Ordinance on imposing and implementing measures for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 at border crossings at the external border and at checkpoints at the internal borders of the Republic of Slovenia regulates entry into the country for students and employees of educational and scientific research institutions for daily migrants and for persons from third countries. There are certain exceptions and the required evidence for crossing the state border.


Required evidence for students:

  • valid evidence of admission to study or evidence that the student is performing study obligations at the Academy / Faculty (issued by a member of the University of Ljubljana);
  • evidence of temporary or permanent residence in the Republic of Slovenia;
  • negative test result on SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), not older than three days (only for persons from third countries);
  • residence permit (only for persons from third country).

Required evidence for employees:

  • employment contract with a member of the University of Ljubljana;
  • evidence of temporary or permanent residence in the Republic of Slovenia;
  • negative test result on SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), not older than three days (only for persons from third countries);
  • residence permit (only for persons from third country).


Students and employees must check the updated list of countries from which persons can enter to the Republic of Slovenia (published at the NIJZ and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and which border crossing are open. A student who is, despite the Ordinance, unjustifiably ordered to be quarantined, can contact (Ministry of Health) and explain he/she is a student who belongs under the Ordinance exception.

More information


Since spring semester 2019/20 at the Faculty of Arts has fully been held online from March 2020 and the majority of exams at the faculty are and will be executed online, we strongly advise to all international mobility students of current academic year to not return to Slovenia if not absolutely necessary, for urgent matters only


Dear students,


In view of the current coronavirus situation and the measures introduced by the Slovenian Government, the University of Ljubljana Rector, Igor Papič, has adopted the following resolution.


The following recommendations shall apply:


1. During the 2019/2020 academic year, academic programmes shall be carried out online wherever possible.


2. Any instruction that cannot be performed online or in adapted form and is vital to complete the academic requirements may be carried out in the students’ physical presence in one of the following forms:
• One-on-one training with an advisor (research, training in a simulated environment or classroom);
• On-on-one training (e.g. clinical training) at teaching institutions if this is made possible by the institution;
• Any other form if the following conditions are fulfilled:
- The required physical distancing (of at least 1.5 m) is maintained;
- Hand washing and the use of hand sanitisers are provided for;
- Appropriate personal protection equipment is provided for the relevant type of activity (face masks, protective gloves, etc.). The instructor should check the recommendations provided on the NIJZ and Health Ministry websites or consult an epidemiologist;
- Objects and surfaces are disinfected when the group leaves the room;
- Rooms are aired;
- Classes are as short as possible;
- Before class, the instructor must clearly advise all students to stay at home if they show any symptoms or signs of acute respiratory infection and follow the current recommendations (contact their GP or doctor on call, etc.);
- The Faculty produces appropriate protocols for preventing the spread of the new coronavirus and protecting individuals against infection and presents them to all employees and students.


3. Exams
• Instructors are recommended to carry out oral exams and theses defences online to the greatest extent possible;
• Exams where students are physically present may only be carried out if no other option is possible and if the conditions specified under Point 2 are met.


4. From 18 May 2020 on, students may again start using the faculties’ libraries, which are required to implement the NIJZ library recommendations.


5. The physical presence of technical service employees shall depend on the available spatial capacities, the implementation of recommendations set out under Point 2, the produced protocols and the evaluation of whether the employee belongs to a high-risk group. Employees may work from home until the end of the pandemic. The group resolutions ordering employees to work at home still apply. If working from home, employees are required to submit regular reports on their work.


This resolution shall take effect immediately and shall apply as of 18 May 2020 until it is revoked.
