If you need passport assistance and your circumstances are not covered by the information on our website, please send us an email with the specifics of your situation and we will be happy to assist you.
All full-validity passports are printed in the States and mailed by courier service back to the Embassy. It typically takes between 7 to 10 working days for us to receive a passport. In emergency cases, we may be able to issue a limited-validity passport here at the Embassy. Please contact our office by email if you have emergency travel plans.
As there is only one passport officer in Ljubljana, before coming to the Embassy to apply for a passport, please make an appointment using our online calendar.
If you are driving to Slovenia from Italy, Austria, Croatia, or Hungary, please make sure you stop at the border and purchase a vignette for your car. Using Slovene highways without a valid and properly-displayed vignette in a vehicle is considered a violation of the law; drivers may be fined between EUR 300 and 800. For more information, please see our page on Driving & Auto Accidents.
