Requirements for entry into Slovenia

There are no restrictions on entry to Slovenia, all you need is a valid travel document (ID card, passport) and a visa (if required). 

Slovenia has temporarily reintroduced controls at its borders with Croatia and Hungary. Passengers must show a valid border-crossing document when crossing the border.

There are 14 border-crossing points where all passengers can cross the border and 18 border-crossing points where only citizens of the European Union, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland can cross the border, along with other passengers who have the right to free movement under EU law.

Hygiene tips and recommendations

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.

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 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! 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.
