If you want to stay in Slovenia for employment or work, as a self-employed person, for seasonal work, as a daily migrant worker or as a cross-border posted worker, you must apply for a single work and residence permit.
A national of Bosnia and Herzegovina or the Republic of Serbia must also obtain a work permit under a bilateral agreement, which is considered as consent in the procedure for issuing or renewal of the single permit procedure.
EU citizens and persons granted international protection the same standing in the labour market as Slovenian citizens.
On 2 September 2011 the amendment to the Agreement on Social Security between Slovenia and BIH entered into force, with which insured persons from BIH who have temporary residence permit in Slovenia also became eligible for benefit payment.
The agreement on social security between Slovenia and Serbia entered into force on 1 September 2019. It sets out the conditions for employing Serbian nationals and the procedures for issuing work permits, but does not include the right to reside in Slovenia.
