State Border Control 8 November 2021

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. Temporary and border entry/exit restrictions were put in place for foreign nationals and Slovenian citizens.


As of 19 February 2022 restrictions due to Covid-19 no longer apply when entering Slovenia. This means that the RVT (recovered/vaccinated/tested) condition no longer has to be met at the border and travellers will no longer be ordered to quarantine at home. Tourist accommodation facilities in Slovenia are opened. Transit through Slovenia is also possible, without restrictions. More information: Transit through Slovenia to another country – explanation

As of 31 May 2022 measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 infections are no longer required. Though, in order to prevent infections, foreign nationals entering Slovenia should follow the reccomendations, such as wearing face masks, using hand disinfectants etc. Tourists are subject to the same measures as the population of Slovenia. For more information see the government web site Coronavirus disease COVID-19

Planning a journey abroad? Because the risk of infection with COVID-19 is still present, it is recommended that, upon planning the journey abroad, you monitor the epidemiological situation along the intended route, check the entry requirements of the destination country and take into account the decisions of local authorities.
