British and Irish nationals visiting Slovenia must be in possession of a passport valid for six months, or for the duration of their stay if longer. You do not require a visa to visit Slovenia and no special permits are required for periods of stay up to three months.

*make sure yer passports run till the middle of next year.

Is right.  When I visited before they just came on the train and stamped your date of entry.

GREETINGS

Slovenes normally divide their day into four parts: early morning, daytime, evening, and night. Thus for 'good afternoon' there is no special expression and the greetings are divided on the basis of the time of day. Here the most common word with translation and transcription are present as well as some locally used ones.

Meeting people

Good morning. - {dobro yutro} - Dobro jutro - this phrase may be used when meeting somebody in the morning (generaly before 12 o'clock) and can be used in both formal and informal way.

Good day. - {dober dan} - Dober dan - this quite easily pronounced phrase can be used to greet people (in formal and informal manner) from 8 a.m. till sunset.

Good evening. - {dober vecher} - Dober vecer - this phrase for both formal and informal use can help you when greeting people and is generaly used after the sunset.

Welcome. - {dobrodosli/pozdravlieni} - Dobrodosli/Pozdravljeni - use these if you greet somebody to some place. Note that the second variant I have encounterd more frequently used for groups.

Hi. - {zdravo/zhiviio} - Zdravo/Zivijo. - both ways of greeting are informal and are used exactly in the same manner as their English counterparts.

Parting

Good bye. - {na svidenie} - Na svidenje - The parting expression 'na svidenje' can be literaly translated as 'see you again.'

Adieu. - {zbogom.} - zbogom - The now fairly seldom used expression for permanent parting zbogom means 'with God.' But you will still encounter it when talking to people of older generations and in the villages.

Good night.- {laako noch} - Lahko noc. - the meaning is exactly the same as that of the English phrase.

Good luck.- {srechno} - Srecno. - In the mountains and in the vilages one often hears the word 'srecno' meaning 'good luck' in parting.

Bye. - {zdravo/zhiviyo/adiyo} - Zdravo./Zivijo/Adijo. - if at meeting you used the Slovene word for 'Hi' than using one these informal parting expressions is just logical.

Have a good/nice time. - {lepo se imeyte/lepo se imey} - Lepo se imejte./ Lepo se imej - the translation is the English phrase types at the beginning. There is no difference here between 'good' and 'nice'. The second variant is familiar - use it when talking to your friends.

We don't get a nice stick on visa like Moscow and Kiev? Never mind, it's therefore 40 cheaper.I'll settle for another stamp instead. 8)
Been there,done that,getting older,bordering on part timer status. So sad but that's life.
