Visa Information

VISAS
Please check with your embassy if you require a visa to travel.  Participants who require a visa to enter Slovenia need to request a letter of guarantee, which will be issued by the conference venue.  The letter of guarantee is issued exclusively for the purposes of visa arrangements and does not imply provision of any financial or other support.Information on visas is available on the web site of the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.  If you apply for a visa at an embassy, please complete the form below to obtain the letter of guarantee and fax it to +386 1 241 72 96 or send it by e-mail to registration@cd-cc.si.

Participants who already possess a valid Schengen visa type C or a valid residence permit issued by another Schengen country do not need to obtain an additional visa to enter Slovenia.

How do I apply for a visa?

You need to follow these steps:

  1. Register for the conference and pay the registration fee.
  2. Download and complete the Letter of Guarantee form and send your request to registration@cd-cc.si.
  3. On receipt of the completed form, a letter of guarantee will be issued and sent to you by email and an original by post.
  4. Should you require the letter of guarantee immediately please make this clear when returning the form.  It can be sent to you by DHL, however the cost must be paid in advance.
  5. After you have received your letter of guarantee contact the relevant embassy.
