Acquisition of smsPASS

Prior to acquiring smsPASS, the user must be appropriately identified, which is done either personally at an administrative unit or remotely with a qualified certificate for e-signature which was issued also with the purpose of authentication to which the user’s tax number is associated. smsPASS can be acquired by persons with a personal identification number and tax number issued in the Republic of Slovenia.

User identification at an administrative unit

  1. A user who wishes to obtain smsPASS and in the activation process selects identification at an administrative unit, begins the acquisition process on the SI-PASS user pages. If the user does not yet have a SI-PASS user account, he must first register it. In the process of activating smsPASS, the user provides the personal data necessary for obtaining smsPASS: name, surname, tax number, date of birth and address of permanent residence.
  2. Upon successful submission of a request for the smsPASS, the user visits an administrative unit, where the civil servant of the registration authority personally identifies the user by means of a valid identity document with a photo.
  3. Once the user's identity is confirmed, the user receives an activation code to his or her email address, which is needed in order to continue the smsPASS activation process. The user completes the procedure on the SI-PASS user pages, where the user enters the activation code and his or her phone number to which he receives an SMS message with a one-time password. By entering this one-time password, the user acknowledges his or her control of the device and finishes the smsPASS activation process.
