Change in conditions for all travellers entering Slovenia to apply from July 15

 The latest amendments to border entry rules will begin to take effect on Thursday, 15 July 2021. All travellers entering Slovenia will have to comply with the same requirement: they must be vaccinated or they have recovered from COVID-19 or they must provide a negative test.

The rule does not apply to travellers transiting Slovenia on their way to another country and to all  international transport, for owners of property on both sides of the border, and children aged under 15 travelling with their parents or custodians.


The EU digital COVID certificate and digital certificates of third countries will be also accepted as proofs. PCR and antigen tests from Kosovo are not accepted.

The following is accepted as proof upon entry into Slovenia:
• European digital COVID certificate in digital or paper form, bearing a QR code,
digital COVID certificate of third countries in digital or paper form, bearing a QR code, that contains the same data as the European digital COVID certificate and issued in English by the competent health authority of the third country,

• a negative PCR test provided that no more than 72 hours have passed since the swab was taken,

• a negative rapid antigen test provided that no more than 48 hours have passed since the swab was taken,

• a certificate of recovery (a certificate of positive PCR test result, which is more than ten days old, unless a doctor assesses otherwise, but no more than six months old, or a medical certificate confirming that the person has recovered from COVID-19 and that no more than six months have elapsed since the onset of symptoms;

• a certificate of vaccination demonstrating that:
– at least seven days have elapsed since receiving the second dose of the Comirnaty vaccine produced by Biontech/Pfizer,
– at least 14 days have elapsed since receiving the second dose of the COVID-19 Vaccine produced by Moderna,
– at least 21 days have elapsed since receiving the first dose of the Vaxzevria (COVID-19 Vaccine) produced by AstraZeneca,

– at least 14 days have elapsed since receiving the second dose of the CoronaVac vaccine produced by Sinovac Biotech,
– at least 14 days have elapsed since receiving the second dose of the COVID-19 Vaccine produced by Sinopharm,

• a certificate of vaccination for persons who have recovered from COVID-19 (a certificate of recovery and proof that the person has been vaccinated with one dose of a vaccine referred to in the preceding point within eight months of a positive PCR test result or the onset of symptoms). The following combination shall be considered adequate proof: proof of vaccination with at least one dose and of a positive PCR test result, or proof of vaccination with at least one dose and a medical certificate of recovery from COVID-19,


• if a person is vaccinated with a combination of two different vaccines under point 4, protection is established after the second dose of a particular type of vaccine has been administered. If such a person is first vaccinated with the vaccine under indent three or five of point 4 (AstraZeneca vaccine), protection is established immediately after they receive the second dose if they are vaccinated for the second time with the vaccine under indent one of point 4 (Biontech/Pfizer vaccine) or indent two of point 4 (Moderna vaccine) and they receive the second dose within 4 to 12 weeks after the first dose.


A PCR test is deemed sufficient if performed in an EU member state, a Schengen Area country, Australia, Israel, Canada, New Zealand, Russia, Serbia, the UK or the US, at check points on flight connections of international air transport, or in Turkey.

A rapid antigen test is deemed sufficient if performed in an EU member state, a Schengen Area country, Australia, Israel, Canada, New Zealand, Russia, Serbia, the UK or the US, at check points on flight connections of international air transport, or also in Turkey, provided the test is on the common list of COVID-19 rapid antigen tests available at: https://ec.europa.eu/health/sites/default/files/preparedness_response/docs/covid-19_rat_common-list_en.pdf. Rapid antigen tests provided by any producer on the list are valid regardless of whether they are marked yellow or white.

A certificate of recovery is accepted if issued in an EU member state, a Schengen Area country, Australia, Israel, Canada, New Zealand, Russia, Serbia, the UK or the US, at check points on flight connections of international air transport, or in Turkey.
