Travelling with pet animals

On 3 July 2004, Regulation (EC) No 998/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the animal health requirements applicable to the non-commercial movement of pet animals took effect in the Republic of Slovenia. Dogs, cats and ferrets must be now accompanied by a passport.

Pet animals may enter the Republic of Slovenia with the following documents:
- A passport with a valid anti-rabies vaccination certificate;
- Animal has to bear an electronic identification system or a clearly readable tattooed number (the latter applies only for a transitional period of eight years and does not apply to the United Kingdom and Ireland, where electronic identification system is already required).

In the Republic of Slovenia, animals must be kept on a leash in public places, and muzzles must be used on public transport.

Guide dogs and dogs that assist the disabled may enter any public place or any means of public transport with their guardian, and such dogs do not require a muzzle in public places or on public transport.

The Republic of Slovenia has no regulations prohibiting the entry of certain fighting dog breeds.
