Quarantine

Self-isolation at own accommodation.

From 16 August 2021, anyone entering Slovenia via an airport or a ferry terminal will be required to complete a Digital Passenger Locator Form 24 hours before arrival to Slovenia. On completion of the form, passengers will receive a QR code which must be shown to the Border Police on entry to Slovenia. The Digital Passenger Locator Form can be found here.
Proof upon entry: a negative PCR test provided that no more than 72 hours have passed since the swab was taken, a negative rapid antigen test provided that no more than 48 hours have passed since the swab was taken, a certificate of recovery, a certificate of vaccination, European digital COVID certificate in digital or paper form, digital COVID certificate of third countries in digital or paper form.
A person who does not provide one of the above is referred to quarantine at home for a period of 10 days. In the case of a foreigner who is not resident in Slovenia, they may enter Slovenia and are sent to quarantine at home for 10 days if they provide unequivocal proof that they have a guaranteed place in which to undergo quarantine, otherwise entry to Slovenia will not be permitted.
Lifting quarantine: A person ordered to quarantine at home upon entering Slovenia may end quarantine early by producing a negative PCR test for the presence of SARS-CoV-2. Testing may only be performed from the fifth day of home quarantine.
Countries (or administrative units of countries) with an unstable epidemiological situation are included on the red list. Travellers entering Slovenia from these countries are required to remain in quarantine for a period of 10 days. Travellers from a “red” country will be exempted from the quarantine requirement if, when they cross the border, they present either: a negative PCR test for COVID-19 not older than 48 hours, a positive PCR test result older than 10 days and not older than 6 months, or a medical certificate of recovery from COVID-19 (if no more than 6 months have elapsed since the beginning of symptoms); a certificate of vaccination against COVID-19.

The entry without quarantine also applies to those who recovered from COVID-19 and who were vaccinated with at least one dose of an approved vaccine no later than 8 months after they tested positive with a PCR test, or contracted symptoms. Appropriate protection in this case is ensured immediately after the vaccination (on the day of vaccination). Accepted as an appropriate proof upon entry is a combination of:
proof of vaccination with at least one dose and a positive PCR test, or
proof of vaccination with at least one dose and a medical certificate of convalescence from Covid-19.
Entering this country without the EU Digital COVID certificate or with a certificate not compliant with national requirements.

The Police has launched a web application (Enter Slovenia) to facilitate travelling to Slovenia. It is intended for passengers travelling to Slovenia or entering the country in order to transit through its territory.

Prohibition on mass gatherings of people in public places
The movement of individuals in the territory of the Republic of Slovenia is not restricted; however, people are advised to consistently comply with all necessary protective measures.

By way of exception, only individual groups of up to 50 people may gather at the same place at the same time, but only if they can maintain the required safety distance; this has been allowed by a government ordinance. Similar restrictions apply to people gathering at certain public institutions, such as theatres and cinemas, where up to 50 individuals may attend individual events at the same time, provided that they keep the required safety distance and adhere to other protective measures.

In addition, accommodation providers with more than 30 rooms are open and available again, as are spa accommodations, wellness centres, gyms, swimming pools, and water activities. Until further notice, discos and night clubs remain closed, as do stores on Sundays and holidays, except for petrol stations and pharmacies, which may be open.

Caution and observance of protective measures are also mandatory when using public transport
In Slovenia, for the time being, the public transport system is fully adapted in order to reduce the potential risk of spreading infections between passengers.

It is mandatory for passengers, inter alia, to wear a protective mask or other means of protecting the nose and mouth area throughout the whole duration of the transport. However, special care must be taken to not touch one’s mask while wearing it, as this could lead
to contamination of one’s hands and the risk of spreading the infection to other passengers and objects in the vehicle. Passengers are to enter the bus through the second or back door with a valid ticket, and when entering the bus they must already be wearing a mask and must disinfect their hands, while always maintaining a distance of at least 1.5 meters between other passengers.

  • Slovenia Starting from Thursday, July 15, Slovenia will open its borders for all vaccinated travellers, those recovered from the virus and those who present a negative PCR test, Slovenian authorities announced.

