A refugee’s travel document is issued to a third-country national who has been recognised as a refugee by virtue of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees (Geneva Convention of 28 July 1951) and the 1967 Protocol relating to the Status of Refugees. A holder of a refugee’s travel document is required to be in possession of a visa in order to enter the Republic of Slovenia. As a rule, this travel document ensures that the refugee is able to return to the country which recognises him/her as a refugee at any time. A Contracting Party undertakes that the holder of a refugee’s travel document issued by it shall be readmitted to its territory at any time during the period of its validity if he/she has been authorised to travel to another country by the Contracting Party.
An entry visa for the Republic of Slovenia may be obtained at a diplomatic mission or consular post of the Republic of Slovenia.
In accordance with Council Regulation (EC) No. 539/2001 of 15 March 2001, a recognised refugee who resides in an EU Member State and is a holder of a refugee’s travel document issued by this EU Member State (also applies to the EEA and Switzerland) may enter the Republic of Slovenia without a visa.
