Due to the new virus variants, EU countries are significantly tightening their entry rules. From July 9th, all people who have not been fully vaccinated and entered Slovakia must be quarantined for at least five days.

A kindWe are worried about the new corona variant, and Slovakia is tightening its entry rules. From June 9th, all people who have not been fully vaccinated must be quarantined for 14 days. This is a new regulation issued by the governments of EU member states on Saturday. This applies regardless of the country of origin. The PCR corona test can be performed as early as the fifth day, and you can free yourself from isolation through this test. Passengers who have received the second vaccine for at least 14 days or a single dose of vaccine for at least 21 days are exempt from quarantine. Children under 12 years of age who have not been vaccinated will be subject to the same quarantine conditions as their parents.

This change caused disappointment, especially in the Czech Republic, because Slovakia, with its High Tatras, is very popular as a holiday destination in neighboring countries. For example, transit passengers who want to travel from Germany to Hungary via the Czech Republic and Slovakia are exempt from quarantine. However, you must stick to the planned road route.

At the same time, it is known that Slovakia is selling 160,000 doses of unused corona vaccine Sputnik V to Russia at a purchase price of approximately 8.40 euros per dose. The reason is that there is low interest in the vaccine, which has not yet been approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). So far, only 10,500 Slovaks have received the first dose of artificial satellites, and another 8,000 have registered for appointments. Disputes surrounding the satellite mission have led to a serious government crisis in Slovakia.
