Hungary: Ukrainian refugees
Created: 01/04/2022 +

Overview

As at 28 March 2022, more than four million people had crossed international borders since the start of the hostilities in Ukraine on 24 February 2022. In early March, UNHCR projected at least 250,000 Ukrainians arriving in Hungary by July 2022 as a result of the conflict. On 24 March, this projection had already more than doubled with 522,100 arrivals. The rapid influx of migrants and refugees into the country has already posed a challenge to reception capacities, which the Hungarian Government has reduced in recent years to discourage migration.
