If your company is sending employees to Slovenia—Fragomen is here to help. Working closely with our Local Advisors in Slovenia, we provide the immigration strategies and support you need to get your employees on the ground as quickly as possible. 

Slovenian law provides many solutions to help employers of foreign nationals. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility and benefits for accompanying family members vary by visa classification.

Business visitors to Slovenia typically use a local version of the Schengen C Visa, unless they are visa exempt based on their nationality. The Schengen area limits stays to 90 days in a 180-day period.   

The main work authorization category for non-EU nationals (excluding Croatian nationals) is the Single Permit, a combined work and residence permit suitable for all work activities in Slovenia. The permit is issued based on the length of the contract or agreement, up to one year, and is renewable.

EU nationals, excluding Croatian nationals, generally obtain an EU residence permit (based on their residence registration).

EU/European Economic Area or Swiss company employees may perform work activities on the basis of a work notification, provided their activities do not exceed 90 days in a 180-day period. An EU residence permit (for EU nationals, excluding Croatian nationals) or a Single Permit is required for stays beyond this period.
