When you have an existing company, you can start to employ EU citizens. You can also employ foreigners under certain conditions. They must have a work and residence permit in Slovenia.
To employ non-EU citizens, they must first obtain a work and residence permit. Applying for it is possible by fulfilling one of the conditions of active business conduct. There are three options how to achieve it:
