Czech Republic, Malta and Switzerland taken off the green list, Belgium added to the red list
On 6 August 2020, some changes to the lists of countries were introduced. Among other, the Slovenian Government decided to take the Czech Republic, Malta, Switzerland and some administrative units of Spain off the green list (entry without a quarantine) and to add Belgium to the red list (14-day quarantine).
Changes on the green list (entry without a quarantine)
Persons who have permanent or temporary residence in a country which is on the green list and are coming from these countries may enter Slovenia without restrictions and a quarantine.
The Czech Republic, Malta, Switzerland and some administrative units of Spain: Balearic Islands, Cantabria, Castile and Leon are taken off the green list.
These countries and administrative units are added to the yellow list. Slovenian citizens regardless of their residence and foreign nationals with permanent or temporary residence in Slovenia travelling from the countries on the yellow list may enter Slovenia without a quarantine if they submit proof that they are not travelling from a country with a high risk of infection with Covid-19 (i.e. the red list), such as the original invoice for payment of accommodation in these countries, proof of ownership of real estate or a vessel where they were staying, official crew list in case of chartering a vessel, or other adequate proof. If they are unable to submit such proof, they will be considered as travelling from a country on the red list (mandatory 14-day quarantine).
Changes on the red list (14-day quarantine)
Belgium, Saint Martin, Equatorial Guinea, Faroe Islands and Namibia are added to the red list (countries with a deteriorated epidemiological situation).
