Baggage Shipping to Slovenia
Important Slovenia Customs Information
Most countries offer a generous duty free allowance for personal effects and the majority of Send My Bag™ shipments worldwide will not be stopped by customs.
Personal effects are usually assessed as used items which have been in the sender's possession for 6 months or more. If your bag is checked by customs and is found to contain brand new or commercial items your shipment may be assessed for customs duties and taxes. If you are sending Christmas gifts please check with the destination country so you are aware of potential customs duties, follow their advice and attach all necessary documentation.
Customs processes and allowances do vary by country and as such we advise all travellers take 5 minutes to check how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed under the prevailing customs regulations of the destination.
More information is available in on our customs information page.
In order to demonstrate your shipment is personal effects you will be required to complete a brief non generic packing list online, entries to be made in the format: "5 x Cotton T-Shirts, 2 x Jeans, 3 x Cotton Shirt" and so on rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

The country’s capital city is Ljubljana, which has a population of 280,000. Other urban areas include Maribor, Kranj, Celje and Koper.
Slovenia is one of the eight Alpine countries but also has a Mediterranean coast.
The climate of Slovenia varies according to region, with the Alpine areas suffering a harsh climate but the coast enjoying a sub-Mediterranean climate. In July the average temperature is 68°F and 32°F in January.
The country is very green, given its vast areas of forest. It is the third most forested country in Europe. The country also contains 9,000 beautiful karstic caves.
You can reach Slovenia by air, with many connections between Ljubljana Airport and other European cities. There are also many rail connections.
Slovenia is a great destination for activity holidays. In the winter you can enjoy skiing in the Alps and in the summer there are plenty of opportunities for hiking, cycling and water sports. These include white-water rafting, canyoning and canoeing. For a gentler activity, angling is amply provided for by numerous rivers and lakes, and you can golf to your heart’s content at over ten golf courses.
In the city of Ljubljana there is plenty of architecture to view and shops and restaurants to enjoy, making it an ideal destination for a city break.
