Travel restrictions in Europe

When you want to go on holiday in Europe, you should of course first ask yourself which country is open to tourists, and under what conditions. Chris has already traveled with his 4×4 camper to Switzerland during corona time† Experience shows that this can be done well, if you are well prepared. Today we take travel to Slovenia in corona time a closer look. The current measures ensure that it is possible for travelers to enter the country and we expect this to become even smoother in the coming time.

If you have only received 1 vaccination and you can demonstrate that it has not been more than 8 months since you had COVID, you may also enter Slovenia.

Can you not show one of the above proofs or do you not fall under an exception category that you can find on the website of the Slovenian Ministry of the Interior (information in English), then you must be in home quarantine for 10 days.
