Hungarian government has come to the rescue of Nigerians and other foreigners fleeing troubled Ukraine by enacting a law that allows them to seek temporary refuge in Hungary.

A statement by the Nigeria’s Embassy in Budapest, Hungary informed Nigerian nationals arriving from Ukraine, that the Government of Hungary has enacted Decree 56/2022 (24.II), which permits third country nationals with valid Ukrainian resident permits to enter Hungary on a temporary basis, without a Schengen visa.
