Slovakia has eased its travel restrictions to allow vaccinated UK holidaymakers test-free entry.

Unvaccinated Brits aren’t able to go directly to Slovakia, but they can travel over the border from Hungary, Poland, Austria or the Czech Republic, or fly to Slovakia from another Schengen country.

Unvaccinated arrivals might need to self-isolate for five days. They have the option to take a free PCR test instead, but the Slovak Government is warning arrivals that they might have difficulty getting an appointment.

Vaccinated tourists and those with proof they’ve recently recovered from COVID, plus those who are transiting Slovakia for less than eight hours are exempt from the mandatory five-day self-isolation period.

All visitors over the age of 12 years and two months must fill in a Passenger Locator Form and a health questionnaire.
