Arrivals from Austria will have to quarantine or provide a fresh negative coronavirus test from Monday.


Neighbouring Slovenia has classified all of Austria as high-risk due to rising coronavirus case numbers. 

As of Monday, November 9th, all arrivals from Austria to Slovenia will need to present a negative coronavirus test which is no older than 48 hours or undertake a ten-day quarantine. 

There are however a number of exceptions to the quarantine and testing requirement, including for work, transit, school or family. 

Commuters, schoolchildren and anyone involved in the freight or transport of goods will be allowed to avoid the requirement. 


Additionally, anyone on an urgent personal or business trip can avoid the requirement, provided their stay is less than 48 hours. 

People who cross can stay with their family members for a maximum of 72 hours. 

Transit through Slovenia is accepted provided it takes less than 12 hours. 

Austrian landlords or tenants of real estate on the Slovenian side of the border are allowed to stay in the country for 48 hours.
