If your name has legally changed through marriage, divorce, or a court ordered name change, you will need to apply for a new passport. The process and cost will depend on how long it has been since your passport was issued.
If less than one year has passed since your most recent passport was issued, prepare the following:
- Complete and print Form DS-5504 (follow link for “Updating or Correcting Passport Information”).
- Your current passport
- An original or certified copy of the name change document, such as a marriage certificate, divorce decree, or court order
- One passport photo – 2”×2” (5×5 cm) against a white background and without glasses. There are several photo studios close to the Embassy that are familiar with our passport photo requirements.
- An A5 padded envelope (podložena kuverta) with €2.66 in Slovene postage stamps (two “c” class stamps). We will mail back your passport via registered mail to your home in Slovenia or a Slovenian post office.
- You will not have to pay any passport or processing fees.
- Please make an appointment through our online calendar
If more than one year has passed since your most recent passport was issued:
- See the requirements under Adult Passport Renewal.
- In addition to the requirements for a regular passport renewal, you will need to provide the original or certified copy of the name change document, such as a marriage certificate, divorce decree, or court order.
