The National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ) closely monitors the epidemiological situation in Slovenia and globally, and prepares evaluations of the epidemiological situation in every single country. On the basis of those evaluations, the Government determines the lists of countries that are subject to the various measures that apply for entering Slovenia.

Green list of countries

Epidemiologically safe countries or administrative units of countries are included in the green list.

People with permanent or temporary residence in a country that has been added to the green list, and arriving from such countries, can enter Slovenia without restrictions or quarantine. It shall also be considered that a person is arriving from a country on a green list if they stayed in that country continuously for 14 days before entering Slovenia, which can be proven with a proper certificate.

Green list of countries (valid as of 12 October 2020):

–  Third countries:

  1. Australia
  2. New Zealand
  3. Serbia
  4. Uruguay

Orange list of countries

If a country is not on the list of epidemiologically safe (green list) or on the list of countries with an unstable epidemiological situation (red list), it shall be considered that it has been included on the orange list (all world countries that have not been included either on the red or on the green list).

Andorra, Monaco, San Marino and the Vatican are treated the same as the member states of the Schengen Area. If these countries are put on the orange list, they will be not treated as third countries. This means that citizens of these countries will be able to exercise their prerogative to enter Slovenia without quarantine and without submitting a negative test.

Entry from orange EU member states or the members of the Schengen Area

People arriving to the Republic of Slovenia from a EU member state or member of the Schengen Area that has been included on the orange list can enter Slovenia without restrictions or quarantine.

Entry from orange countries that are not EU member states or the members of the Schengen Area

People entering the Republic of Slovenia, who are a resident of a country on the orange list or who arrive from that country, shall be due to the potential infection with SARS-CoV-2 virus required to stay in quarantine for a period of ten days.

This quarantine shall not be ordered if a person, when crossing the border, submits a medical certificate proving that they have tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), which is not older than 48 hours and was performed in a EU member state, in a member of the Schengen Area, i.e. with an organisation or individual recognised by the Institute of Microbiology and Immunology and the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food as suitable and credible and have been published on the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food on its website. Tests made by the mentioned institutions in third countries will therefore be recognised.

Red list of countries

Countries with an unstable epidemiological situation or administrative divisions of countries are included on the red list.

People entering the Republic of Slovenia, who are a resident of a country on the red list or who arrive from that country, shall be due to the potential infection with SARS-CoV-2 virus required to stay in quarantine for a period of ten days.

The quarantine shall not be ordered if a person, when crossing the border, submits a medical certificate proving that they have tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), which is not older than 48 hours and was performed in a EU member state, in a member of the Schengen Area, i.e. with an organisation or individual recognised by the Institute of Microbiology and Immunology and the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food as suitable and credible and have been published on the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food website. Tests made by the mentioned institutions in third countries will therefore be recognised.

Servicing decisions on quarantine at the state border

Persons who will be ordered to quarantine will be able to enter Slovenia on any border crossing or checkpoint. Police officers collect the data required for the decision on quarantine to be issued from the person who is to be ordered to quarantine and send them to the representative of the Ministry of Health. The latter then issues the decision and returns it to the police officer located on the border crossing or the checkpoint. The police officer then serves the decision to the person ordered to quarantine before authorising his or her entry to Slovenia.

Persons who are not residents of Slovenia are ordered to quarantine at the address where they will actually stay. Any quarantine-related costs will be covered by the quarantined persons themselves. Foreign citizens who are not residents of Slovenia and cannot provide an address where they would stay in quarantine are not allowed entry into the country if appropriate quarantine accommodation capacities cannot be ensured.

Persons who intend to work in Slovenia shall be ordered to quarantine at the address stated in the employer’s certificate, submitted at the entry to Slovenia at the time of crossing the state border.

Testing is allowed during quarantine

A person who has been ordered to quarantine by way of a decision may test for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) during the quarantine. If they test negative, the competent authority will set aside the decision.
