Appointments for COVID Vaccination are Now Available for Foreign Nationals without a Social Security Number

On the 19th of June, the Hungarian health service provider made it possible for foreign citizens to register for the vaccination and book an appointment for the vaccination on its electronic online platform (EESZT) even without a Hungarian social security number.


Valid registrants will receive a notification email to the email address they provided during their pre-registration, including the link to the English-language booking platform for those without a social security number and the technical identification number (PID number) generated by the EESZT.


By clicking on the link in the email notification, they can access the appointment booking platform by using one of the identifiers they provided when registering and the PID number they received.


For pre-registration and more information, please visit this website.

SZTE Experience


Nikki - Faculty of Health Sciences and Social Studies

My name is Nikki and I am from Iran. Currently I am a second year student studying Physiotherapy at the University of Szeged. I really like the Environment of Szeged as it is a true University City where you can meet people from around the world. I consider Szeged as my second home since I have established my own path here and I have a lot of friends who make me feel home. The reason why I came to Szeged is because I was informed by one of my friends about the fact that the University degrees are EU accredited and will help me to reach my goals and open doors for future job opportunities. Once I have obtained my degree, I would like to stay in Hungary and pursue a post graduate program. Later on I will seize the opportunity to gain some job experience in my field here in Hungary before I hold my ground in Europe.


Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.
