Ministry of Foreign Affairs Travel Advice: COVID-19
As the probability of infection with COVID-19 remains present, Slovenian citizens wishing to travel abroad are advised to follow the news on the spread of the virus, especially on the planned route, to check the conditions of entry into the country of destination, and to comply with local rules. Slovenian citizens returning from abroad are advised to follow the recommendations of the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ).
Visa requirement for entering Slovenia
The application of the exemption from the visa requirement with regard to holders of ordinary passports issued by Vanuatu as of 25 May 2015, is temporarily suspended. The visa regime applies from 4 May 2022 to 3 February 2023.
Holders of passports issued by Vanuatu having entered the EU before the date of entry into force of visa regime may continue their stay in the EU and exit without a visa.
For full details of the procedure for obtaining a short-stay visa, please contact the relevant Slovenian diplomatic mission or consular post or that of the EU Member State representing Slovenia in that country*.
For full details of the procedure for obtaining a long-stay visa, please contact the competent Slovenian diplomatic mission or consular post.
* The table shows the presence of diplomatic missions and consular posts authorised for visa processing in third countries. For Slovenia, the column marked "SI" is checked. If an X is indicated in this column for a third country, it means that a Slovenian diplomatic mission or consular post is present in that country and ensures the processing of visa applications.
If this column contains a code of another Schengen country instead of X, Slovenia does not have a diplomatic mission or consular post in that country and the application for a short-stay visa must be lodged with the representation of that country. For more detailed information on how and under what conditions to apply for a visa, please visit the website of the relevant representation.
If there is no entry in the column marked “SI”, then there is no Slovenian diplomatic mission or consular post in the third country, and no representation arrangements are in place, so the application for a short-stay visa must be lodged with the nearest Slovenian representation.
