The government of North Macedonia has decided that nationals of North Macedonia and foreigners with regulated temporary or permanent residence can enter North Macedonia by presenting a valid negative PCR test not older than 72 hours upon entrance, and by signing a declaration for a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine, the ministry said in a press release.

All citizens, including nationals of North Macedonia or foreigners who will not present a valid PRC test, will be sent to a 14-day state quarantine, said the press release.

"Foreign nationals can transit through the territory of North Macedonia and the transit time must be realized in a maximum of five hours and they need to fill in statement upon their entry and exit from the territory," it added.

In mid-March, North Macedonia's authorities decided to close all border crossings in an effort to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Skopje International Airport was closed for passenger flights on March 18.
