Travel & visa

Travel to Budapest

Participants will most likely arrive to Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport. The fastest way to downtown Budapest is either by taxi or by the Airport Shuttle minibuses. The Airport Shuttle operates a booth right at the arrival exit of the airport. For actual fares, please visit their website.

Those who prefer public transport (BKK) can reach the city centre with the bus 100E from either terminal. Tickets can be purchased at the airport.

We highly recommend you to use BudapestGo public transport app
to plan your trip within Budapest, or buy your tickets.

Note that passengers may transfer between metro lines with the same ticket but not between other means of transport, so reaching the city centre requires at least two tickets. A single ticket costs 350 HUF (100E airport shuttle buses are available for a special fare, not for the ordinary price). You can find a list of all available ticket options here.

Travel to Budapest by air

There are daily direct flights from most European and from some North American cities. Liszt Ferenc Airport is situated on the SE margin of Budapest, 20 km from the city centre and is a popular destination for many low fare air carriers. The Airport Minibus service is relatively cheap and reliable.

Public transport (#200E, air conditioned) circulates between the terminals and the Kőbánya-Kispest terminal of the Metro line 3 (“blue line”) at 8-15-minute intervals in daytime. #100E bus cruises between the airport and the Deák Ferenc Square directly to the downtown of the Pest side of Budapest. As an alternative, trains from Terminal 1 leave for Nyugati railway station frequently.

Budapest airport has two terminals
(practically one large, as 2B is directly connected to 2A),
  • Terminal 2A: for international flights arriving from the Schengen zone
  • Terminal 2B: for flights arriving from the non-schengen zone, departure terminal for budget airlines

Travel to Budapest by train

Budapest has direct rail links to some 25 capitals. There are three major international railway stations in Budapest:

  • Keleti pályaudvar (Eastern Railway Station), on Metro line 2 (“red line”)
    and Metro line 4 (“green line”)
  • Nyugati pályaudvar (Western Railway Station), on Metro line 3 (“blue line”)
  • Déli Pályaudvar (Southern Railway Station), on Metro line 2 (“red line”)

For information on international connections in English see the railway journey planner of the MÁV-Start Zrt. (Hungarian Railway Passenger Transport Co.) or the international railway journey planner Deutsche Bahn.

Customs information for Hungary

Hungary joined the European Union on 1 May 2004. Since that date Hungary has adopted the customs regulation of the European Union. Detailed information about travel documents and customs can be found at this website. For further information about the custom procedures, please read the homepage of the Hungarian customs authority.

Visa information for Hungary

Hungary is part of the Schengen Area of 25 European countries. For non-Schengen EU, USA and Canadian citizens a valid passport is sufficient to enter Hungary. Citizens of other countries should check whether visa is needed for them when entering Hungary (for more information please visit the home page of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Hungary). On request, the Organizing Committee will issue invitation letters for visa applications. Please apply in due time for a visa if necessary. Please indicate during the registration if you need a personal invitation to attend the conference. It is important to note that a visa is only a preliminary permission for entry, which does not authorise its bearer automatically to enter the country.
