Latest News: Slovenian authorities lift border controls with Hungary; other COVID-19 restrictions continue (Schengen Visa Info , 25.05.2021). Authorities expand quarantine-free entry for persons vaccinated with Chinese and Indian vaccines (SVI, 28.04.2021).

International Restrictions:

*From within the EU:

Slovenia adopts its own national classification of risk areas, hence travel restrictions for Slovenia are not based on the common "EU Traffic Lights" map.

Travellers from countries that are NOT explicitly named on the "red" list can enter Slovenia without quarantine or negative test result requirement. A person is considered to be coming from a country if he/she has stayed in that country continuously for 14 days before entering Slovenia (which can be proven by a proper certificate).

Is a coronavirus test required?

Travellers from countries on the "red" list are subject to the requirement for a pre-departure negative COVID-19 test.
The test must be taken within 48 hours prior to arrival (PCR).

All tests must be performed in an EU Member State or Schengen Associated Country by a recognised institution (a list is published on the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food website).

  • 7 days before arrival for Biontech/Pfizer,
  • 14 days before arrival for Moderna,
  • 21 days before arrival for AstraZeneca.

Is a quarantine required?

Travellers from countries on the "red" list who do not provide a pre-departure negative COVID-19 test must complete a 10-day quarantine.

Documents you need to travel in Europe

Health cover for temporary stays *Transit:

As a general rule, passengers in transit in the EU+ area are exempted from temporary travel restrictions.

EU citizens entering the EU from a third country, as well as their family members, irrespective of their nationality, are exempted from the travel restrictions regardless of whether or not they are returning to their country of nationality or residence.

Passengers travelling from a non-EU country to another non-EU country may transit through the international transit area of airports located in the Schengen area. Rules regarding airport transit visa requirements continue to apply.

Additionally, for Slovenia, the following rules apply:

Transit means that a person must leave Slovenia within 6 hours and their travel must be without unnecessary and redundant stops and without leaving the transit route. Travellers can make stops for refuelling and rest for physiological needs, but they cannot stay overnight.

A person in transit must carry valid documentation that proofs that he/she can enter the country of destination (for example, a residence permit, an invitation from the employer to return to work). The traveller must also be included in the transit records. 

Entry to Slovenia shall not be permitted to anyone for whom it is envisaged that they will be unable to exit the territory of Slovenia due to the measures in force in neighbouring countries.

*From Third Countries:

Travellers from countries that are NOT explicitly named on the "red" list can enter Slovenia without quarantine or negative test result requirement. A person is considered to be coming from a country if he/she has stayed in that country continuously for 14 days before entering Slovenia (which can be proven by a proper certificate).

Is a quarantine required?

Travellers who are a resident in a country listed as having an unstable epidemiological situation (the "red" list), or who arrive from such a country, shall be required to stay in quarantine for a period of 10 days.

Is a coronavirus test required?

The quarantine is not imposed on travellers from the "red" list when they provide a medical PCR test result that is not older than 48 hours proving that they have tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). All tests must be performed in an EU Member State or Schengen Associated Country by a recognised institution (a list is published on the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food website).
