We advise you to check the restrictions and entry requirements before traveling to Slovenia
Crossing the border to Slovenia
People arriving from countries marked green can enter Slovenia without restrictions. This usually does not apply to passengers from third countries who travel due to non-urgent reasons which also include tourism. Prior to travelling, we recommend that you check the travel recommendations on the official websites of the countries from which you intend to travel.
Persons arriving from the countries or regions that are on the dark red or red list must quarantine for 10 days. As of 15 May, quarantine may be terminated after five days provided that the individual submits a negative PCR test. A quarantine of 10 days is not required to an individual who submits:
- A negative PCR test for COVID-19 that is not older than 48 hours according to the date of the swab taken and which was carried out in an EU Member State, a Schengen Area Member State, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland or the United States of America. When entering Slovenia, PCR tests done in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Israel or Russia are also valid. **

Travel announcement application "Enter Slovenia"
The Slovenian Police have developed a travel announcement application, "Enter Slovenia", which provides help to users when entering our country, especially with regard to understanding the exceptions. The application specifies the control points at which people can cross the border. Depending on the purpose of their travel to Slovenia, a user may complete a form with their personal data. The data is not saved after the form is generated and is automatically deleted. The user may print out this form or save it on their mobile phone or a tablet and show it at a border control point or a control point within Slovenia.
Covid-19 testing locations for foreign tourists
Mass testing for foreign citizens using free of charge rapid antigen tests is not possible; they can be tested only if they pay for the test. See in which locations foreigners can obtain payable tests, and check whether it is necessary to make an appointment in advance and what is required for your swab to be taken.
