially priced, amounting to HUF 11,000. In addition, the amount of HUF 3,000 for the issuance of the protection certificate must be paid.

If the antibody test confirms that someone has actually been infected before, the validity of the protection certificate is 4 months

they wrote. In this case, the security card can be applied for electronically – on an electronic form standardized by the capital and county government offices – or in person at any government window.

They added that in addition to the ID card, protection can also be verified by an application. The application confirms the vaccination of the data subject after the identification of the data subject, based on the data obtained from the EESC. The application displays the name of the vaccinee, the number of the affected person, the time of vaccination, the type of vaccination, the fact of protection against the infection or the lack thereof.

The card is valid together with the presentation of an identity card or passport and includes the indication of each data in English, the announcement states.
