  1. Hello! I’ve seen some information about limited period of COVID certificate for entrance in Hungary. In Russia our Sputnik V vaccine will be valid until July (for 1 year), it means that it’s been for over 6 months since the vaccination. Is there the same period and we can use our certificate for entrance to baths?

    • Hello Irina,
      Covid passes usually have an expiration date, so please make sure that the document is valid, refer to the date on the Covid certificate.
      Have a nice time in Hungary!

  2. Good afternoon,
    My girlfriend and I are interested to come to your SPA. We are coming from Serbia; she has a vaccine certificate and I have COVID pass that was issued in authorize institution in Serbia. My question is, can I enter with a COIVD pass from Serbia?
    Thank you for the reply
    Aleksander

    • Dear Aleksander,
      EU or International Covid Passport or proof Vaccinations are fine, the Serbian as well.
      They do have an expiration date, so please make sure that your document is valid. It does not matter how many jabs you have had if the document is valid, you can enter.
      If you have official proof of recovery from Covid (EU recovery pass) it is also accepted
      Enjoy your stay in Budapest!

  3. How can i book for two people on Wednesday 16th February?

  4. If someone doesn’t covid passport, do you accept PCR test instead?

    • Hello Agnes,

      The entry requirements are the following (for all thermal baths in Budapest):

      EU or International (US, CA, AU, etc.) Covid Passport or proof of Vaccination over 16 of age are required along with a matching photo ID. They do have an expiration date, so please make sure that your document is valid. It does not matter how many jabs/ vaccines you have had if the document is valid, you can enter.
      If you have official proof of recovery from Covid (EU recovery pass) it is also accepted (antibody test)

      Please note, that PCR tests or LFS (lateral flow tests) are not accepted, only recommended on top of Covid passports.
      Thank you for your kind cooperation and enjoy the thermal waters in Budapest, Hungary.
