๐Ÿ›ฌ heihxwi just arrived in ๐ŸŒ‰ Budapest, #hungary
Arrived in Budapest today and there was literally no passport control, covid check or police. I got my bag and left the airport no questions asked ๐Ÿ˜‚
Coming form the EU.
๐Ÿ›ฌ xxrvfsdqy just arrived in ๐ŸŒ‰ Budapest, #hungary
Yes - Barcelona -> Budapest. Ryanair didn't ask for any COVID certificate or test as well.
There's no legal ground for within-EU border passport or covid controls, they can't ask it due to privacy laws etc. Open intra EU borders is consitutional etc
fdjcawscwy interesting... I thought the whole point of the EU-Covid Passport was to ease people traveling inside of Europe without having to quarantine or present PCR tests...
Like I totally agree with you - the whole point of Europe is that you can move around no questions asked... But COVID changed everything
I agree with you, I'm just saying what the rules are
EU also can't force vaccines and not being vaccinated still means having free movement, no legal precedent to stop free movement for non vaccinated, it'd start a shit show
The EU COVID passport was to ease travel within EU esp going into restaurants, shops etc
"How do you ensure that non-vaccinated people are not discriminated when exercising their right to free movement?

To ensure that the right to free movement in the EU is respected and that there is no discrimination against individuals who are not vaccinated, the EU Digital COVID Certificate will cover COVID-19 vaccination certificates, test certificates, and certificates for persons who have recovered from COVID-19. In this way, as many persons as possible will be able to benefit from an EU Digital COVID Certificate when travelling.

The aim of the EU Digital COVID Certificate is to facilitate free movement inside the EU. It is not be a pre-condition to travel. The EU Digital COVID Certificate is not a travel document. Persons who are not vaccinated must be able to exercise their free movement rights the same way as those who are vaccinated, where necessary subject to limitations such as testing or quarantine/self-isolation."
I'm no anti vaxer, pro vax, just showing EU rules. They can't do anything to stop people traveling without the QR code. It's mostly for aesthetics not real
Good points. I now feel like I've wasted a few months waiting to be vaccinated before traveling, k thanks bye joyjoy
If you're inside EU true, outside EU makes sense when getting in. And vaccinating always makes sense IMHO
Yeah I'm kinda joking - I feel much safer after being vaccinated. Esp in Budapest where COVID seems to be non-existant
Hey, anyone for a beer some day?
Great. Not today though. Yesterday I went out with some Irish guys who are on a holiday here. Not a good idea if you want to wake up early ๐Ÿ˜„

Hi everybody, I'm at Budapest since 1 week and I feel the hungarians are very aggressive with english speaking people. It likes that for you as well?
100%. I've been treated quite badly, but mostly by older people. Young people are very nice & outgoing.
Try to learn some basic stuff in Hungarian, it helps a lot
But I know how you feel. Honestly I traveled a lot and never encountered such hostility anywhere else, no idea what's going on ๐Ÿ˜‚
Thank you for your tips. I will go to learn few words :)
I think we are quite a few here, meetup this week?
fgtkyufrj let's have a drink on Thursday? We can start a meetup if you want, but I don't know many places suitable yet
I might leave quite early on Thursdayโ€ฆ Iโ€™m not busy this evening or tomorrow if you want, currently at Flow on my iPad just wasting time :D
Tomorrow works for me
Letโ€™s chat tomorrow then, maybe others join in too!
Is there any place you are keen to check out? I really like Pontoon it's an open bar next to the river. I want to check out Szimpla Kert as well but I think it's mored geared towards partying, not sure...
Yep, let's chat tomorrow!
Pontoon looks good!
Szimpla Kert is chill during the day, more like a beer garden/cafe vibe. It becomes full party mode in the evening
try opening with good eye contact and a nice strong szia, then immediately and quickly ask your question in english -- seems to work much better than starting with hey/hi/hello/sorry/etc lol
if you get what I mean
Looks like a expert technique ๐Ÿ˜„
I'll try it.
The little details can make it or break it here sweat_smilejoy
trust me it works, you gotta get the szia right tho
keep in mind it's informal
I believe you ๐Ÿ™‚
hey everyone. coming to budapest tomorrow
any tips to find short terms apartments at reasonable price? (not airbnb please)
thanks to all!
How long are you staying?
I can vouch for and local people here use
Wondering if anyone would be up for grabbing drinks tonight? DM me if so!
๐Ÿ›ฌ bljvbjijdqsldn just arrived in Pรฉcs, #hungary
Thanks! I see it only now
Hey guys, I'm checking out coworking spaces here in Budapest. Do you guys have any preferred place to go? Thanks
Itโ€™s not a classic Coworking Space, but Flow is a good Place with Great coffee, nice food and a couple of people hanging around loxopaxe
Thanks kltgupzxsatd I will check it out
fasqfbfk I spent a day in Impact Hub and checked out Kaptar. Impact Hub is VERY office-like. They have awesome chairs, lots of space, and it's in a nice fancy building. But the vibe is kind of depressing, like in a bad office. Won't go back
Kaptar is small, cozy. Split into two areas, two different buildings. Cheap bad plastic Ikea chairs in the non-fixed, a bit nicer ones in the fixed-desk area but still kinda bad. Mood is much better, people that run it are awesome.
None of them convinced me but I'll probably sign up for Kaptar this week
For working if you live in Buda, Bela Bartok street is loaded with cool cafes for working (Kelet, Caphe, 4 Street, etc)
The second one is more popular. I'm with Airbnb because I don't know how long I'll be here and don't want to deal with contracts bullshit - but Airbnbs are super expensive here.
I think in the winter it changes because no one wants to be here so you find ultra cheap things
I worked 2 weeks from Cowork division (close to Rรกkรณczi tรฉr), and was pretty happy with them. It's a small place (practically a flat made into an office) with 2-3 regulars and proper desk space and office chair for 1-2 more.
They're on the top floor so there is also balcony with a nice view where they do after work drinks sometimes
Has any US Citizen recently entered Hungary? I think they just changed the COVID rules and not quite sure if I will be let into the country. Iโ€™m fully vaccinated
You'll be fine if you're coming from within Schengen already. If not...probably best to transit through another country first
hey lnevbqo thanks for the tips. I was in kaptar for the second time today, just to see, and honestly I find it way overpriced... I also tried hubhub, and don't find it freelance friendly to be honest. I'm still in doubt to be honest...
thanks ffkdjo
ycxrpavb yep it's definitely targeted to foreigners ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven't signed up yet
Anyone up for a drink later?
Hi folks! :wave:

