If you wish to bring with you into Slovenia your dog or cat, the regulations differ depending on whether you are entering from a European Union country or other countries. Those countries are also separated up depending on the danger there of infection with rabies. In all cases, your pet needs a passport and veterinary certificate confirming inoculation against rabies.


Dogs, cats and ferrets


A special set of regulations applies to the most common group of pets, that is, dogs, cats and ferrets.

- For animals travelling with you within the EU

These animals must be tagged with a microchip or in exceptions a tattooed number. You must hold a European passport for them, as issued by an authorised veterinary, who will confirm inoculation against rabies or booster where necessary.

- For animals coming with you from countries not prone to rabies (C list)

These animals must be tagged with a microchip or in exceptions a tattooed number. The animal must be accompanied by a completed veterinary certificate issued or confirmed by an official veterinary officer, and in the event of returning to Slovenia also a passport confirming inoculation against rabies or a booster, where necessary, in line with the manufacturer’s instructions and WHO standards.

These animals must be tagged with a microchip or in exceptions a tattooed number. The animal must be accompanied by a completed veterinary certificate issued or confirmed by a veterinary officer, and in the event of returning to Slovenia also a passport.

Other pets such as rodents, reptiles, amphibians, aquarium fish or ornamental birds are governed by more specific rules, so we advise you to find out about them from your veterinary authority. Advice can also be obtained from the Slovenian Veterinary Administration, at the e-mail address .
