The Government Information Centre has announced that it has launched an information campaign along the migration routes.
The campaign targets countries where most of the migrants are coming from as well as the transit countries.
During the campaign activists hand out leaflets to migrants informing them of the criminal repercussions of crossing the Hungarian border illegally, which is a serious offense and punishable by imprisonment.
The leaflets warn migrants not to listen to smugglers when they tell them that crossing the border illegally is safe.
The aim of the information campaign is to reduce migratory pressure on Hungary. Earlier the year, several other EU countries also conducted similar campaigns among them Austria and Germany - wrote to the Government Information Centre.
