Kvalifikacija za Millstreet (English: Qualification for Millstreet; French: Qualification pour Millstreet) was the preselection for the Eurovision Song Contest 1993. Seven countries took part, none of which had participated in the Eurovision Song Contest before, although songs from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia had represented Yugoslavia in past contests. Three qualified for the annual Eurovision in Millstreet, Ireland. It was held on 3 April 1993 at the RTV SLO Broadcasting Centre in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
After the seven competing songs were presented and the juries made their final results, the seven competing artists performed once again on stage, performing songs from their existing repertoire: Bosnia and Herzegovina's Fazla performed "Kiša ruši grad"; Put, who represented Croatia, performed "Mom zavičaju"; Estonia's Janika Sillamaa performed "I Live For Your Love"; Hungary's Andrea Szulák performed "Don't Wanna Stop My Clock"; Dida Drăgan for Romania sang "Blestem (The Curse)"; Slovenia's 1X Band performed "Novo jutro"; and Slovakia's Elán performed "Od Tatier k Dunaju".
From the seven competing countries, the former Yugoslav nations of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia qualified for Eurovision 1993, which was held on 15 May 1993 in Millstreet, Ireland. Because of the new relegation system that had been introduced to Eurovision, all seven countries would be eligible to take part in the 1994 contest.
Each country chooses its entry for the contest through its own selection process. Some countries select their entry through an internal selection, where the network chooses both the song and artist, while others hold national finals where the public can choose the song, the artist, or both.
