ARRIVAL TO SLOVENIA-COVID-19 RELATED INFORMATION

 

On 23 October 2020, the Government of the Republic of Slovenia adopted the Decree on the temporary prohibition of gathering of persons in institutions in the field of education as well as in universities and independent higher education institutions (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, No. 152/20), in order to contain and control the COVID-19 epidemic.

The Decree temporarily prohibits gatherings in all educational institutions, including student dormitories, with the following exceptions:

  • Pupils and students who are unable to return to their place of residence due to the current security situation and unaccompanied minors with the status of an applicant for international protection or with recognized international protection may remain in student dormitories.
  • Students who have permanent residence in the dormitory, student families and foreign students and visiting professors who are prevented from returning to their place of permanent residence due to the current security situation.

The Decree shall enter into force on the day following its publication in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia and shall apply on Monday, 26 October 2020. The Government of the Republic of Slovenia shall assess the reasonable grounds of the measures every seven days by reviewing the epidemiological situation in the country and shall consequently extend, change or abolish the measures in the Decree.

All persons should follow the recommendations of the Ministry of Health and the National Institute of Public Health for the prevention of SARS-CoV-2 virus.

 

The faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana will start the academic year with so-called hybrid model (combining physical and virtual space). If there is no change in the epidemiological situation regarding Covid-19, part of the study obligations will be carried out online (Zoom), therefore students will need adequate Internet access, computer, camera and microphone. Part of the obligations will however be carried out at the faculty, for which you will need to be present at the faculty.

Due to current border-crossing-related difficulties and the constantly changing information regarding this, we recommend that you contact the course providers regarding the possibility of taking the exams during summer examination period online.

If this is not possible and you will have to return to Slovenia, we suggest that - before you start your journey - find out the exact information on measures and the epidemiological situation as well as the possibility of crossing state borders along the entire route. More information on border crossing and the documentation is available here.

Information for students from other countries related to the implementation of quarantine and prolonging the temporary residence permit in Slovenia for study purposes

We inform students that in accordance with the opinion of the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport, quarantine cannot be organized at the national level at this time, and that all costs related to quarantine must be covered by the student.

The Ministry of the Interior (hereinafter: MNZ) explains that students holding a valid temporary residence permit for study purposes must return to Slovenia as soon as possible, in any case before the expiry of the temporary residence permit. If this is not (or will not be possible), the MNZ proposes that the foreigner submits an application for the first temporary residence permit for study purposes at a diplomatic mission or consulate of the Republic of Slovenia abroad or enter the Republic of Slovenia on the basis of one of the entry addresses in the sixth paragraph of Article 44 of the Foreigners Act: hereinafter: ZTuj-2) and submits an application for the issuing of the first temporary residence permit for study purposes within the period referred to in the seventh paragraph of Article 44 of Ztuj-2 with the competent administrative unit in the Republic of Slovenia. The unofficial translation of the Foreigners Act is available here.

On university website are published detailed information for students from other countries regarding arrival to Slovenia, accommodation for quarantine and study process at the University of Ljubljana.

Important information (September 29, 2020): We would like to inform you that the Government of the Republic of Slovenia amended the Ordinance on imposing and implementing measures related to the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 at the external border crossings and at control points at the internal borders of the Republic of Slovenia. Please do check the changes in the list of countries.
