Isstarska, Primorje-Gorski Kotar, Lika-Senj, Zadar, Šibenik-Knin, Split-Dalmatia and Dubrovnik-Neretva counties they are thus removed from the list of countries and areas at high risk of coronavirus infection.
Namely, in areas that are not on the dark red or red list, there is no high risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection, so a person coming from such an area can enter Slovenia without being sent to house quarantine, if he submits proof that he has resided continuously in an area which has not been on the red or dark red list for at least five days prior to entry, a complete press release of the Slovenian Government.
From European Union countries, in addition to Croatia, Switzerland, the Vatican, the Austrian administrative unit of Tyrol, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Germany, Poland, Slovakia and the Portuguese Azores were removed from the red list at yesterday's session. From third countries Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Montenegro are no longer on that list. Administrative units are still on the red list Pannonian Croatia, the City of Zagreb and Northern Croatia. This means that a person coming from these areas in Croatia is quarantined for ten days due to a possible infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
The decision made by the Slovenian Government yesterday, takes effect on Saturday, June 12th.
Podcast SEASON2021: Metka Bradetić, Director of the CNTB Slovenia Representative Office - Slovenian Market Profile
In a special special edition of the podcast Homo Turisticus - SEASON2021 we bring key information from our emitting tourism markets.
In an episode of five podcasts, we bring you key information from the market Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Poland and Hungary, our main emitting markets from which we expect a lot this tourist year if the epidemiological situation in the Republic of Croatia and in those countries is favorable.
According to eVisitor data for 2019, Slovenia is our second main emitting market and accounts for over 10% of the total number of tourist nights or 11 million overnight stays.
There is not a single active or sporting event in Croatia without at least one Slovenian being registered, he points out Metka Bradetić, director of the CNTB office in Slovenia and adds that quality content, authentic gastronomy and outdoor activities are certainly elements that we must target the Slovenian market. “Ljubljana and Maribor are the largest cities in Slovenia, but over 90 people who travel to work every day do not only come from big cities, but most Slovenes live outside the cities. They tend to live in houses. For this reason, it worked as an excellent communication channel, as it is very audible in the car while people are traveling or returning from work. Also, for this reason, advertising on social networks should target the surroundings of large cities", States Bradetić.
