Antigen or PCR testing in Ljubljana? Where?
Save

Hi we will be departing from Ljubljana in September transiting back to the US and will need a test. (This is assuming Slovenia is open in September, we are vaccinated already). I assume testing is going to long be required for entry/exit all over the world. Where can we get the testing done in Ljubljana before we leave? We need results with enough time to get on board our US flight within 72 hours of the test. Cost isn’t an issue. Thanks.

There are both private and public companies that offers both testing to private (paying) customers. Try Google with keywords "samoplačniško testiranje". Below is one hit for a private company: https://juventina.si/covid-test/

and for public company:

Some airpots have testing stations on-premise (with results printed out in English), which I found very convenient two weeks ago in Venice,

but if you want something in Ljubljana, there is e.g.:

- UKC Ljubljana (largest hospital in Slovenia) offers testing (unspecified, but looks like PCR) for 68€ - https://www.kclj.si/index.php?dir=/pacienti_in_obiskovalci/klinike_in_oddelki/klinika_za_infekcijske_bolezni_in_vrocinska_stanja/samoplacnisko_testiranje_covid19

- ZD Ljubljana offers PCR for 100€ - https://www.zd-lj.si/zdlj/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=624&Itemid=2651&lang=sl

They both give you some kind of reciept, but it could be in Slovene only.

There also seem to be some private clinics available:

- Juventina where PCR test costs 85€ https://juventina.si/covid-test/

- Hippocratis Medico with 95€ PCR test https://www.hippocratis-medico.si/samoplacnisko-testiranje-covid-19/

All of these seem to require an appointment.

If you'll try to look for yourself in September, the keywords are "samoplačniško testiranje" (self-payed testing) and you can add "ljubljana" or "pcr" or "hag" (for antigen testing)

Have had good experience with Hippocratis Medico recently. Open 6am-10pm 7 days a week. Needed a test at short notice and they were open and delivered the test in ~15 mins of the swab.

Conversely, I would steer clear of the outfit that does the testing at the airport (Zdravstveni zavod zdravje / MCL). The guy performing the test arrived late adding to my stress and parking costs. Took the swab but I never got the results. I've been phoning them regularly to get my money back but they refuse to reimburse me for whatever reason. Not a pleasant experience.
