EMPLOYMENT AND WORK

 

 

Single permit, highly qualified employment (EU Blue Card), seasonal work

If you wish to stay in Slovenia for the purposes of employment or work, to perform work as a self-employed person, to perform seasonal work, for cross-border provision of services as a posted worker or commuter, you are required to obtain a single permit for employment or work. 


An application for a single permit may be lodged by yourself or by your employer or representative of one of the contracting parties on your behalf. The application must be accompanied by certificates and other supporting documents confirming the fulfilment of the conditions of residence and of employment or work. After receiving your application, the administrative unit will, as a matter of course, obtain the approval of the Employment Service of Slovenia for granting a single permit. You or your employer are not required to obtain a work permit before submitting an application for a residence permit. The single permit for residence and work enables you to enter, reside and work in Slovenia.


The same process applies to a residence permit for the purposes of highly qualified employment (EU Blue Card). An application for an EU Blue Card may be lodged by yourself or by your employer and has to be accompanied by relevant supporting documents relating to the conditions of residence and highly qualified work. After receiving your application for an EU Blue Card, the administrative unit will, as a matter of course, obtain the approval of the Employment Service of Slovenia. For that reason, you or your employer are not required to obtain a work permit before submitting an application for an EU Blue Card. A temporary residence permit for the purpose of highly qualified employment is issued in the form of the Blue Card as a single permit allowing you to enter, stay and work in Slovenia.
