Category 1. People with permanent or temporary residence in a country that has been listed as epidemiologically safe (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.
Category 2. People entering the Republic of Slovenia, who are a resident of a country listed as having an unstable epidemiological situation (red list) or who arrive from such a country, shall be 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). The test should not be older than 48 hours. The test must be performed in a EU member state or Schengen Aossicated country by an organisation or individual that is recognised as suitable and credible. A list of recognised institutions is published on the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food website. Tests made by the mentioned institutions in third countries will be recognised.
Category 3. If a country is not on the list of epidemiologically safe or on the list of countries with an unstable epidemiological situation, it shall be considered that it has been included on the orange list.