    According to a press release issued by the government, the traffic light system will cease applying, and all travellers entering Slovenia will be subjected to the same requirement of presenting a vaccination certificate, a recovery certificate, or a negative test result issued by medical authorities.

    Travellers transiting through Slovenia and individuals engaged in freight and passenger transport are also subjected to the same rule, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

    For the vaccination certificate to be fully effective, the following rules must be applied:

    At least seven days have passed since the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine was taken by the traveller
    At least 14 days have passed since the second dose of the Moderna, Sputnik V, CoronaVac or Sinopharm vaccine was received by the traveller
    At least 14 have passed since the traveller got vaccinated with the single-shot Janssen vaccine
    At least 21 days have passed since the first dose of the Vaxzevriavaccine by AstraZeneca and Covishield vaccine by Serum Institute of India/AstraZeneca was administered to the traveller
    The authorities have also informed that the EU COVID-19 Vaccination Passport is also accepted as proof for travellers, granting them a quarantine free stay in Slovenia.

    “Also, there will be only two quarantine-free and no-test-required exceptions for entry into Slovenia: the exceptions apply to owners of property on both sides of the border, and children aged under 15 travelling with their parents or custodians,” the press release reads.

    The country successfully joined the EUDCC gateway by late June, starting to issue the document for its citizens in a bid to make it easier for travellers to move across Europe, as the EU jointly had agreed earlier this year.

    As SchengenVisaInfo.com previously reported, Slovenian authorities have abolished quarantine requirements for travellers worldwide, provided they present one of the aforementioned documents.

    Besides travellers vaccinated with the European Medicines Agency authorised vaccines, Slovenia also recognises CoviShield, COVID vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute of Indian, Sinopharm produced in China as well as Russian provided vaccine, Sputnik V.

    In June, authorities in Ljubljana decided to extend the validity of the negative PCR test from 48 to 72 hours after being tested for the virus. However, for those tested with a rapid antigen test (RAT), validity would remain 48 hours. More information https://safetravel.cc/SVN

    Slovenia has registered more than 257,875 positive cases of COVID-19 infection, and up to this point, 4,765 people have died due to Coronavirus related complications, according to the figures published by the World Health Organization. In the recent 48 hours, the Slovenia authorities haven’t reported any death related to COVID-19, but 12 new cases have been registered.

    *From Third Countries:

    All countries that are not explicitly listed on the red list are considered to be at low risk of infection. Travellers arriving from these countries (or their administrative units) may enter Slovenia without being subject to testing and quarantine requirements.

    Countries (or administrative units of countries) with an unstable epidemiological situation are included on the red list. Travellers entering Slovenia from these countries are required to remain in quarantine for a period of 10 days.

    Travellers from a “red” country will be exempted from the quarantine requirement if, when they cross the border, they present either:

    • a negative PCR test for COVID-19 not older than 48 hours, taken in an EU Member State, a Schengen Area Member State, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Israel or Russia, at category A checkpoints for international air transport (negative PCR test results issued in Serbia and Turkey are also recognised);
    • a positive PCR test result older than 10 days and not older than 6 months, or a medical certificate of recovery from COVID-19 (if no more than 6 months have elapsed since the beginning of symptoms);
    • a certificate of vaccination against COVID-19, which proves that:
      • at least 7 days have passed since the second dose of the Comirnaty vaccine by BioNTech/Pfizer,
      • at least 14 days have passed since the second dose of the vaccine by Moderna,
      • at least 21 days have passed since the first dose of the Vaxzevria vaccine by AstraZeneca,
      • at least 14 days have passed since the dose of the Janssen vaccine by Johnson & Johnson,
      • at least 21 days have passed since the first dose of the Covishield vaccine by the Serum Institute of India/AstraZeneca,
      • at least 14 days have passed since the second dose of the Sputnik V vaccine by Russia’s Gamaleya National Centre of Epidemiology and Microbiology,
      • at least 14 days have passed since the second dose of the CoronaVac vaccine by Sinovac Biotech,
      • at least 14 days have passed since the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by Sinopharm.

