Slovenia

Summary

Information and advice for British nationals travelling and living in Europe, following the result of the EU referendum.

Although fewer people are currently transiting through Slovenia, reinstated immigration controls are temporarily in operation at road and rail border crossing points with Austria and Hungary. Full immigration controls are in place at Slovenia’s border with Croatia. You must carry your passport with you at all times. You should monitor local media and check with your transport provider, the Slovenian Automobile Association (AMZS) or Slovenian Railways (SZ) websites for updates.

There is a low threat from terrorism. See Terrorism

Around 100,000 British nationals visit Slovenia every year. Most visits are trouble free.

All foreign nationals visiting Slovenia must register with the police within 3 days of arrival or risk paying a fine. Hotels and accommodation providers will usually do this as part of the check in procedures. See Local laws and customs

To drive on Slovenian motorways, you must buy and display a ‘vignette’. Vehicles must be fitted with winter equipment from 15 November to 15 March. See Road travel

Seek advice on weather and safety conditions before travelling into the mountains. Off-piste skiing is highly dangerous due to the risk of avalanches. See Skiing/mountaineering.

The Overseas Business Risk service offers information and advice for British companies operating overseas on how to manage political, economic, and business security-related risks.

You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling.
