Crossing the state border during the coronavirus epidemic

Slovenia declared an epidemic on 12 March 2020 due to the growing number of coronavirus infections. In order to contain the spread of infection, many countries, including Slovenia, introduced changes in their border crossing regime. The Government of the Republic of Slovenia adopted an ordinance declaring the end of COVID-19 epidemic effective from 15 May. But since the risk of spreading COVID-19 still persists, the general and specific measures adopted pursuant to the decision on the application of measures under the Communicable Diseases Act will continue to apply. In this context, certain (temporary) restrictions of traffic are still valid not only on the border with Croatia, but also on the internal Schengen borders (with Italy, Austria and Hungary), where border controls were abolished back in 2007 after Slovenia joined the Schengen area. A few entry and exit requirements have also been changed for foreign nationals and Slovenian citizens.
