The regime of crossing the common Ukrainian-Slovak border has been changed

From July 21, 2021, the regime of crossing the common Ukrainian-Slovak border was changed, namely:

– Citizens of Ukraine, holders of biometric passports, can enter the territory of the Slovak Republic in accordance with the general conditions of entry provided by the Schengen Borders Code (entry for a short stay of 90 days for 180 days).

– Citizens of Ukraine are obliged to undergo entry procedures (quarantine or other), determined by the current decision of the Department of Health of the Slovak Republic (taking into account the presence or absence of vaccination of citizens of Ukraine).

This means that:

1. Citizens of Ukraine who have a vaccination certificate (2 doses) (in English, Slovak or Czech) before entering are registered on the website and are released from self-isolation (the last vaccination must not be before 14 days). All vaccines registered by the WHO are accepted (this means that all vaccines are registered in Ukraine).

2. Unvaccinated persons are also registered on the website, but are obliged to undergo self-isolation for a period of 14 days (if during this time there are no symptoms or testing). Self-isolation can be stopped by obtaining a negative RT-PCR test performed no earlier than day 5.
