Abstract

This paper investigates the cross-border mobility and migration phenomenon between Romania and Hungary. The research includes available data for 2010. It was based on direct observation and interviews with people involved in this process. The research has examined two main dimensions of the phenomenon of cross-border mobility. Firstly, we are speaking of the existence of a phenomenon of cross-border mobility of the commuting type of the labor force from Romania to Hungary, mainly for seasonal (agricultural) activities. Secondly, we are dealing with the cross-border mobility of Romanian citizens who have purchased homes in the border area in Hungary, but are working in Romania. Seasonal cross-border migration of the labor force in the border area between Romania and Hungary does not yet have a greater scale, but is present.
