Having a credencial issued for the Hungarian route is not obligatory, but it is recommended. Pilgrims holding a Credencial can collect stamps from the albergues, churches and towns he or she passes by and it also serves as a certification that the pilgrim is on the Saint Jabob's Way on foot or by bike. By showing the Credencial you will be entitled to a discounted price on recommended accommodations, pilgrim's menus and when arriving in Lébény you will be issued a Certificate of completion at the Pilgrim's Office in Lébény. You will need to collect stamps in your Credencial in each town of the Saint Jabob's Way - at least starting from Pannonhalma - in order to be awarded the Certification of Completion.
The fee for the Hungarian Credencial is HUF 700. We issue invoices on the Credencials.
Credencials can be requested on behalf of others by providing their names and official addresses.
Each Credencial has a serial number and a starting stamp.
Credencials can be requested in person at one of the Pilgrim's Offices (which is operated together with our partners, but is not owned by the Association).
