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 Schengen Member States, meaning that only certain categories of travellers could be authorised for entry. Exemptions from restrictions on travel to the EU/Schengen are listed here:

Israel is on Slovenia's Red list of countries. People entering the Republic of Slovenia, who are a resident of a country on the red list or who arrive from that country, shall be required to stay in quarantine for a period of ten days. Upon entry into Slovenia, they will have to provide an address where they will stay in quarantine, which has to fulfil requirements of the Recommendation of the National Institute of Public Health regarding accommodation premises for quarantining.

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), which is not older than 48 hours and was performed in a EU member state, in a member of the Schengen Area, i.e. with an organisation or individual recognised by the Institute of Microbiology and Immunology and the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food as suitable and credible and have been published on the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food website. Tests made by the mentioned institutions in third countries will therefore be recognised. The list of institutions is available here:
