Consular Section

The Consular Section of the American Embassy provides assistance to American citizens residing in or visiting Slovenia and visa services for temporary visitors and immigrants to the United States.

The American Citizen Services Unit helps American citizens with passport applications and renewals, reports of birth for children born in Slovenia, voter registration, federal benefits, child custody issues, and notarial services. The unit also provides emergency services for American citizens in distress.

The Visa Unit processes both non-immigrant and immigrant visas. Non-immigrant visas are for short-term visits to the United States for tourism, business, study, exchanges, and temporary work. Immigrant visas are processed for persons who are entitled to reside permanently in the United States.
