Hungary’s new immigration law – level 1

05-03-2024 07:00

Hungary has a new rule about people who come to live there. The rule is the strictest in the EU. They do it because too many people come to live in Hungary.

The rule says that Hungarians should get jobs first. If someone from another country loses their job in Hungary, they must leave the country. They can stay only for six more days. Also, there are different permits for workers with and without skills. People who want to spend a lot of money in Hungary can live there for some time.

Some politicians do not like this rule.

Difficult words: strict (very serious about rules), permit (a document which allows something), skill (when you can do something well).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What are some potential negative implications of the new strict rule in Hungary for foreign workers and the country's economy?
