Starting on November 16 at 7:00, Slovakia adopts the European (ECDC) methodology to deem countries risky and less risky.

People coming from the states not on the green list need to follow certain rules if they plan to spend their time on Slovak territory.

One of the basic conditions is that everybody (including tourists) needs to register at korona.gov.sk, and start home isolation, with some exceptions.

There are certain differences for people coming from EU and non-EU countries not on the green list.

List of low-risk countries

From November 26, 2020:

  • Australia

  • China

  • Finland

  • Iceland

  • Ireland

  • Japan

  • New Zealand

  • Norway

  • Singapore

  • South Korea

  • Taiwan
