Dear Visitor,

The Honorary Consulate General of the Republic of Slovenia has been serving Turkish and Slovenian citizens since 1996 to develop social, cultural and commercial relations between Turkey and Slovenia to keep this mutual business alliance alive for both countries.

I have taken over the post with same ideals and aims from Mr. Ersin Arıoğlu who served as the Consul General of the Republic of Slovenia and was awarded by the Slovenian Government with the Silver Honorary Order in recognition of his meritorious services enhancing the development of economic cooperation between Turkey and Slovenia during his post in 1996-2002.

We hope to make your visa and temporary residence permit applications easier, make contribution to possible trade cooperation that you intend to develop in Slovenia and make your visit to Slovenia more pleasant with available information on our webpage.

In case you have any other questions other than those stated on our website, please contact us by phone or e-mail. We respond to your questions both in Turkish and English.

I avail myself of this opportunity to express my highest consideration.

Mustafa Başar Arıoğlu
