State Department: Slovenia - Consular Information Sheet, October 24, 1994

Slovenia - Consular Information Sheet
October 24, 1994

Country Description: Slovenia, independent from Yugoslavia since 1991, is a moderately developed European nation which enjoys the highest per capita GNP of the former Communist countries. Essentially unaffected by the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina, tourist facilities are available but may be limited, especially in the more rural parts of the country.

Entry Requirements: A passport is necessary but no visa is required for stays of up to three months. Persons staying longer than three months must obtain residence permits from the Ministry of the Interior offices serving the area where they reside. Additional information may be obtained from the Embassy of Slovenia at 1525 New Hampshire Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20036, telephone: (202) 667-5363, fax: (202) 667-4563. Information may also be obtained at the Slovenian consulate in New York, telephone: (212) 370-3006.

Medical Facilities: Adequate medical care is readily available. Doctors and hospitals often expect immediate payment in cash for health services. U.S. medical insurance is not always valid outside the United States; hence, travelers have found supplemental medical insurance with specific overseas coverage useful. Information about English-speaking doctors is available at the U.S. Embassy. Further information on health matters can be obtained from the Centers for Disease Control's international travelers hotline, tel.: (404) 332-4559.

Crime Information: Crime in Slovenia is rare, but has increased since the onset of civil unrest in neighboring countries. As in any country, travelers, especially those who appear affluent, can become targets of pickpockets and purse snatchers, especially at railroad stations and airports.

The loss or theft of a U.S. passport abroad should be reported immediately to the local police and the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. The Department of State's pamphlets "A Safe Trip Abroad" is available from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. It provides useful information on travel and protecting personal security while traveling abroad.

Drug Penalties: U.S. citizens are subject to the laws of the country in which they are traveling. Penalties for possession, use, and trafficking in illegal drugs are strict, and convicted offenders can expect jail sentences and fines.

Registration: U.S. citizens may register and obtain updated information on travel and security within Slovenia at the U.S. Embassy.

Embassy Location: The U.S. Embassy in Ljubljana is located at Prazakova 4, 61000 Ljubljana, telephone (386-61) 301-427, fax (386-61) 301-401.

No. 94-250
