All persons, including Slovenian citizens and foreigners with permanent or temporary residence in Slovenia, are ordered to quarantine for 14 days if they are coming from Canada unless they fall under one of the exceptions set out in Article 10 of the Ordinance.  

Persons falling under exceptions referred to in points 1a, 2, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16, such as weekly commuting cross-border workers, persons engaged in trade, persons with a medical appointment, persons who cross the border for reasons of education and training, persons who cross the border to attend a funeral, persons maintaining contact with immediate family members, persons with urgent unavoidable personal errands, persons who lease land and persons with a confirmed booking for an overnight stay in Slovenia (if the booking was made when the person's country was on the list of epidemiologically safe countries (green list)) must also provide the result of a test proving that they are negative for COVID-19, which must not be older than 36 hours and was performed in an EU Member State or a Schengen Area country.
