Crossing borders of Slovenia – entrepreneurs travelling from South Africa and Egypt

Both South Africa and Egypt are on the red list when it comes to crossing borders of Slovenia. A red list includes the countries where the epidemiological picture regarding coronavirus infection has deteriorated. Usually, entrepreneurs, regardless of citizenship, travelling from those countries would have to enter a 10-day quarantine upon arrival to Slovenia.

Since 28th September 2020, Slovenia has issued the exception that entrepreneurs travelling from those countries do not have to enter quarantine if they can provide a negative test for COVID-19. The test cannot be older than 48 hours. You can pass it in the EU or in a non-EU country, as long as the facility is included in the Slovenian list of approved medical facilities.

This is a novelty which makes the travel and crossing borders to Slovenia much easier as no quarantine is prescribed.
