Border Formalities and Entry Regulations

Citizens of the European Union and some other countries may cross the border using a valid identity card however. All those who need visas to enter Slovenia can get them at the Slovenian embassy or consulate in their country.

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.
