Foreign travel advice



There may be disruption or delays at border crossings due to the number of people seeking to transit Slovenia. You can find information about road border crossings at the Slovenian traffic information centre website. You can find information about internal and international journeys on the Slovenian Automobile Association (AMZS) website. There have been no reports of disruption to air travel.

The situation is subject to constant change. You should monitor local and international media, check with your transport provider before travel and follow information on the Slovenian Interior Ministry website.

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. 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.
