Status cards attractive for non-Hungarians too

REGIONAL offices of the ethnic Hungarian Association for Common Goals (ZZSC) have registered 11,000 requests for the Hungarian 'status card' that Budapest has promised to Hungarians living abroad to prove their entitlement to financial and cultural advantages.

REGIONAL offices of the ethnic Hungarian Association for Common Goals (ZZSC) have registered 11,000 requests for the Hungarian 'status card' that Budapest has promised to Hungarians living abroad to prove their entitlement to financial and cultural advantages.

The ZZSC has forwarded them to the Hungarian embassy in Slovakia which is responsible for issuing the cards.

But it's not just ethnic Hungarians in Slovakia who have shown interest in the card since the controversial Law on Hungarians Living Abroad took effect January 1, 2002.

At the end of January an African man who is married to an ethnic Hungarian applied for the card in Košice. As a direct relative of a Hungarian, he has a right to the card.

Also in Košice, a woman withdrew her earlier request for the card after realising she was not Hungarian, but Jewish.
