We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Slovenia. The British Embassy in Ljubljana provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Slovenia.

Our work covers a range of issues including the economy, energy policy and international security.

We provide a range of consular and passport services to British citizens living in Slovenia and serve as a source of information about the UK for the Slovene media and members of the public.

You can access UK government services while in Slovenia.
