The Government of the Republic of Slovenia adopted the Ordinance determining the conditions of entry into the Republic of Slovenia to contain and control Covid-19, which will enter into force on 13 February 2021.

New Exceptions

The new ordinance allows entry without quarantine and negative test also for persons who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 and persons who have recovered from Covid-19. These persons will have to produce certificates of testing or of vaccination.

The period of crossing the border is extended from eight to ten hours for persons who own or lease land in the border area or on both sides of the state border and cross the state border with a neighbouring country for the purpose of carrying out agricultural and forestry works and return to Slovenia within 10 hours of crossing the border.

There are no changes to other exceptions.

On the basis of the assessment of the epidemiological situation in individual countries or administrative regions, the government has determined the EU Member States or Schengen Area countries where the 14-day incidence of infection with SARS-CoV-2 per 100.000 people is higher than the 14-dan incidence in the Republic of Slovenia. The list of those countries, which shall be in force since 13 February, includes:

1. Czech Republic
2. Portugal

Regardless of the location and manner of entry, each traveller must meet the entry requirements in accordance with this ordinance.
