Crossing the state border during the coronavirus epidemic

After resurgence of coronavirus cases, the Government again declared an epidemic in the entire territory of Slovenia on 19 October 2020. A special border-crossing regime was set up early in March 2020, soon after first infections were reported, in order to contain the progress of the novel virus. Traffic-related measures, some of them temporary, were introduced at the border with Croatia and on the internal Schengen border (with Italy, Austria and Hungary) and border entry/exit restrictions were put in place for foreign nationals and Slovenian citizens. All of these restrictions continue to be valid and change depending on the assessment of the epidemiological situation.
