In light of the decision adopted by the Hungarian government to temporarily reintroduce strict border controls and entry bans to the country as of 1 September 2020, and following consultations, the Executive Director of CEPOL has decided on the suspension of all onsite residential activities programmed to take place in Budapest until the end of October.

The decree issued by the Hungarian authorities, which reinstates measures in force during the first wave of the coronavirus epidemic, will have an immediate impact on the following CEPOL operational activities:

  • Residential on-site training activities that were planned to be hosted in Budapest until 31.10.2020 have been cancelled;
  • Exchanges with Hungarian parties involved will also be cancelled.

Organised meetings at CEPOL headquarters with participants from outside Hungary are cancelled for the same period, while decision on granted training activities implemented by CEPOL Framework Partners in their respective host countries will be taken on an ad hoc basis.

The Agency is currently assessing moving some of the cancelled classroom training content into eLearning activities.
