COVID-19 EPIDEMIC: Limited operations of the Consular Department

We would like to inform our esteemed clients that the official hours of the Consular Department remain suspended until further notice. Our clients are kindly advised that prior appointment via phone (+20 2 37498171) or email (sloembassy.cairo@gov.si) is requested to perform any consular service. In particular cases, scans of the documentation may also be requested in advance before allocating a time slot for approaching the Consular Department.

 

Currently, all consular services are available for Slovenian citizens. In cases of emergency only, the emergency phone number is available to Slovenian citizens 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. For foreign nationals, consular services which are not directly linked to travel and entry to the Republic of Slovenia will be generally available while the visa and residence permit procedures remain subject to limitations listed below.

 

The following consular operations remain limited:

1. VISA PROCEDURES: Visa procedures for short-term stay (Schengen visa, type C) remain stopped until a common decision is reached by the EU Member States to resume with visa operations in a coordinated and harmonized way. 

In documented exceptional cases (especially when national interest is proven), the Embassy can accept visa applications. Two additional conditions are requested in these circumstances: that the client is able to produce a plane ticket proving the possibility of travelling to and entering in the Republic of Slovenia, and to produce proof of being able to return to country of origin before the end of visa validity. Issuing of visa C does not automatically guarantee entry into the EU or the Republic of Slovenia as these decisions are made by the competent authorities (the Border Police).

All visa procedures at the diplomatic and consular missions of other Schengen Area Member States representing the Republic of Slovenia in third countries where there is no resident Slovenian diplomatic mission remain stopped.

2. RESIDENCE PERMIT PROCEDURES: Starting 02.07.2020 all services are resumed with the exception of conducting personal interviews of the applicants. Until further notice it is not possible to get an appointment for a personal interview (if required) unless the applicant is coming from a country which is on the "green list" published by the National Health Institute of the Republic of Slovenia.

3. PROCEDURES FOR LONG-TERM NATIONAL VISA D: As of 17.07.2020 the visa procedures for long-term stay (national visa, type D) are resumed. Until further notice it is not possible to get an appointment for a personal interview (if required) unless the applicant is coming from a country which is the "green list" published by the National Health Institute of the Republic of Slovenia. .

 

Thank you for your kind understanding!
