Slovenia Withdraws Decision on Mandatory COVID-19 Tests for Daily Migrant Workers

Total Croatia News

Updated on:

The decision had been in force less than 24 hours and was changed on Friday after criticisms by opposition parties and complaints by Slovenians who travel every day to Austria and Italy for work.

Under the new decision, daily work migrants do not need a negative COVID-19 test on entering Slovenia if coming from EU or Schengen countries where the epidemiological situation is better than in Slovenia, the government said on Twitter late on Friday.

The decision takes effect on Saturday, 6 February. It also applies to Croatians who travel every day to Slovenia for work, as well as to citizens of other neighbouring countries that have a lower incidence rate of daily COVID-19 cases.
