The following items are prohibited from importation, meaning they won't be allowed to enter the destination country, territory or region.

If an item is subject to import restrictions, it means that provisions must be met before it will be released from customs in the destination country, territory or region.
We recommend you confirm import restrictions with local authorities before posting:
Slovenia requires an import permit for many goods. Before posting any item, senders should confirm that the addressee has any necessary permit.

Slovenia may accept watch cases or housings (mounted or unmounted) of complete watches made of precious metals after analysis of the metal content. Slovenia does not accept articles containing incomplete watch cases or parts.
Postal items addressed to individuals may contain personal travel articles, articles for personal and family use (medicines, medical instruments, teaching and leisure material) and articles for the use of their household in quantities not intended for resale. Personal items not exceeding $US30 are exempt from customs duty.
Legacy and contract items
Items inherited abroad and articles provided for in contracts concluded between States may be freely imported in accordance with such contracts.
Professional tools of trade
Natural persons of Slovenian nationality exercising a profession may import articles for use in that profession subject to special conditions.
Okay to send? Send responsibly.
As the sender, it's your responsibility to make sure your items don't break any laws or rules – both within Australia and in the destination country.
Restrictions and conditions can change at short notice so the information on this page should be used as a guide only. For the latest information, you should check the UPU prohibitions & restrictions (PDF 7.2MB) or contact the destination country's customs, postal trade or government authority.
It's also your responsibility to check if the destination country imposes any duties, taxes, brokerage fees or any other fees on the item you're sending. If you're unsure, please contact the consulate office of the destination country.
