Print Add to travel planner
Within the European Union there is free flow of goods, meaning that you can bring into Slovenia any kind of items for personal use. The exceptions to this are tobacco products and alcoholic beverages, for which there are restrictions. These are even stricter for those who live outside the European Union. There are also restrictions on bringing in cash from outside the EU.


Restrictions on tobacco products and alcoholic beverages


- For EU citizens

You can bring into Slovenia a maximum of 800 cigarettes or 200 cigars, or 1 kilogram of smoking tobacco. You can carry a maximum of 10 litres of spirits or drinks with an alcoholic content over 22 percent, or 20 litres of alcoholic beverages with less than 22 percent alcohol.

Anyone over 17 years old can bring into Slovenia a maximum of 200 cigarettes or 50 cigars, or 250 grams of smoking tobacco. You can carry a maximum of 1 litre of spirits or drinks with an alcoholic content over 22 percent, or 2 litres of alcoholic beverages with less than 22 percent alcohol.


Restrictions on cash


There are no restrictions on the amount of cash that European Union citizens can bring into Slovenia, but citizens of other countries may only bring in a maximum of 10,000 euros in cash. Larger amounts must be declared to customs officials.


Travelling with weapons


- For EU citizens

If you are coming to Slovenia to hunt and you wish to use your own weapon, you just need a European permit and gun licence. You must also carry the proper documentation confirming that you are coming to Slovenia to hunt.
