Living in the Republic of Slovenia
Temporary residence permit


Migration is a way of life in the modern world. Like other Member States of the European Union, Slovenia supports the integration of foreigners holding a residence permit. Slovenia adheres to the principles and values of equality, freedom and mutual cooperation.

The methods and conditions of entry into Slovenia differ depending on whether the person entering the country is a citizen of a country that is a member of the European Economic Area (European Union Member States, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein are all part of the EEA), or a national of a third country.

Foreign citizens need to report their presence in Slovenia and the address at which they will be staying to the nearest police station within three days of entering the country and, upon leaving the country, report that they are no longer staying at that address, irrespective of the duration of their stay.

The Administrative Unit in Ljubljana is opening a SPECIAL RECEPTION DESK for accepting applications for a temporary residence permit for study purposes (first application and extension of the permit).

From Monday, 26 September 2022, international students can register at the main entrance of the Ljubljana Administrative Unit, Tobačna ulica 5, 1000 Ljubljana. It is not necessary to register before that. Click on the link to open the location in map. 

A special reception desk will be open during the office hours of the Administrative Unit:

  • Monday, Tuesday and Thursday: 08:00 - 18:00
  • Wednesday: 08:00 - 19:00
  • Friday: 08:00 - 14:00

Please prepare all the relevant documentation required for the issue of the temporary residence permit. Below you can find the forms and a more detailed description of the procedure.

When renewing the permit, you can submit an application even if you do not yet have a certificate of enrollment. You will have to submit the certificate of enrollment later.
