In order to minimise the import of the Delta variant from abroad, and thus prevent it from spreading uncontrollably, the state re-introduced the regular border checks of people coming to the country.
Everybody coming from abroad is required to fill in the eHranica online form and show a confirmation of having done so during their border check. People entering the country via airports in Slovakia also have to fill in the form published on the Transport Ministry website, and have a negative test result when arriving from risky countries.
People who have not been fully vaccinated against Covid have to self-isolate and take a PCR test. Those vaccinated are required to show a certificate of vaccination and a confirmation of being registered with eHranica.
Cross-border commuters who are not vaccinated do not have to self-isolate, but they do need to show a negative test result when arriving in Slovakia.
