Recently, there was a requirement to show confirmation of recovering from the disease no older than 90 days (or three months) as an alternative to a negative Covid test. The cabinet prolonged this period to 180 days (or six months) at its April 21 session, the TASR newswire reported.

The change comes after the Public Health Authority (ÚVZ) published an ordinance on new border rules, where it already mentioned the requirement to show confirmation of recovery from Covid no older than 180 days.

When the cabinet published new curfew rules last week, it stipulated the confirmation of recovery must not be older than 90 days.
