    Dear Ms. Lysenko,

    Thank you for your query. A travel agency only mediates the services of a travel operator to customers, upon an assignment from the travel operator, while the travel operator provides the traveling, accommodation and other touristic services directly. In Hungary, travel agencies and travel operators operate in a highly regulated industry. For Hungarian companies, government license is required, the management needs to possess certain qualifications and financial security needs to be provided (the latter for travel operators only). It is also possible to provide the concerned services without establishing a Hungarian company, i.e. in the form of cross-border services from another country in the EU, basically under the same conditions. Further investigation would be required on the conditions of buying non-EU and EU-travel packages by a Hungarian Travel Agency. For further details, kindly send me an email at .

    Yours sincerely,
    Julia Szarvas
