The end of the epidemic

As of 15 September, passengers entering Slovenia without referral to the quarantine must submit a certificate of compliance with the recovered-vaccinated-tested rule (RVC), which must also be complied with by all employees as well as users of services or activities (exceptions apply).

Here are some cases where the conditions of the recovered-vaccinated-tested rule (RVC) must be met:

  • Wellness, hairdressing and beauty services
  • Service stations
  • Public transport
  • Religious buildings and cultural institutions
  • Shops
  • Healthcare services
  • Congress activities and business meetings
  • Events

The provider must verify if the consumer meets the recovered-vaccinated-tested rule (RVC) before they enter the indoor spaces of gastronomy facilities, accommodation facilities, convention or trade fair premises, as well as casinos.

The recovered-vaccinated-tested requirements do not apply to children up to 18 years of age (at cultural and sports events, children up to 15 years of age) who are accompanied by close family members or guardians.

 

Use of protective mask:

The use of a protective mask is mandatory when moving and staying in all enclosed public places or spaces, as well as in open public places if it is not possible to provide a distance of at least 1.5 metres, and in personal vehicles.

In any other case, the use of face masks in enclosed public spaces remains mandatory. It is necessary to ensure a social distance of 1.5 metres outdoors. If that is not possible, the use of face masks is mandatory.

Notwithstanding the encouraging sedation, the risk of spreading still exists, so distance, hand hygiene and coughing should be strictly observed and patients should be isolated.

Entry requirements

1.1. Unified conditions of entry for passengers

A person may enter Slovenia without being required to quarantine at home if they present:

  • a negative PCR test for COVID-19 that is not older than 72 hours according to the date of the swab taken.

    The PCR test is adequate if it is performed in the Member States of the European Union, the Member States of the Schengen area, Australia, Israel, Canada, New Zealand, Russia, Serbia, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland or the United States of America, and also at check points on air links for international air transport if it is performed in Turkey.

  • a negative RAT test result not older than 48 hours from the time the swab was taken

    The RAT test is adequate if it is performed in the Member States of the European Union, the Member States of the Schengen area, Australia, Israel, Canada, New Zealand, Russia, Serbia, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland or the United States of America, and also at check points on air links for international air transport if it is performed in Turkey, and is listed in the common list of rapid antigen tests published. The HAG tests of all the manufacturers on the list are adequate, regardless of whether they are marked yellow or white.

For detailed information, visit the official website of the Government of the Republic of Slovenia dedicated to current information related to crossing of borders.

  • a certificate of recovery – a certificate of positive PCR test result that is older than 10 days and not older than six months, or medical certificate of recovery from COVID-19, if not more than six months have elapsed since the beginning of symptoms.

    certificate of recovery is accepted if issued in an EU member state, a Schengen Area country, Australia, Israel, Canada, New Zealand, Russia, Serbia, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland or the United States of America, at check points on flight connections of international air transport, or in Turkey;

  • certificate of vaccination against COVID-19, which proves that:
    • at least seven days have passed since the second dose of the Comirnaty vaccine by Biontech/Pfizer,

When you have been diagnosed with a new coronavirus infection and your medical condition does not require hospital treatment at your own discretion, treatment of the infection is symptomatic. The most important thing, however, is to go into self-isolation and thus prevent further spread of the infection. At this link you can see how self-insulation works and what you need to pay special attention to.

Please follow the instructions below to prevent the spread of new coronavirus

· Stay home until you recover. Avoid contact with other people.

· Spend most of your time in a different room than other family members if at all possible. Limit contact with family members (maintain a distance of at least 1.5 meters between you and other family members).

· Ventilate the rooms in which you stay regularly. Ventilate the room for five to ten minutes several times a day.

· Observe proper cough hygiene (before coughing / sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a paper towel or cough / sneeze into the upper part of the sleeve). Dispose of the tissue after each use.

· Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water and disinfect if necessary.

· Use your own cutlery / hygiene items, laundry and towels.

· Clean surfaces visibly contaminated with respiratory secretions; also clean other surfaces regularly. Use cleaners you have at home.

· Wash your laundry with regular washing powder at at least 60⁰C. In case of worsening of the condition (worsening of cough with purulent sputum, difficulty breathing, apathy and confusion, etc.), consult your personal physician over the phone about further measures.
