The facility is available to all – arriving and departing passengers, as well as the general public. Registration is required for each test, along with a fee of 19,500 forints.

Set up in Arrivals at terminal 2B of Budapest Airport, a Covid testing centre is now in operation to anyone who registers and pays for their test, with swift results – no appointment necessary. Results are sent to you by email.
