The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic reiterates the recommendation not to travel to any country in the world.
Today (April 30, 2020), the Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic, Ivan Korčok, took part in a telephone call with the Secretary-General of the North Atlantic Alliance, Jens Stoltenberg. They primarily discussed the priorities which the new government of the Slovak Republic is to fulfil during its mandate in the area of security and defence. Secretary-General Stoltenberg greatly appreciated the contribution of the Slovak Republic to NATO’s actions in the world. “The Secretary-General specifically acknowledged the excellent work of our soldiers in Latvia, Iraq and Afghanistan. He highlighted their professionalism and commitment,” stated Minister Korčok.
Based on the decision of Miroslav Lajčák, Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic, the diplomatic missions of the Slovak Republic abroad are registering information about citizens who are currently staying abroad and are interested in returning to Slovakia. Since the telephone lines are permanently occupied, we recommend registering electronically. (When registering it is necessary to state one’s identification and contact details, and the reason why one is staying abroad.)
The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic recommends that the citizens of the Slovak Republic not travel to any country of the world.
