There is a national list of safe countries of origin (see section on Safe Country of Origin).

Following the Taliban take-over in Afghanistan in August 2021, almost 500 former NATO co-workers and their families were flown to Hungary in the rescue operation. The rescued Afghan citizens were not subject to the asylum procedure, but were instead channelled in the alien policing procedure (residence permit for other purposes, i.e. humanitarian purposes).