    The entry without quarantine also applies to those who recovered from COVID-19 and who were vaccinated with at least one dose of an approved vaccine no later than 8 months after they tested positive with a PCR test, or contracted symptoms. Appropriate protection in this case is ensured immediately after the vaccination (on the day of vaccination). Accepted as an appropriate proof upon entry is a combination of:

    • proof of vaccination with at least one dose and a positive PCR test, or
    • proof of vaccination with at least one dose and a medical certificate of convalescence from Covid-19.

    A person may enter Slovenia without any restrictions and the need to quarantine if he or she is to transit Slovenia within a 12-hour period.Transit within the 6-hour period applies to persons who are under quarantine orders issued by other states on account of their exposure to a person infected with Covid-19, who wish to spend their quarantine in another state and do not show any signs of infection.

    This means that passengers must exit Slovenia within this period and must travel through Slovenia without making unnecessary or redundant stops or leaving the main transit route. While transiting, passengers may attend to necessary things such as fill up the gas tank, stop for physiological needs (drink, food, toilet, etc.), but may not stay overnight.

  • Slovenia Slovenia’s Ministry of Interior has announced that traffic-related measures imposed at the border will remain effective due to the current Coronavirus situation.

    However, there could be some changes applied, based on the epidemiological situation in other countries, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

    Due to the Coronavirus situation, authorities in Slovenia have narrowed down the list of countries the citizens of which are permitted to enter the country, expanding the number of countries on the high-risk list, also known as the red list of countries that are profoundly affected by the virus, including all of its neighbouring countries.

    This means that travel to all countries on the red list is prohibited, except for any emergency cases, while the compulsory ten-day quarantine rule upon return from these countries cannot be ended with a test.

    After an increase in the number of Coronavirus infections, authorities in Slovenia reintroduced internal border controls in a bid to halt the spread of the deadly virus.

    Up to this point, Slovenia is the 64th most-affected country worldwide by the Coronavirus, with 225,950 cases of infection and 4,112 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic, Worldometers’ figures reveal.

    Persons Banned From Entering Slovenia
    According to Slovenia’s Ministry of Interior announcement, persons who have tested positive for the virus and those who show signs of infection (such as high fever, cough or shortness of breath) as well as those included on the COVID-19 red list, will not be allowed to enter the country.

    “If Slovenian citizens or foreign nationals obtaining a permanent or temporary address in Slovenia have been ordered to quarantine in another state, because they were exposed to a Covid-19 infected person, and wish to quarantine in Slovenia, they will be permitted to enter Slovenia,” the statement clarifies.

    Travellers are allowed to transit to Slovenia in order to reach another country if their stay in the country lasts six hours or less.

    Slovenia’s government has emphasised that checkpoints on international flight connections (Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, Maribor Edvard Rusjan Airport and Portorož Airport) and on global maritime connections (Koper and Piran border crossing points for international maritime traffic) are reopened.

  • Slovenia Latest News:

    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 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). Alternatively, the traveller must present a negative rapid test result that is not older than 24 hours. 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).

    *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).

    Internal Restrictions:
    *Moving around in Slovenia: since 15 February 2021, movement between municipalities and regions has been permitted. However, on 26 February 2021, the region of Obalno-kraška has been re-classified as red, which means that if you are in this region, you cannot travel to other regions. Further details can be found here (please note that this information is currently only available in the Slovene language)
    *Public spaces and further measures: Protective masks must continue to be worn in all indoor areas, and all outdoor public areas where you are unable to maintain 2 metres social distancing. In October 2020, the Slovenian authorities introduced a Red, Amber and Green rating system, to determine which additional COVID-19 prevention measures are in place within regions in Slovenia.
    The rules below apply to all regions in Slovenia except for the region of Obalno-kraška If you are in Obalno-kraška, you must follow the separate rules, which are listed in the following link (this is currently only available in the Slovene language), unless you meet one of the criteria outlined (which are also in the link).

    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 a valid travel document (also a visa or residence permit, when required) and a document proving the purpose and goal of transit (as of 14 July, only non-EU residents must submit a document proving the purpose and goal of transit; EU residents can submit a valid travel document).

    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 if they can provide when crossing the border, a medical certificate proving that they have tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). The test should not be older than 48 hours. The test 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).

