SLOVENIA IS OPEN FOR TRAVELERS WITHOUT ANY COVID-RELATED RESTRICTIONS!
THE RECOVERED-VACCINATED-TESTED RULE DOES NOT APPLY ANYMORE!
This blog post will be updated regularly to inform you about the current coronavirus situation in Slovenia, eventual travel restrictions, and more. If you have any questions regarding the coronavirus situation in Slovenia or would like to start planning a trip to Slovenia, we are here to help.
Slovenia was a “COVID-19 free” destination when this blog post was first written back in June 2020. It was actually the first country in Europe to declare an end to the coronavirus epidemic on May 15th, 2020. New daily discovered COVID-19 infections in Slovenia were close to zero throughout summer 2020. However, the same as in other parts of Europe and North America, autumn 2020 has brought different news and new lockdowns.
In summer 2021 we all adapted to the new normal and life & travel were pretty much back to normal for all fully vaccinated residents and travelers. Fall 2021 brought a new peak which was extended with the omicron variant. Most of the covid-related restrictions were abandoned in Spring 2022.
