TYPES OF RESIDENCE PERMIT
- temporary residence permit: you apply for this permit when you have a provable purpose of residence in Slovenia. When you meet the conditions, a permit is issued for a fixed period (not more than one year). You extend it under the same conditions as it was issued to you. An application to obtain the first temporary residence permit may be lodged either by you or your employer, and it shall be filed with the diplomatic mission or consulate of the Republic of Slovenia abroad. If you are legally residing in Slovenia at the time of issuing the first permit in the Republic of Slovenia and you have already submitted your fingerprints at a diplomatic mission or consulate of the Republic of Slovenia abroad, the first temporary residence permit may be served in the Republic of Slovenia by the competent authority that issued the first temporary residence permit (at the administrative unit in the area where you reside).
- permanent residence permit: you apply for this permit after a fixed, continuous and lawful period of residence in Slovenia. It is issued without limitation of duration, and in the application you also do not need to show the purpose of permanent residence in Slovenia.
In the process of obtaining a residence permit or registering their residence, foreigners are obliged to obtain a tax number in order to have access to compulsory social security coverage. Entry into the tax register and acquisition of a tax number shall fall within the responsibility of the Financial Administration of the Republic of Slovenia. Please check their website for more information.