  • Slovenia Latest News: Public transport to shut down, non-essential shops to close for 14 days as government tightens COVID-19 restrictions (Xinhua, 12.11.2020)

    International Restrictions:
    *From within the EU:

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

    Depending on their epidemiological situation, Slovenia divides countries into three categories. For each category, a different set of entry rules applies.

    Category 1. People with permanent or temporary residence in a country that has been listed as epidemiologically safe (the green list), and arriving from such countries, can enter Slovenia without restrictions or quarantine. It shall also be considered that a person is arriving from a country on a green list if they stayed in that country continuously for 14 days before entering Slovenia, which can be proven with a proper certificate.

    Category 2. People entering the Republic of Slovenia, who are a resident of a country listed as having an unstable epidemiological situation (red list) or who arrive from such a country, shall be required to stay in quarantine for a period of ten days.

    The quarantine shall not be ordered if a person, when crossing the border, submits a medical certificate proving that they have tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). The test should not be older than 48 hours. The test must be performed in a EU member state or Schengen Aossicated country by an organisation or individual that is recognised as suitable and credible. A list of recognised institutions is published on the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food website. Tests made by the mentioned institutions in third countries will be recognised.

    Category 3. If a country is not on the list of epidemiologically safe or on the list of countries with an unstable epidemiological situation, it shall be considered that it has been included on the orange list. People arriving to the Republic of Slovenia from a EU member state or member of the Schengen Area that has been included on the orange list can enter Slovenia without restrictions or quarantine.

  • Slovenia Latest News: Public transport to shut down, non-essential shops to close for 14 days as government tightens COVID-19 restrictions (Xinhua, 12.11.2020)

    International Restrictions:
    *From within the EU:

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

    Depending on their epidemiological situation, Slovenia divides countries into three categories. For each category, a different set of entry rules applies.

    Category 1. People with permanent or temporary residence in a country that has been listed as epidemiologically safe (the green list), and arriving from such countries, can enter Slovenia without restrictions or quarantine. It shall also be considered that a person is arriving from a country on a green list if they stayed in that country continuously for 14 days before entering Slovenia, which can be proven with a proper certificate.

    Category 2. People entering the Republic of Slovenia, who are a resident of a country listed as having an unstable epidemiological situation (red list) or who arrive from such a country, shall be required to stay in quarantine for a period of ten days.

    The quarantine shall not be ordered if a person, when crossing the border, submits a medical certificate proving that they have tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). The test should not be older than 48 hours. The test must be performed in a EU member state or Schengen Aossicated country by an organisation or individual that is recognised as suitable and credible. A list of recognised institutions is published on the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food website. Tests made by the mentioned institutions in third countries will be recognised.

    Category 3. If a country is not on the list of epidemiologically safe or on the list of countries with an unstable epidemiological situation, it shall be considered that it has been included on the orange list. People arriving to the Republic of Slovenia from a EU member state or member of the Schengen Area that has been included on the orange list can enter Slovenia without restrictions or quarantine.

    Documents you need to travel in Europe

    *Transit:

    Passengers are required to transit Slovenia within 12 hours from entering. Persons entering Slovenia in transit must have with them: Valid travel document (including a visa or a residence permit when required), a document on the purpose and destination of transit (as of 14.07.2020 this document is not required for travellers with a permanent or temporary residence in EU member states).

    Passengers can make necessary stops in transit (such as for refuelling and resting for physiological needs) but they cannot stay overnight.<br>Entry to Slovenia shall be denied to persons for whom it is foreseen that they may not be able to exit Slovenia due to measures in neighbouring countries.

    Transit within the 6-hour period applies to persons who are under quarantine orders issued by other states on account of their exposure to a person infected with Covid-19, who wish to spend their quarantine in another state and do not show any signs of infection.

    Additional information is available on the Police website

    *From Third Countries:

    Certain restrictions apply for crossing the state borders and these depend on the country from which you are arriving in Slovenia.

    Travellers from a selection of third countries that are considered epidemiologically safe can enter Slovenia without additional restrictions.

    A 10-day quarantine rule applies to all travellers arriving in Slovenia from countries with an unstable epidemiological situation, irrespective of their citizenship or residence.

    No quarantine is required for travellers who enter Slovenia and have a permanent or temporary residence in a country which is on the list of epidemiologically safe countries and are coming from those countries.
