There is no difference in treatment with respect to reception based on nationality. All existing reception centres host different nationalities. There is no known policy for placing specific nationalities in certain reception centres. Upon the closure of the transit zones though, as per the HHC the Afghans, Iranians and Yezidi Kurds were placed to Balassagyarmat, while the others, mainly Iraqis were transferred to Vámosszabadi.
