COVID-19 EPIDEMIC: Limited operations of the Consular Department

We would like to inform our esteemed clients that, starting 1 June 2020, the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Cairo will resume with the Sunday-Thursday working week schedule. 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.


Starting 3 June 2020, all consular services will be 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, all consular services which are not directly linked to travel and entry to the Republic of Slovenia will be available.


The following consular operations remain limited:

1. VISA PROCEDURES: The 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. The visa procedures for long-term stay (national visa, type D), including the visas for reunification of the family, remain stopped until further notice.

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.

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: New applications for residence permits will not be accepted until commercial flight operations from the EU are reinstated. Fingerprinting is possible, but only within the ongoing procedures started at the Administrative Units (the client is obliged to present a formal request by the competent Administrative Unit for figerprints to be taken) or when there is proven national interest (the client is obliged to present a formal statement by the competent Ministry stating national interest in the fields of economy, education, scientific research or culture). Serving of the already issued residency cards is possible in person only.


Thank you for your kind understanding!
