Detailed Tourist Information

Slovenia has opened its borders to many of its European neighbours and some countries outside the EU with no need for quarantine. The list of countries fluctuates as the situation in individual countries improves or deteriorates.

There is no quarantine required for people coming from countries on Slovenia’s “green” list.

For people coming from countries on the “yellow” and “red” lists, the mandatory quarantine period has been reduced to 10 days.

Health checks are being conducted at all borders.

International air traffic to the Ljubljana Airport is now permitted. International flights to smaller airports will remain prohibited for the time being.

People with a negative PCR test and people vaccinated against COVID-19 are allowed to enter Slovenia without having to stay in mandatory quarantine.

For all current travel restrictions see the government website.

Travelers should note that the government has implemented a restriction of movement between municipalities, unless the Ordinance stipulates otherwise (there are exceptions for work, emergencies, etc). There is no date announced for this to end.

Restaurants, bars and cafés are closed, but pick up/delivery is permitted. The ban does not apply to catering activities in accommodation where catering activities may be carried out between 06.00 and 22.30, but only to guests staying in accommodation establishments.
