There are still countries in Europe that allow refugees from Ukraine to use public transportation for free, and Slovenia is one of them. Recently, the Embassy of Ukraine in Slovenia and LPP Ljubljana announced that the country continues free travel in Ljubljana.


Please note: The fare exemption in the Slovenian capital will remain in effect until March 4, 2024. The exemption does not apply to commuter services.


Changes in travel regulations

Refugees from Ukraine must apply for an Urbana ID card - only this will entitle them to free travel. Contact the Potnicki center LPP, Slovenska cesta 56, to obtain this card.


A personal card will be issued to refugees who have one of these documents:

  • a Temporary Protection Card ("iskaznitsa");
  • a decision on temporary protection and an identity document;
  • decision on refugee status and an identity document.


Since April of this year, free travel without an Urbana card is prohibited. We emphasize that the card you receive must be validated every time you use transportation.


Assistance provided by Slovenia to Ukrainians

Ukrainians who came to the country after February 24, 2022 received temporary protection. In addition to permission to stay in the country, it guarantees other rights and benefits:

  • Accommodation and meals in accommodation centers;
  • Financial assistance for personal housing;
  • Cash payments for personal needs;
  • Medical care;
  • Access to the labor market and education;
  • Free legal assistance.
