A national of another EEA Member State (EEA citizens are nationals of EU Member States, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) or Switzerland may enter the Republic of Slovenia with a valid personal identity card or passport, and does not require an entry permit (visa) or residence permit, regardless of the purpose of entering and residing in the Republic of Slovenia (including entry for employment, study, self-employment or residence purposes). A national of a third country (all countries except Switzerland and EEA Member States, which includes EU Member States, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) should obtain a visa at a diplomatic mission or consular post of the Republic of Slovenia prior to his/her entering the country. A third-country national who is a national of a country which does not require a visa to enter the Republic of Slovenia may enter the Republic of Slovenia and stay in it for a definite period of time (up to 90 days in any 180-day period) for one of the above-listed purposes with a valid passport.

If you need a visa to enter Slovenia, you can obtain one from the Slovenian embassy or consular office in your country. If there is no Slovenian consular office in your country, you can apply to the consular representatives of any Member State of the Schengen Zone.

All Schengen countries issue Schengen visas under the same conditions, taking into account the interests of the other Member States. A visa issued by one Schengen state is valid for all other states in the Zone. In other words this means that you can visit multiple countries within the Schengen Zone. And remember that when your visa is approved your passport must be valid for at least another six months.
