In September 2015, a single residence and work permit was introduced for foreign nationals in Slovenia.
It is issued by administrative units, the Employment Service of Slovenia (ESS) needing to approve it beforehand.
Work permits continue to be issued for:
- the employment of Croatian citizens in the first two years of their legal residence in Slovenia (in the transitional period following Croatia's EU accession),
- the employment of citizens from Bosnia and Herzegovina (pursuant to the Agreement on the Employment of Bosnia and Herzegovina Citizens in Slovenia), and
- seasonal farming work lasting up to 90 days.
