Travelling abroad with evidence of urgency or necessity

Travelling abroad is not forbidden with the current legislation or ordinances of the Government of the Republic of Slovenia. We advise passengers to have their flight ticket or other evidence with them as proof of urgency or necessity of travelling. When driving to the airport with the intention of picking up or dropping off a relative, individuals should also carry with them a proof of such intention.

The Government of the Republic of Slovenia states on its website that in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus infections, moving from one statistical region to another is allowed only in the case of one of the 10 exceptions from the Decree on temporary partial restriction of movement or prohibition of gathering to prevent SARS-CoV-2 infections, that are:

1. Travel to and from work and the performance of work-related tasks,
2. Performance of economic, agricultural and forestry activities,
3. Averting imminent danger to health, life or property,
4. Provision of care and assistance to individuals who need support or provision of care for family members,
5. Access to pharmacies, medical and sanitary services and treatment in health resorts,
6. Access to foreign diplomatic and consular missions,
7. Access to emergency services,
8. Access to the performance of tasks related to the functioning of judicial and administrative authorities and law enforcement agencies,
9. Access to services for persons with special needs,
10. Performance of maintenance work or seasonal tasks in a private facility or on private land for members of the same household.

To seek advice on this matter passengers can contact them on the telephone number +386 (0)1 514 70 01 or write to info.koronavirus@policija.si.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises Slovenian citizens wishing to travel abroad 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 dedicated website Border Crossing.
