Update as of 19.7.2021: Rules regarding arrivals from abroad
Dear clients, please note that due to current pandemic restrictions, rules regarding travelling to the Slovak Republic from abroad are getting stricter. From 19th July, new Decree no. 231/2021 becomes effective and specifies measures regarding public health endangering and quarantine obligations for individuals coming to the territory of the Slovak Republic.
Every person who enters Slovakia from abroad is obliged to register on the website: korona.gov.sk through the “eHranica” form. This applies to everybody, including vaccinated individuals, but these don’t have to self-quarantine. The forms are checked by the police at the borders so please plan some extra time for your journey in case it should take a bit longer to wait at the borders.
Every person who comes to Slovakia has to self-quarantine for 14 days if they don’t have any Covid-19 symptoms and if they are not tested during the quarantine. However, the quarantine can end also sooner – after a negative RT-PCR test, but this can be done only on the 5th day of the quarantine at the earliest. To book the test, please visit the website: korona.gov.sk. In addition, children aged 0-12 years don’t have to get tested and their quarantine ends when it does for other members of their household (if they don’t have any Covid-19 symptoms), i.e. on the 14th day of the quarantine or after other household members (e.g. parents or older siblings) get RT-PCR tested negatively.
Every vaccinated individual needs to show their vaccination ID GreenPass or National vaccination certificate with a QR code, or another document in the Slovak, Czech or English language to prove they have been vaccinated in a non-European country.
The mandatory quarantine applies also to other household members who have not travelled. E.g. if you decide to spend your quarantine at your friends in Slovakia, they have to quarantine with you. Without testing, it has to take 14 days. If such individuals decide to get tested, they can do so no sooner than on the 5th day and after they receive an SMS about their negative test result, their quarantine can end.
Quarantine is not mandatory for children aged 12-18 years if nobody else in their household has to self-quarantine (applies temporarily until 9.8.2021), e.g. if such person has made a trip, has been in a summer camp or has stayed somewhere else.
Every individual who cannot get vaccinated due to health reasons has to prove it with a medical certificate based on the template annexed to the Decree and must present their negative result of an RT-PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before. For more exceptions, please see Decree no. 231/2021.
Fully vaccinated individuals don’t have to self-quarantine. A fully vaccinated individual is a person who:
a) has been vaccinated against COVID-19 with the second dose of a two-dose vaccine and at least 14 days but not more than 12 months passed since the vaccination, or
b) has been vaccinated against COVID-19 with a single-dose vaccine and at least 21 days but not more than 12 months passed since the vaccination, or
c) has been vaccinated against COVID-19 with one dose and at least 14 days but not more than 12 months passed since the vaccination, and if the vaccine was received within 180 days after overcoming COVID-19.Interim provision
Everybody who was vaccinated against COVID-19 until 9th July 2021 and comes to Slovakia until 2.8.2021 6:00am can end their self-quarantine after a negative RT-PCR test which can be done on the 1st day of the isolation. After a negative test result, children aged 0-12 years from the same household can end their quarantine as well, without having to get tested, but only if they don’t have any COVID-19 symptoms.
For more quarantine exceptions, please read the Decree. We will keep following all changes and new measures and updating you about them through this website.
Thank you for your loyalty. See you soon.
