1st step for business immigration for non-EU citizens – company registration

Starting a business in Europe starts with company registration. In Slovenia, non-EU citizens can register an LTD company. You would need to provide 7.500€ founding capital, business address in Slovenia and Slovenian tax numbers for all shareholders and representatives.

It takes around 1 month to register your company and would require your physical presence in Slovenia. Once you have finished with company registration, you can proceed to the steps of business immigration to Slovenia.

Business immigration for non-EU citizens – fulfilling conditions of active business conduct

It was a common misconception that only opening a company in Slovenia already gives you the right to relocate here. But it is not so, and a company can only employ non-EU citizens if it fulfills specific conditions.

The company can choose between 3 conditions:

  • investing 50.000€ into fixed assets of the company,
  • employing an EU citizen for 6 months and pay him/her at least minimal salary,
  • showing company turnover at least 10.000€ month for 6 consecutive months.

You do not need to fulfill all conditions but can decide only on one. Once the company has fulfilled one of them, it can start employing non-EU citizens by obtaining a work and residence permit for them.
