Pets to Bring into Slovenia

To cross the borders between member countries of the EU (i.e, for the non-commercial movement of house pets, where the animals return to their home country together with their owners), the owners of dogs, cats and ferrets must carry an EU passport for house pets containing a confirmation of vaccination against rabies, and the animals must be marked in the prescribed fashion. Special regulations apply for some members of the EU (Great Britain, the Republic of Ireland, and Sweden).

Furrther details are available from the Veterinary Administration of the Republic of Slovenia or from local veterinary institutions. For other house pets (rodents, reptiles, amphibians, aquarium fish, pet birds, etc.) the rules differ from country to country, so owners should seek further information in the individual country or from the Veterinary Administration of the Republic of Slovenia (

For the non-commercial import of animals from third countries (non-members of the EU), dogs, cats and ferrets can travel with veterinary certificates as published in the Decision of the Commission 2004/203/ES; the same regulations apply for other animals as for the non-commercial movement of animals between member countries.

All dogs, cats and ferrets entering Slovenia from third countries must be accompanied by a certificate of good health bearing the seal of your local board of health and signed by a veterinarian. This certificate must be issued not more than 10 days prior to the animal's arrival. A veterinarian meets the animal at the airport upon arrival and checks all these health papers before allowing entry through the customs. There is also a 3-week in-house quarantine period. The quarantine period ends after a stool examination and an inspection by a veterinarian. The general level of veterinary care in Ljubljana is very good.
