Antigen or PCR Testing for Returning Home

If you need to get tested for your journey home, whether it is required by the airline or for re-entry into the U.S. we will help you schedule that at the most convenient location possible, at the appropriate time. For re-entry to the US you need to have a negative result from a Covid-19 viral test taken no more than one day before your arrival. Since May 12 2021, the CDC have approved Antigen tests for travel. Antigen tests are quicker (results in 30 minutes, not 24 hours) and cheaper (around 1/3 the price or less) than PCR tests and often more readily available. If you are flying direct back to the US, the only test you’ll need is an Antigen test. If you are transferring in another country on the way back to the US other requirements may apply. We advise to check with the airline in this case.

General COVID-19 measures to be aware of

Unless otherwise stipulated, a limit of one person per 15 square metres applies to establishments (restaurants and bars, hotels and accommodation, stores, cinemas, fitness and wellness etc.). This limit does not include children up to an age of 10 years accompanied by an adult. If the sales space devoted to customers is smaller than 15 m2, maximum one customer may be present in the establishment.Other restrictions depend on the current “color” of the district visited (Slovakia uses the traffic light system within the country so the rules in Bratislava might be different from the rules in Kosice). More info at: .

  • maintain physical distance (2 meters)
  • maintain hand hygiene and disinfection (we will provide a personal bottle of hand sanitiser to you upon arrival)
  • we will provide one disposable mask per day of your vacation for as long as face masks are mandatory
