Slovenia has implemented a color-coded three-tier system for assigning restrictions on travel from foreign countries based on their levels of COVID-19 activity. This does not apply to Slovenian citizens or residents unless they come from a Red Listed country.
Green List Countries - can enter Slovenia without restrictions.
Orange List Countries - if EU-country, can enter Slovenia with no restrictions. If non-EU country, a mandatory 10-day quarantine is required.
Red List Countries - must quarantine for 10 days on entry unless they can present a negative Covid-19 test taken 48 hours before travel.
Note - in some countries, only certain regions are on the "Red List". These countries are categorized under "Special Conditions" in our system.

Mask is required to be worn in all public indoor, public transport and certain outdoor areas where social distancing is not possible.
Authorities in Slovenia have declared a 30-day state of emergency nationwide Oct. 19 due to an increase in coronavirus disease (COVID-19) infection rates. This enables officials to significantly tighten restrictions for the duration of the state of emergency. New measures are being introduced from Oct. 20 include:
A 2100-0600 curfew restricting movement outside the home to reasons of work, urgent family assistance, and emergencies.
A ban on movement between regions excluding for work, healthcare, and emergency situations.
The limit on public gatherings of people from different households is reduced from 10 to six individuals.
A ban on all public events and religious ceremonies.
Previously authorities categorized the country's regions based on the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Red areas denote a high risk and orange areas denote a moderate risk. Currently, Goriska, Coastal-Karst, and Primorsko-Notranjska regions are designated moderate-risk; all other regions are designated high-risk areas.
In high-risk areas, gyms and other fitness facilities are closed, as are bars and restaurants except for takeout services. Facemasks are mandatory in indoor and outdoor public spaces nationwide, unless engaged in individual exercise activities such as cycling and running.
Airlines & Transport
Domestic public transport operations have resumed, though the requirement for strict hygiene and social distancing means service disruptions are likely.

The dazzling country of Slovenia officially reopened its borders for tourism to select countries in the beginning. First, by allowing EU nations to visit as of June. In addition, Slovenia continued to relax its restrictions to welcome more tourists from third-party countries in July.
Which Countries Are Allowed To Visit Slovenia?
Slovenia has developed a ‘traffic light’ color-coded system that divides countries into different entry requirements based on risk. Slovenia divided it into three categories: red, yellow, and green.
GREEN: Firstly, all tourists coming from countries under the green list can enter Slovenia without any tests or quarantine.
YELLOW: Slovenian nationals coming from countries under the yellow list can enter Slovenia without quarantine. However, tourists arriving from these countries can enter Slovenia but are subject to a 10-day quarantine period.
RED: All arrivals, and that is to say both tourists and nationals, coming from countries under the red list must complete 14-day quarantine in order to enter Slovenia.
All countries that are not on the green list are on the yellow list.
Entry to Slovenia is based on residency and physical location for the last 14-days. That is to say, that tourists must be a permanent resident of one of those countries and should also be arriving in Slovenia from one of those countries.
Are There Mandatory Testing and/or Quarantine?
At this time, Slovenia is not requiring a mandatory COVID-19 test on arrival. However, passengers should expect a health screening from a border officer, as well as agree to temperature scans. In addition, tourists who show any symptoms may not be granted entry.
Slovenia is making some exceptions to the 10-day quarantine for travelers coming from the yellow and red country lists.
That is to say, most of the exceptions are only on essential workers, family reunification, funerals, medical reasons, students, etc. The isolation period will no longer apply to those with a negative COVID-19 PCR test that's taken no older than 36 hours.
Latest Update - Beginning Sept. 14, Slovenia will reduce the quarantine duration for arriving passengers. Instead of 14 days, travelers arriving from countries as “medium risk” and “high-risk” should self-isolate for only 10 days.
