New limitations regarding entry and exit from Slovenia
The Republic of Slovenia has introduced new limitations regarding entry and exit from Slovenia. New limitations are in place between 29 March and 12 April.
Entry to Slovenia
There are no changes for the three general border crossing exceptions. Persons, coming from countries or administrative units of countries on the red list, shall be ordered to quarantine at home for 10 days, unless upon entering the Republic of Slovenia they present:
- a negative PCR test for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 not older than 48 hours after taking the swab;
- a certificate of a positive PCR test result for SARS-CoV-2 which is more than 21 days old but not more than six months old or a medical certificate confirming that the person has recovered from COVID-19 and that more than six months have elapsed since the onset of symptoms; or
- proof of COVID-19 vaccination demonstrating that at least seven days have elapsed since the second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, at least 14 days since the second dose of the Moderna vaccine or 21 days since the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
PCR test certificates and medical certificates referred to in point 2 are taken into account if they have been issued in an EU Member State or a Schengen Area country. Certificates issued in Iran are no longer acceptable.
Entry from any red-listed country without the mandatory quarantine shall be among others allowed to persons posted to carry out tasks in international transport, persons engaged in trade who carry out the transport of goods or persons into the Republic of Slovenia, persons transiting the territory of the Republic of Slovenia and exiting the Republic of Slovenia within 6 hours of entry and persons with diplomatic passports.
Mandatory quarantine may not be prematurely terminated.
Exit from Slovenia
Travel to countries or administrative units of countries on the red list is prohibited for persons residing in the Republic of Slovenia, except for certain exceptions, such as persons who have recovered from COVID-19 or have been vaccinated.
