New ordinance on measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at border crossing points and checkpoints enters into force

The new Ordinance on imposing and implementing measures for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 at border crossings at the external border and at checkpoints at the internal borders of the Republic of Slovenia entered into force today. New exceptions from mandatory 14-day quarantine upon entry into Slovenia have been added. Also, a new checkpoint Gorjansko ‒ San Pelagio has been added on the road connection with Italy.

Entry into the country without mandatory quarantine is now allowed for Slovenian citizens and foreigners with permanent or temporary residence in Slovenia. Persons with permanent or temporary residence in Croatia are currently exempt from quarantine upon entry into Slovenia as well.

Entry into Slovenia is not allowed for foreign citizens without permanent or temporary residence in Slovenia who on crossing the border tell the authorities that they are SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) positive or have typical signs of infection with this virus (high fever, cough, shortness of breath).

Persons with permanent or temporary residence in EU or other Schengen Area member states who are not on the list of countries whose residents may enter Slovenia have to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine upon entry into Slovenia to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Article 10 lists several exceptions  to this restriction.

Incoming travellers from third countries are also required to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2, with some exceptions  listed in Article 12 of the ordinance.

The ordinance entered into force on 26 May 2020. On the day of its entry into force, the Ordinance on imposing and implementing measures for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 at border crossings at the external border and at checkpoints at the internal borders of the Republic of Slovenia ceased to be in force (Official Gazette RS, no. 68/20 and 71/20).
