COMMON APPLICATION CENTRE LJUBLJANA

Third-country nationals requiring Schengen visa (Airport Transit Visa - type A and Short-term visa - type C) to enter France, Latvia, Hungary or the Netherlands, may, as of 1 May 2008, apply for such a visa at the Common Application Centre, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia.

 

The relevant embassies are therefore no longer authorised to issue Schengen visas in the Republic of Slovenia. The cooperation between the Member States is based on the principles and rules of Schengen representation.

More about the Common Application Centre, CAC, Ljubljana

On 1 May 2008, a Common Application Centre – CAC was established within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia, Consular Division aimed at facilitating visa procedures. So far, the following countries are represented in the Centre:  Hungary, the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the French Republic and the Republic of Latvia. 

 

This means that single visas (Airport Transit Visa - type A and Short-term visa - type C) to enter these countries are no longer issued by the representations of these EU Member States, but by the Centre within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia.

 

The purpose of the Common Application Centre is to:

  • Facilitate and speed up the procedures for short-stay visas for third-country nationals;
  • Enable rationalisation of visa operation for the Member States, since in the near future, the acquisition of biometric data will become mandatory for third-country nationals, bringing about higher costs for individual Member States.
