Rules and recommendations

When travelling from the Czech Republic to Slovakia, it is necessary to register and show proof of vaccination (one dose is sufficient until 8.8.2021). This can be proved by a covid pass or a national certificate with a QR code. Unvaccinated persons must be quarantined, with exceptions. This can be terminated after 14 days without a test, or upon receipt of a negative PCR test result no earlier than the 5th day of quarantine. Children under 18 years of age follow their parents' regimen.

A complete exception from these measures has, for example, international transport drivers and EU citizens who transit through Slovakia (within 8 hours).

Exceptions are also available to cross-border workers, students, artists. However, they must register and submit a negative PCR or antigen test that is not older than 7 days (i.e. a test already performed in the Czech Republic).

For travelling to a funeral, a negative PCR test not older than 72 hours (i.e. a test already performed in the Czech Republic) is sufficient in addition to registration.

More information can be found at the Czech embassy in Bratislava websites (only in Czech).

Before traveling to Slovakia, we recommend that you read the information on currently valid measures in the Slovak Republic, which are clearly published on the website of the Ministry of Health of the Slovak Republic and also on the Quarantine Measures and Travel website (only in Slovak).
