Work in Slovenia

Last update : December 2019

Permission for work and information regarding working rights. Contacts in case of exploitation.

To get permission for work, you need to wait nine months, from the moment you entered the asylum procedure. You can bypass this time limit by visiting the school of Cene Štupar for the Slovenian language course. With the confirmation of enrollment from Cene Stupar school, you can register as a student with your social worker. As a student, you will have access to the labor market. In this case, you do not have to wait for 9 months to get access to the labor market.

REFUGEES WITH STATUS:

Persons with international protection status - refugees - have access to the labor market.
You do not need to get a separate working permit. You have access to work as a Slovenian citizen.

The rights of migrants are regularly violated by the employer. For information about your working rights and their violation, you can contact the organization Delavska Svetovalnica.
