Slovakia is beginning to relax its travel restrictions. Slovak nationals, their family members, and residents of Slovakia may travel to Slovakia from anywhere, while anyone who has been allowed to enter another Schengen member state, and thus is already present in the Schengen zone, can enter Slovakia for any purpose of travel.
Additionally, foreign travelers may now also enter the country if they are arriving from and have only been in a select "green list" of countries for the last 14 days. As of November 16, travelers who have spent the last 14 days in only the following countries/territories may enter Slovakia, without needing a COVID-19 test or quarantine: Australia, China, Finland, Greece, Iceland, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, South Korea, and Taiwan.
The updated "green list" may be found here.
Travelers arriving from countries outside of the green list and/or EU will have to comply with varying quarantine/testing protocols depending on where they are traveling from and have spent time within the last 14 days.
All travelers must complete the Public Health Passenger form at least 24 hours before departure to Slovakia.
Travelers who have been physically present only in the above-mentioned "green list" countries for the prior 14 days are not subject to any restrictions or requirements when entering Slovakia.
Travelers who have been in the EU but in countries not on the "green list" may avoid a quarantine by presenting at the border a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test that is less than 72 hours old and was taken outside of Slovakia.
Travelers who have only been present in countries on the "green-list" for 14 days prior to travel are exempt from quarantine.
Those arriving from countries in the EU that are not on the "green list" must either provide a valid PCR test, or self-isolate on arrival.
Those arriving from countries outside of the EU that are not on the "green list" must self-isolate on arrival.
Travelers entering quarantine must register online at https://korona.gov.sk/en/ehranica/, who will contact them after at least 5 days to arrange a RT-PCR test for COVID-19. If travelers are self-isolating at a private residence, anyone living in the same household must also self-isolate. After the traveler receives a negative test result, they may end their self-isolation.
Children under three years old must remain in home quarantine for 10 days, and all members of the household must be asymptomatic during this time.

Pros: "Got to destination safe and sound and was thankful for that!"
Cons: "Boarding was messy. Food was ick- "chicken" tasted like a grade d boiled chicken nugget, terrible texture. Ladies on flight were kind, although not terribly helpful. Movie selection was pretty small and lots of Rated R movies, hard to find anything in the middle (not kids, but not adult)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but due to efforts of the pilot we were on time!"
Pros: "arrived early"
Pros: "snacks plus they had sparkling mineral water"
Pros: "they asked me if I wanted an upgrade to business class - nice"

Cons: "We booked Austrian Airlines to Kosice for 6 to play a concert for 3,000 on Thursday night. 4 of our group arrived from ZRH; 2 from LHR. LHR-VIE was late; we ran and arrived in time catch VIE-KSC before it left, but Austrian Air would not allow us to board, despite that the other part of our travel party was already on the plane and alerted both gate staff and on-board staff we were coming and wee had to play a show that night with Arch Enemy. We had to wait 10 hours in VIE & given €12 for food. AA cited "rotational issues". Shockingly, Austrian Air delayed the 2nd flight by another hour "to wait for someone". We had to cancel the show. Really angry"

Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant, calm, and efficient."
Pros: "Good movie selection on flight"
Cons: "Got bumped from the seat I reserved after boarding without explanation and when I explained I was traveling with a group was simply told that's too bad. Their customer service is awful and had already submitted a complaint for a return flight which was never followed up on."
Pros: "food was fine"
Cons: "to small seats"
Pros: "The plane itself was ok, the food also was ok."
Cons: "As usual, boarding in Miami airport is awful which is not exactly coming from austrian airlines, but they also took part in the unpleasant experience. The announcements were badly articulated, the boarding time was delayed and so on. Onboard, part of the crew completely refused to speak english."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed leaving Sofia which made connecting flights for many people a rush and very stressful. People were pulled to the front of the plane and told to rush to catch their flights. My bag didn't make my connecting flight but Austrian delivered it 2 days later."
Cons: "No soap in the toilets"
Pros: "Service was spectacular. The United crew was awesome."
Pros: "Everything seemed all right"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I was rebooked to another airline. Terrible customer service too, polite and sorry, but only repeating their statements over and over again."
Pros: "The entire experience was a joy. I was upgraded to business class and the difference was noticeable. I was comfortable and suffered no ill effects after. Much different that my trip home."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like"
Cons: "Seat was small and narrowed with no leg room at all Worst I've ever seen"
Pros: "Crew was nice, plane was new and clean, flight was safe with no issues"
Cons: "Plane was so small, I had a feeling I was on a low cost carrier in Europe. Even carry on couldn't fit above in the bins. This is very disappointing for an airline that used to be great. That plane was like the bottom level of the Titanic where people were squizzed in. Upon arrival in Vienna getting off the plane we had to take the stairs and the bus to the terminal - that's how small the plane was. Just awful."
Pros: "Overall the flight was better than most. The crew was friendly, competent and as attentive as coach allows these days. I appreciated the attendant who asked the man in front of me to put his seat back up during the meal. The little red pillows were great - big enough to be useful and comfortable. Although we chose not to watch a movie, we were impressed with the offerings. Comfort on a long flight in coach is a thing of the past but we knew that when we chose to fly that class."
Cons: "Most of the crew was great (hence the five star rating) and the flight in general was at least on a par with competitive airlines but we did have an unpleasant encounter with a young man who we were told was the purser. When my husband asked about what seemed to us like a very high level of security (including dogs on the gangway as we boarded the plane), this young man replied in a very condescending manner,"It's America. You tell me". Well, we are Americans, not always in agreement with our country's actions and attitudes, but that comment was needlessly dismissive and hostile."
Pros: "Great plane good price for plane ticket."
Pros: "Everything was very good with an exception of being very tight space wise"
Cons: "no leg room, tight rows"
Pros: "The staff were kind"
Cons: "The seat was worn down and very uncomfortable. The screen was super tiny and terrible quality. Everything was caked in old dirt"
