Dear American Citizen in Slovenia:

 Entry Quarantine rules

  • The government of Slovenia has updated its color-coded system of entry / quarantine restrictions:  A very small number of countries are designated “green” (epidemiologically safe).  A much larger list of countries, including the United States, are designated as “red” (poor epidemiological  conditions).  In some cases, regions of countries (such as parts of Austria or Croatia) are listed as “red.”  All non-listed countries/regions of countries are designated “orange” (aggravated epidemiological situation).   Travelers who have spent 14 days in either a “green” country or an “orange” EU country/region can enter Slovenia without quarantine.  All others must quarantine 10 days or have a negative result from a Covid test taken in the EU within the prior 48 hours.
