Travel Recommendation: Grade 3 – Recommendation Not to Travel | All Countries of the World | COVID-19

16.3.2020 | Oznamy a upozornenia pred cestovaním | Koronavírus 2019-nCoV

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.

 

In light of the dynamic spread of the pandemic associated with the COVID 19 infectious disease caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in all the countries of the world, strict restrictive security and health measures are being taken. These include entry restrictions or entry bans to countries and state border crossings; these restrictions and bans are relevant for the functioning of international but also national air traffic, trains, buses and ship lines.

 

Since it is unforeseeable what measures will be taken by the countries of the world, the citizens of the Slovak Republic, should they leave Slovakia and travel abroad, risk finding that their return to Slovakia is either impossible or restricted.

 

On March 15, 2020, the Public Health Authority of the Slovak Republic issued Measure No.: OLP/2595/2020 which, based on the Decision of the Government of the Slovak Republic, has made more rigorous the measures adopted during this extraordinary situation. One such measure stipulates that all persons who return in groups from afflicted areas abroad, as of 16 March 2020, shall remain in isolation in facilities determined by the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic, for the period of 14 days.

 

Citizens may find updated information at the following websites:

The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic recommends that all citizens who are staying currently abroad make use of the option to register voluntarily at the website of the MFA SR or via the Svetobežka mobile app.
