Detailed Tourist Information

Travellers from countries that are NOT explicitly named on the “red” list (https://www.gov.si/en/topics/coronavirus-disease-covid-19/border-crossing/) 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).

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.

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).
