Slovakia has halted all civil flights from the UK and Northern Ireland as of the midnight of December 21, the Transport Ministry informed.

The measure will be valid for at least 72 hours. Cargo, humanitarian aid and rescue flights are exempt.

On Sunday, the Health Ministry declared all people travelling from the UK must quarantine upon arrival in Slovakia. This decision was made after a new strain of the coronavirus was discovered in the UK and the Republic of South Africa.

Obligatory quarantine

The quarantine is obligatory from December 21, 0:00, for all travellers arriving from the UK. Travellers can end their quarantine after they receive a negative RT-PCR test result, which should be taken on the fifth day after entering Slovakia.

Each citizen of the UK should register at http://korona.gov.sk/ehranica immediately after crossing the border, and, when asked by police officials, should be able to show he or she fulfilled the obligation.
