Slovenia tightens borders today

By: P.T.,STA

Slovenia will step up restrictions on its borders on Monday in advance of an eleven-day circuit-breaker lockdown over Easter, the government has decided.

Travel to red-listed countries – all of Slovenia’s neighbours are on the red list – will be prohibited except for cross-border commuters, transit, goods and certain other emergency exemptions, Interior Minister Aleš Hojs told the press on Sunday.

Except for daily cross-border commuters, who already have to get tested every seven days with a rapid antigen test, all passengers will have to show a PCR test made in an EU or Schengen zone country to avoid mandatory quarantine.

In the interim period until school closure on 1 April, cross-border students will also be exempted

A vaccination certificate or proof that the person has had Covid-19 in the past six months also suffice.
