The rules valid in Slovakia for people who arrive from abroad will be scrapped soon.

As of April 6, 2022, there will be no obligation to register an eHranica form anymore and no quarantine for unvaccinated people will apply.

“We still recommend being cautious, following one’s health conditions and in case of Covid symptoms, contacting a GP or pediatrician,” the Public Health Authority announced.

An ordinance on covering the upper airways covered with a respirator is also changing.

However, respirators will remain obligatory at mass events, whether indoors or outdoors. The Public Health Authority also reiterates that respirators are obligatory indoors – for example at offices, shops, workplaces, public transport and when travelling with people who are not members of the same household in taxis, cablecars and so on.
