In 2020, 117 asylum seekers were registered by the authorities in Hungary, an 80% decrease compared to the previous year. This number includes two unaccompanied minors. Most people of concern were coming from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq. 

UNHCR's Multi-Country Office is located in Budapest; it oversees UNHCR's operations in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Moldova and Hungary. We follow and comment on developments in policy, legislation, and the daily practice of refugee protection. We are working with governments and partner organizations. We are committed to creating public support for asylum-seekers, refugees, and stateless persons.
