In addition to a valid travel document, third-country nationals must hold a visa in order to enter the Republic of Slovenia. A visa is a permit issued by a relevant diplomatic mission or consular post of the Republic of Slovenia to a third-country national. If the circumstances under which a visa was issued have changed, border authorities may refuse entry and cancel the visa. On our web pages you will find online visa applications, a detailed description of the circumstances under which a visa is required, and a description of different visa types. For additional information on visas, please contact us via e-mail or telephone. For information on a country’s visa regime, we advise that you directly contact its representation.
CHANGES IN THE CALCULATION OF THE LENGTH OF STAY IN THE SCHENGEN AREA AND CHANGES IN THE VALIDITY OF THE PASSPORT
Regulation (EU) No 610/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 amends the Schengen Borders Code, Regulation (EC) No 539/2001 (visa requirements), as well as the Visa Code and the Schengen Implementation Convention, including amendments. The most important change introduced by the above Regulation is the definition of the short-stay. As of 18 October 2013 the authorised length of stay in the Schengen area will be calculated according to the new definition, i.e. 90 days in any 180-day period.
The second major change taking effect on the date of entry into force of this Regulation, i.e. on 19 July 2013, is that all aliens, including those who do not require a visa, need a valid travel document the validity of which shall last until at least three months after the intended date of departure from the Schengen area. The above limitation does not apply to EU citizens.
