Hungary - Hungarian Government extends state of emergency but phases out certain protective measures




I. EXTENSION OF THE STATE OF EMERGENCY

On 21 May 2021 the Hungarian Parliament passed Act XL of 2021 amending the act on the defense against the COVID-19 pandemic, thus further extending the state of emergency until the 15th day following the first 2021 autumn parliamentary session, which in practice is likely to fall at the end of September. The extension of the state of emergency prolongs the effect of several COVID-19 related regulations as well, and also includes that the restrictions on foreign investments (FDI) will be effective until 31 December 2021 (see our earlier newsletter on this matter on the following link).
