Ministry of Foreign Affairs Travel Advice: COVID-19

As the probability of infection with COVID-19 remains present, Slovenian citizens wishing to travel abroad are advised to follow the news on the spread of the virus, especially on the planned route, to check the conditions of entry into the country of destination, and to comply with local rules. Slovenian citizens returning from abroad are advised to follow the recommendations of the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ).

Current information on border crossings, measures at the border upon entry into Slovenia and the lists of countries can be found on the special page Border Crossing.

Travel broadens one’s horizons and strengthens one’s spirit. We have prepared some advice and useful information to ensure that your time abroad is pleasant and safe. Here you will find some advice on what you should do before your trip, and detailed information on how Slovenia's diplomatic missions or those of other EU Member States can help you abroad.

Do not forget to check any travel recommendations issued by the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs before your departure. You may wish to inform the Ministry's Consular Service in advance of any planned trip or Alpine expedition.  On the basis of the information you provide before your departure, we can organise consular assistance more quickly and efficiently.

What can Slovenia's diplomatic missions abroad do for you and what can they not do?

Slovenia's diplomatic missions can, for example, issue an emergency passport or help you obtain money so that you can return to Slovenia, and also inform your relatives in the event you are involved in an accident. But they cannot post bail, arrange your release from detention or prison, or secure preferential treatment in hospitals or prisons.  If you are staying in a country where Slovenia does not have a diplomatic mission and you find yourself in a difficult situation, you can turn for help to an embassy or a consulate of another EU Member State in that country.

SMS "Embassy"

Upon entry into a foreign country, Slovenian nationals using the services of a Slovenian mobile phone operator will receive an SMS with the phone number of the competent Slovenian embassy that can provide consular assistance or protection, if needed. The SMS contains a link to the website of the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs offering useful information.
