Install Mini Split AC Unit

In the planning stages of installing a 18k btu mini split ac system. It requires 230 volts and I have two open
slots on my electric panel, so I should be good to install a 30 amp breaker. What size wire should I run to
the disconnect box on the outside of the house? Thanks in advance.

The correct tag to follow is the one on the unit. It will state minimum ampacity required and maximum overcurrent protection. You can post a picture of the tag if you have the unit.
