Covid-19: information on Slovenia's entry restrictions during the coronavirus epidemic

There are currently temporary travel restrictions on non-essential travel for citizens/residents of certain third countries, including Israel, at the external borders of EU/Schengen Member States, meaning that only certain categories of travellers could be authorised for entry. Exemptions from restrictions on travel to the EU are listed here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/live-work-travel-eu/coronavirus-response/travel-during-coronavirus-pandemic/exemptions-coronavirus-travel-restrictions_en

People entering Slovenia from red countries (including Israel) are required to remain in quarantine for a period of ten (10) days.

Individuals will not be ordered to quarantine if they present the following when crossing the border:
- a negative PCR test not older than 48 hours after taking the swab and performed in an EU Member State or a Schengen Area country;
- 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, provided that it has been issued in an EU Member State or a Schengen Area country, or
- a 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.

Foreigners who enter Slovenia must comply with the regulations that temporarily restrict the movement and gathering of people in order to prevent the spread of infection within the country (restriction of movement between regions with certain exceptions for which proof is required; restriction of movement between 22:00 and 5:00, etc.). You can see the list of restrictions here: https://www.gov.si/en/topics/coronavirus-disease-covid-19/measures-to-contain-the-spread-of-covid-19-infections/

Please note also that tourist accommodation facilities in Slovenia are currently closed.
