Persons under international protection

International protection in the Republic of Slovenia means refugee status and subsidiary protection status.

The Government Office of the Republic of Slovenia for Support and Integration of Migrants is the competent authority for ensuring the rights and implementing integration measures for persons granted international protection. It provides accommodation to persons granted international protection in its own integration houses and other accommodation facilities, or pays for accommodation in a private residence. The decision granting refugee status applies as a permanent residence permit, while the decision granting subsidiary protection status applies as a temporary residence permit.

Integration is a process that with your active participation is intended to provide you with a level of independence which will enable you to fully integrate into life and work in the Republic of Slovenia.

The competent service providing assistance with integration is the Integration Division of the Government Office of the Republic of Slovenia for Support and Integration of Migrants. An integration consultant will be assigned to you and will invite you to an interview and provide you with all the information needed to integrate in the new social environment as soon as possible; later, you will prepare a personal integration plan together.

A personal integration plan will be prepared for a three-year period of assistance with integration into the environment; however, it will be amended or supplemented if necessary. Based on your previous knowledge, skills, abilities and wishes, you and your consultant will together prepare a plan of activities to help you with your integration. A personal integration plan includes, among other things, learning Slovenian, education, opportunities for employment and work, and more.
