Slovenia: Persons coming from Romania will have to self-isolate
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs informed that the Slovenian authorities have announced on Friday new measures regarding the conditions for entering or transiting the territory of this country, and people coming from Romania to stay will have to self-isolate, while those who just want to transit through Slovenia and have no clear symptoms of infection will be allowed to pass.
According to a MAE release to AGERPRES on Friday, the new conditions apply to citizens coming from countries with a high epidemiological risk, including Romania, along with other European countries, such as Bulgaria and Luxembourg.
“Thus, according to information communicated by the Slovenian authorities, citizens coming from Romania who enter the Republic of Slovenia to stay (and not just to transit) must enter self-isolation for 14 days at the hotel or other designated location. The person who are not able to indicate a location for self-isolation will be placed under institutionalized quarantine. Certain categories of persons, however, such as persons who just transit this country or carriers, will be allowed to pass. The list of all exempt categories can be found on the website of the Embassy of Romania in Ljubljana, at the address: https://ljubljana.mae.ro/sites/ljubljana.mae.ro/files/exceptii-lista.rosie.pdf.”
With regard to transit, the Slovenian authorities have stated that it is permitted, provided that its duration does not exceed 12 hours. Also, the local authorities may request from the Romanian citizens transiting the territory of the Republic of Slovenia to other European states documents justifying the right of entry on the territory of the state of destination, as well as the purpose of their travel. However, people with clear symptoms of infection (fever, cough, etc.) will not be allowed to transit through the territory of the Republic of Slovenia.
