The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advises British nationals against all non-essential travel to Slovakia, based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks in the country.

This does not mean those already travelling in Slovakia must cut their visit short. However, anyone returning to the UK from Slovakia after 4:00 on September 26 must complete a passenger locator form and self-isolate upon their return.

The FCDO's travel advice is frequently updated depending on the current epidemiological situation so British nationals should regularly check the travel guidance section on their website.
