“Considering the favourable development of the pandemic situation in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, negotiations with Austria on cancelling of stricter (police) controls at border crossings with Slovakia have been successful,” the Foreign Affairs Ministry informed. It is still possible to cross the border solely at the official border crossings, the ministry added.
Medical patrols carried out by members of the Austrian army have been maintained to the extent operatively determined by Austria. When planning a trip, it is still necessary to take possible time delays into account.Read more
“The Austrian police and the armed forces at the borders are equipped with QR code scanners and they can verify these confirmations and acknowledge them,” the ministry noted.
The Jarovce-Kittsee border crossing has renewed its non-stop operation.
The Moravský Svätý Ján – Hohenau border crossing is open between 5:00 and midnight. Záhorská Ves - Angern an der March is open Monday through Friday between 8:00 and 11:00 and again between 15:00 to 18:00, but only for agriculture and forestry work.