My name is Manuel. Iโ€™m software developer from Canada. I have been staying in Budapest for week. Does somebody is up to meet tomorrow night for a drink?
Youโ€™ll have to fill the passenger locator form & show proof of vaccination. I presented these a couple of days ago & I was able to get in without no issues. I am from Canada though
hey gayjeyx happy to do something tonight. let's chat in pm ๐Ÿ™‚
hey dndswcutpjxzcywe maybe me, but not sure yet...
riqlkcx I also found another space that I'm trying exactly now, called Urban Lobby. It's 60โ‚ฌ THE MONTH
and the place is very beautiful (but empty)
eysokuom obnwxhi Iโ€™m down, let me know ๐Ÿ™‚
I was vaccinated 6 days ago. Can I enter Hungary or do I have to wait 14 days since the last shot? Ukraine to Hungary bus ๐Ÿค”
I'll start a DM
I'd be really surprised if you had any problem whatsoever... Just in case I would have an antigen/PCR test done
So that you can show it if they were to make any trouble
Hey everyone, I'm arriving in Budapest on the 6th. I'm flying in from the USA, and I cant find any straight forward information on the travel restrictions. Are there any Americans who have flown from USA => BUD recently, and did you need anything besides a negative PCR test and CDC vaccine card to get through?
๐Ÿ›ฌ qeidhwqtp just arrived in ๐ŸŒ‰ Budapest, #hungary
๐Ÿ›ฌ fpecagwiqcuzdz just arrived in ๐ŸŒ‰ Budapest, #hungary
Is it possible to enter in Hungary right now from Serbia ? I cant find any clear information
I have EU covid vaccination
๐Ÿ›ฌ syvuhuoq just arrived in ๐ŸŒ‰ Budapest, #hungary
Today I learned about "trash day" here in Budapest. Shocking, have never seen that before!
Both are in the EU-Covid-Passport thing so if you have your QR code you can do it
This is when everyone throws his unwanted furniture and broken electric stuff on the road for pickup, right?
it's full of "gypsies(?)" standing guard around, I assume it's their loot to make sure no one else touches it
๐Ÿ›ฌ htafiruomj just arrived in ๐ŸŒ‰ Budapest, #hungary
I was always wondering why isnโ€™t there some sort of tourism built around trash day when I lived in Budapest, itโ€™s a hidden gem ๐Ÿ˜„
๐Ÿ›ฌ weyrhf just arrived in ๐ŸŒ‰ Budapest, #hungary
I just confirmed with an immigration officer that US nationals are allowed to stay for an extra 90 days on top of the Schengen 90 days using a direct bilateral agreement for a total of up to 180 consecutive days without a visa
How does one go about doing that?
apparently itโ€™s automatic, you donโ€™t need to do anything
if youโ€™re worried you can call the embassy or go into the immigration office to check for yourself
Interesting. So, you could stay 90 days elsewhere in any of the Schengen countries and then come to Hungary and stay another 90 days. Then, go back to another Schengen country?
I donโ€™t think so. Youโ€™d need to wait 180 days after that to reset both.
