Visa type C

Type C Schengen visa is also known as entry visa.

The visa entitles its holder to enter and stay in the Schengen area for not more than a total of 90 days within a six-month period subsequent to the date of the first entry. This visa may be issued for one or several entries (single entry and multiple entry visa).

This type of visa is usually issued for arrival for the purpose of taking entrance examinations, attending short term language or other courses and for tourist purposes.

Long-stay national visa D

Long-stay visa (type D) is issued for a period from 90 days up to maximum one year. A long-stay visa can be issued to a third-country national who intends to enter and reside in the Republic of Slovenia for the purpose of reunification with his/her family.

Long-stay visa D can also be obtained on the basis of education. 2TM organizes one-year Slovenian and English language courses for internationals interested to study languages in Slovenia. If you enroll to one of our courses, you will be granted a 1 year Visa D for the purpose of pursuing education in the country.

Procedure for obtaining a visa

First, you should check whether you fall in the category of third country nationals requiring a short-stay visa for the Republic of Slovenia.

How to apply for a visa

Visa applicants must submit their application in person at the diplomatic mission or consular post or through an external service provider. The purpose of submitting an application in person is to enable the consular staff to make an initial assessment of the application and to ask the applicant about the purpose of the visit and the submitted documents. At the time of submitting their application, applicants must electronically submit all ten fingerprints.

Where to obtain visa application forms?

Visa application forms are available free of charge at all diplomatic missions and consular posts of the Republic of Slovenia.

Where to file visa application forms?

The list of Slovenian diplomatic missions and consular posts is available in the section Slovenia’s representations abroad. If you live in a country in which the Republic of Slovenia has a diplomatic mission or a consular post authorised for visa processing or in which a representation arrangement has been concluded you must apply for a visa in that country.

If you live in a country without a diplomatic mission or consular post of the Republic of Slovenia and there is no representation arrangement, you may apply for a visa at the representation of the Republic of Slovenia in another country.

An application for a long-stay visa (D type visa) may only be filed at the competent diplomatic mission or consular post of the Republic of Slovenia and not at the diplomatic mission or consular post of the other parties to the Schengen Agreement representing Slovenia.

What is the visa processing time?

A visa application must be submitted at least 15 calendar days and no more than three months before the intended visit.
