Antigen testing for foreigners arriving in Slovakia free of charge

Antigen testing for foreigners arriving in Slovakia free of charge

Antigen testing in Slovakia is free of charge for foreigners who come to the country, Health Ministry spokesperson Zuzana Eliašová said on Monday. Moreover, if foreigners come from a red country, in which case a PCR test is required eight days after arrival, this test is also free of charge for them.

Upon arriving in Slovakia from a green country, people must undergo 14 days of quarantine, which can be ended by a negative PCR test taken on arrival. People who have been vaccinated against COVID-19, who have overcome the disease within the past 180 days and children up to 18 years are exempted from mandatory self-isolation.

People coming from a red country will have to undergo 14 days of quarantine that can be ended by a negative PCR test, but not earlier than on the eighth day. Travellers entering from a black country will have to stay in quarantine for 14 days regardless of the result of the test.

All countries found neither on the green, nor the red list, have been defined as black. These countries have been affected by dangerous coronavirus variants or are linked with unavailable, non-credible or poor-quality data.

At the latest immediately upon entering the territory of the Slovak Republic, persons are obliged to register on this link and be able to provide evidence when requested of a confirmation of registration upon entry also during their stay in the territory of the Slovak Republic. If a person enters the territory of the Slovak Republic by air they must first fill in the form on this link.
