We provide assistance to everyone who would like to work in Slovenia, both foreigners who need work permits, as well as companies and entrepreneurs who want to employ foreigners. Obtaining work permits and residence permits for foreigners involves a comprehensive management of the procedure, i.e. from obtaining the necessary documentation, submitting the application and managing the procedure before the competent administrative authorities, to issuing the requisite documents in accordance with the Foreigners Act (ZTuj-2) and the Employment and Work of Foreigners Act (ZZDT-1). We also provide assistance for renewal of work and temporary residence permits.
The procedure for issuing documents takes an average of 2–3 months from the date of submission of a complete application. The duration depends on the workload of the administrative authorities as well as the type of document requested. A distinction must be made in particular between procedures relating to permits for EU or European Economic Area (EEA) citizens, permits for citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and Serbia (SRB), and permits for third-country nationals.
We also manage other administrative procedures related to foreigners, such as:
obtaining a tax number
registration or change of residence
determining the residency status for withholding tax purposes
registration of short-term work as a representative
change of employer with consent
We also provide assistance in posting workers abroad. The employer must comply with the rules on posting workers abroad in the following cases:
when it has a contractual relationship with a business partner from another EU member state and has to send employees to that country for a certain period in order to provide services; or
when it posts its employees to its own company from another EU member state.
We provide companies and entrepreneurs with full support in obtaining the necessary documentation, both those required by domestic administrative authorities and those required by administrative authorities in the country of posting. The posted worker must be provided with the same working and employment conditions as applicable (by law or by collective agreement) in the host country with regard to:
minimum rest periods
maximum work periods
minimum paid annual leave
minimum rate of pay
protection measures for pregnant women, women who have recently given birth and young people (under 18 years of age)
We also sort out all documentation regarding the host country's social security requirements for posted workers (A1 certificate). In addition, we take care of the official registration of posted workers with all required national contact points and websites.
For clients who do not have their own accounting department, we also manage the registration and de-registration of employees in the compulsory insurance system in the Republic of Slovenia (E-Vem).
