Cross-border workers who are not vaccinated against Covid-19 will not have to self-isolate after entering Slovakia starting September 1.

Under the previous rules, every cross-border commuter older than 12 years of age needed to register with the eHranica online form and have a negative PCR test result no older than 7 days. This rule will expire on September 1.

After September 1, cross-border commuters who are not fully vaccinated will be allowed to enter Slovakia and avoid self-isolation if they present a negative PCR test result no older than 7 days. They will also have to register with eHranica once a month.

Fully vaccinated cross-border commuters will not be required to show a negative test result but they will need a certificate of vaccination (either EU Digital Covid Certificate or a certificate in English, Slovak or Czech). They will be required to register with eHranica once every six months just like other fully vaccinated incomers.

These rules apply if the cross-border commuters visited the EU countries, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Switzerland or Ukraine in the past 14 days only.

The respective ordinance of the Public Health Authority came into force on August 30.
