I am happy to announce that apart from the Application Centre in New Delhi, VFS Global will start extending services to Slovenian visa applicants also at their Centres in Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai. Slovenia is a member of European Union, and a member of Schengen group. It is bordering Austria on the
north, Hungary on the east, Croatia on the south and Italy on the west. Its unspoiled natural beauty and diversity – from Alp Mountains, lakes, plains, forests, vineyards, Adriatic Sea and Karst caves – and rich cultural heritage, make her a true boutique country and cater to many different tastes of visitors.
We hope that visa services offered by such an experienced operator as VFS Global in these 6 metropolitan cities will bring Slovenia closer to Indian people, and will result in many more visitors from India, either for business, tourism, sport, education or just to feel SLOVEnia.”Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia
