Slovenia ranks the countries / regions in three categories, depending on the number of confirmed SARS-CoV-2019 cases in the countryin the last two weeks:  

  • RED: 40 cases and more / 100,000 inhabitants;
  • YELLOW: countries, which are neither red neither yellow;  
  • GREEN: 10 cases or less / 100,000 inhabitants. 

Everyone arriving from a red country / region, has to spend two weeks in a quarantine upon arrival. You receive th equarantine decision on the border crossing, where you also need to state the address, where you will be staying during the quarantine. 

Quarantine is obligatory also for people from yellow countries / region, however students are an exception in this case, if they can prove, that they are coming to Slovenia for studies purposes. 

For people from green countries / regions, there are no limitations for entering Slovenia. . 

The list of countries is updated regularly and is published on the news of the Slovenian Police



We ask all our students to plan their arrival to Slovenia on time and in a way that they finish quarantine before the start of the academic year on 1 October 2020.  

We recommend freshmen to arrive to Slovenia on 14 September the latest and finish their quarantine by 27 September. After the end of the quarantine, we will organise orientation days for foreign students between 28 and 30 September. 

If you need support of the university for arranging a quarantine, please let us know. The University of Primorska is entering into agreement with local accommodation providers for student quarantine. We expect that it will cost you up to 30 EUR a day. 



All foreign students must fill in the questionnaire, before arrival to Slovenia: 


Questionnaire is intended to collect information on the existing needs, so that we can adapt our activities and find sufficient capacities. 

All collected data will be used only to organise accommodation and share information related to quarantine. If needed, contact data will also be used to notify you about a past contact with a positive person. We will delete all collected data on 30 October 2020.
