A work permit for a foreigner is a condition for entry into the country and residence, employment and work in Slovenia. It is an obligation of the employer to make sure that their worker has the appropriate permit before the start of work. Acquisition of work permit for EU citizens is not required. An EU citizen must only apply for residence permit in due time. However, acquisition of work permit for a non-EU citizen is mandatory before the start of work and requires much more time and preparation of documentation.

Acquisition of work permit for a foreign citizen and obligations of the employer
A work permit for a foreigner or its acquisition can be a complex and time-consuming process.

The foreigner himself can do the procedure also or engage the help of experts, such as the ones we have in the company DATA d.o.o.
Experts know in detail the legislation and conditions for obtaining a work permit, which also depend on the country from which the foreigner originates. They will ensure the acquisition of the work and residence permit for your employee as soon as possible.
Acquisition of work permit for a foreigner: documentation and deadlines
You can obtain a work permit for a foreigner by providing the foreigner with an employment contract in advance, which states the salary and the duration of the employment relationship. If labor market control is also required before the procedure itself, the employment contract must comply with the publication of the vacancy.
If you are not sure what an employment contract should include, you can contact us. Our legal service will be happy to help you prepare a contract and offer other advice regarding the acquisition of the work and residence permit for the employee.
Work permit for a foreigner: when is labor market control necessary?
If you employ a foreigner as a company representative, labor market control is not necessary. In all other cases, you have to start the process through labor market control.
This means that you publish a vacancy at the Employment Service of the Republic of Slovenia (ZRSZ) The ZRSZ will inform you in a few days whether there are candidates in the records who meet your requirements. If there are no candidates in Slovenia, you can start the acquisition of the work permit for the foreigner.
