Entrepreneurs who travel from Canada and US can enter Slovenian national borders without quarantine!

Slovenia has prepared three lists when it comes to assessing the epidemiological picture of a particular country in the world. There is a green, orange and red list. A red list includes the countries where the epidemiological picture regarding coronavirus infection has deteriorated, whereas the green list includes countries where the epidemiological picture is good. All countries that are not on the green or red list, are on the orange list. Those lists also determine the processes of how citizens of those countries can pass the national borders. Both the orange and the red lists includes countries, from which entrepreneurs, regardless of citizenship, have to enter a 10-day quarantine upon arrival to Slovenia.

On 28th September 2020, Slovenian government has posted exceptions to those conditions.  Entrepreneurs travelling from red-list or orange-list 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 national borders to Slovenia much easier as no quarantine is prescribed. Canadian and US citizens do not have to apply for Schengen visas to visit Slovenia for business or personal reasons. Owning a passport of those countries allows them to visit Slovenia without Schengen visa for maximumly 90 days.
