Covid-19: Slovenia opened for travellers from Israel

Israel was removed from the Slovenian red list of countries on 15 May 2021. Persons arriving from Israel may enter Slovenia without being put under home quarantine, if upon entry they provide a proof that they resided in Israel continuously for at least 5 days prior to travelling to Slovenia.

In case of arriving to Slovenia from a country, which is listed on the Slovenian red list, it is required to present a negative PCR test not older than 48 hours after taking the swab or a certificate of a COVID-19 vaccination or a medical certificate of recovery from COVID-19. Children under the age of 15 are exempt from this requirement.

In case of transit through another airport or country when travelling to Slovenia, please check the requirements and restrictions of the transit country.

Please note that Israeli authorities require all outbound passengers, who are flying out of Israel, to present a negative COVID-19 test or an Israeli vaccination or recovery certificate. They also require a negative COVID-19 test for all passengers travelling back to Israel. The test must be taken within 72 hours prior to the scheduled departure.

Tourist accommodation facilities in Slovenia are opened. Foreigners who enter Slovenia should comply with the regulations that temporarily restrict the gathering of people.
