Health comes first

The situation regarding new cases of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) is changing day by day, so monitoring up-to-date information and taking prompt action on the spread of the disease is crucial to staying healthy.

During the epidemic, you need to diligently follow the preventive measures and the hygienic recommendations to prevent the spread of the disease in Slovenia.

Here, you can find current information about crossing the national borders, about the preventive guidelines adopted in the tourism sector and hospitality services concerning visiting public areas, about public transport, etc.

When and how to cross the state border

Before planning your arrival in Slovenia, obtain information about the current situation and the measures in place at the country’s national borders. Certain restrictions are in place for most visitors, with some exceptions. Here are some of the measures in place:

  • Entry to Slovenia is permitted with no restrictions and quarantine from countries that are on the green or orange list with no border crossing limitations.
  • Persons arriving from red list countries or areas are subject to a ten-day quarantine unless they submit a negative COVID-19 test result not older than 48 hours and carried out in an EU or Schengen Area member state or Slovenia.

 

Please see the detailed information about crossing the border, restrictions and exceptions on the Slovenian Police website.

Working together to ensure a safe and healthy holiday experience

We are doing our best to ensure a safe and healthy environment for your holidays in Slovenia. You can also do your part by following the health recommendations.

Even if you are perfectly healthy, keep a safe distance from other people – 1.5 to 2 metres.

Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly. Use soap and water. Hand disinfection is mandatory in enclosed public spaces.

Do not touch your face, especially your eyes, nose and mouth, with unwashed or undisinfected hands.

If soap is not available, use hand disinfectant containing 60% to 80% alcohol.

Thoroughly air enclosed spaces several times per day.

Follow the information and recommendations of health professionals.

If the spread of respiratory infections and COVID-19 increases, avoid enclosed spaces and large gatherings of people.

If you start showing signs of acute respiratory infection, such as a runny nose, feeling unwell, muscle pain, fever and a cough, take care of yourself and others! Notify the reception. Do not stay in rooms with other people, do not go on trips or participate in other activities.

Practice respiratory hygiene/ cough etiquette. Dispose of tissues in a waste bin after every use, then wash your hands with soap and water.

It is mandatory to have your mouth and nose completely covered with a mask or a scarf in all enclosed public spaces and also outside if you have a respiratory infection or you are caring for someone who has a respiratory infection.

Let’s act responsibly, safely and sustainably.

We realise that now, more than ever, the trust and safety of both guests and tourism workers are extremely important. We maintain and increase trust in the "I feel Slovenia" brand by establishing responsible travel standards in tourism. We have joined them into a new GREEN&SAFE logo to designate and highlight superior hygiene standards, protocols and sustainable recommendations for tourist service providers and destinations. Through activities based on safety, responsibility and sustainability, we increase our guests' trust in Slovenia as a green and safe tourist destination.
