Hungary allowed people who provide close contact services such as hairdressers and beauticians to reopen their businesses on Wednesday.
Several other coronavirus-related measures have been relaxed after the central European country made progress in combating new infections and getting vaccine doses to residents.
Stores selling non-essential items were also allowed to open, but they are required to limit the number of customers to avoid overcrowding.
The nighttime curfew in Hungary now begins at 10 p.m. instead of 8 p.m. and continues until 5 a.m.
However, restaurants remain closed for in-person meals and hotels can only accommodate business travelers.
Interior Minister Sandor Pinter issued a decree outlining the new rules.
The decree refers to an earlier order from Prime Minister Viktor Orban that opening measures were to come into effect after 2.5 million people received at least a first vaccination against COVID-19.
Hungary reached that level on Tuesday, which means more than 25% of people have received at least one dose.
Under EU rules, a national government can issue a vaccine license in emergency situations.
