Slovenia Woek Permit

In order to acquire a long-term work permit, one should submit application for the Single residence permit for work and residence in Slovenia, also called The Single Permit. It supports immigration of professionals to Slovenia. Although this is only one of several ways to obtain a work and residence permit, it is one of the most reliable and popular ones. It is also favorable as it provides a fallback in case the applicant’s business endures a setback and/or negative projections.

After applying for The Single Permit, The administrative unit that issues them will automatically begin the process of obtaining consent from the Employment Service of Slovenia. Foreigner or his employer have opportunity to apply for The Single Permit.

In some cases, some workers may apply for a personal work permit. It enables them to freely select employment for a certain period. Candidates should apply for single permit at an administrative unit or the diplomatic or consular office in their residential country.


Other options to obtain a work permit

Employment with labor market control

Those who want to be eligible for this option can open a company in which they have to be a shareholder, but the appointed representative is someone else. To be able to apply for single work and residence permit, the company you plan to work in must previously publish a vacancy. You should submit it at the Employment Office of Slovenia. They will check if there are suitable candidates for this position in their registry. They will do so by the requirements you send to them. The procedure is called labor market control. In a case the Employment office founds Slovenian applicants unsuitable, you can apply for work and residence permission. When you obtain it, you will be employed in your company on a specific job position. In this case, the company does not need to prove active business conduct such as investment, minimum turnover, or employing EU or Slovenian citizen.

European Union Blue Card

Those who wish to reside and work in Slovenia can also apply for a European Union Blue Card. In this case, you should be employed as an expert with work experience. Diploma or any other educational certificate must be verified by the Slovenian Ministry of Education. After getting a response from the Employment office that there are no other suitable candidates that are Slovenian citizens for the job position, you can apply for an EU Blue Card. European Blue Card is valid for two years. Unlike other residence and work permits the EU Blue Card gives the right to immediate family reunification.
