All travellers

If you are travelling to Slovenia indirectly, please refer to the Travel Advice for the countries through which you will be transiting.

If you are not resident in Slovenia, you should be aware that for stays longer than 90 days, you will be required to register as a Temporary Resident. Contact the Uprava Enota (the department that handles these applications) at +386 1 306 3034 or ue.ljubljana@gov.si. The department is open from Monday to Thursday from 8am-6pm and on Friday from 8am-2pm.

There is no longer a requirement to complete a Passenger Locator Form before entering Slovenia.

All travellers arriving in Slovenia are no longer required to present proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.

If you’re fully vaccinated

Entry requirements for Slovenia are the same for all travellers, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status.

Proof of vaccination status

You no longer need to provide proof of your vaccination status for entry to Slovenia.

If you’re not fully vaccinated

Entry requirements for Slovenia are the same for all travellers, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status.

EU guidelines continue to recommend against allowing entry to non-vaccinated travellers from third countries unless their journey is deemed essential. In line with this, entry will be denied to persons (citizens of third countries who do not hold Slovenian residence) with apparent signs of sickness, and those transiting through Slovenia who do not meet the criteria for entering their country of destination.

If you’re transiting through Slovenia

Transiting is when you pass through one country on the way to your final destination.

Transiting through Slovenia is permitted.

Restrictions due to COVID-19 no longer apply when entering Slovenia. This means that the RVT (recovered/vaccinated/tested) condition no longer has to be met at the border and travellers will no longer be ordered to quarantine at home.

This also applies to transit through Slovenia. The only restriction on transit is that travellers must have proof that they will be able to leave the territory of the Republic of Slovenia and enter a neighbouring country.

More information on transiting Slovenia can be found on the Ministry of the Interior website .

If you are travelling to neighbouring countries you should check the travel advice for the latest information on entering those countries. See travel advice for Austria, Croatia, Hungary and Italy.

Internal checkpoints on the Schengen borders with Italy, Austria and Hungary have been removed.

Entry via land border crossings with Croatia

From 01 January 2023 Croatia joins the Schengen area. There will no longer be full immigration controls at the land borders with Croatia from this date. However, you must carry a valid passport or residency card with you at all times.

You can find further details on the Slovenian Police website.


As travellers are not required to prove their vaccination status or present a test certificate, previously allowed exemptions are no longer relevant.

Check your passport and travel documents before you travel

Passport validity

If you are planning to travel to an EU country (except Ireland), or Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino or Vatican City, you must follow the Schengen area passport requirements.

Your passport must be:

  • issued less than 10 years before the date you enter the country (check the ‘date of issue’)
  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

You must check your passport meets these requirements before you travel. If your passport was issued before 1 October 2018, extra months may have been added to its expiry date.

Contact the embassy of the country you are visiting if you think that your passport does not meet both these requirements. Renew your passport if you need to.


You can travel to countries in the Schengen area for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa. This applies if you travel as a tourist, to visit family or friends, to attend business meetings, cultural or sports events, or for short-term studies or training.

If you are travelling to Slovenia and other Schengen countries without a visa, make sure your whole visit is within the 90-day limit. Visits to Schengen countries within the previous 180 days before you travel count towards your 90 days.

To stay longer, to work or study, for business travel or for other reasons, you will need to meet the Slovenian government’s entry requirements. Check with the Slovene Embassy what type of visa and/or work permit, you may need.

If you are travelling to Slovenia for work, read the guidance on visas and permits.

If you stay in Slovenia with a residence permit or long-stay visa, this does not count to-wards your 90-day visa-free limit.

Passport stamping

Check your passport is stamped if you enter or exit the Schengen area through Slovenia as a visitor. Border guards will use passport stamps to check you’re complying with the 90-day visa-free limit for short stays in the Schengen area. If relevant entry or exit stamps are not in your passport, border guards will presume that you have overstayed your visa-free limit.

You can show evidence of when and where you entered or exited the Schengen area, and ask the border guards to add this date and location in your passport. Examples of acceptable evidence include boarding passes and tickets.

You may also need to:

  • show a return or onward ticket
  • show you have enough money for your stay

If you are resident in Slovenia, read our Living in Slovenia guide for passport stamping information.
