The 2TM Company has been operating in the education and immigration service market since 2015 and offers vast professional support in immigration to Europe.
Immigration to Europe is the process of legal moving on various grounds to a country of the European Union for foreign citizens from third countries. This process is not easy and requires up-to-date knowledge of the legal framework and strict compliance with the moving requirements. Depending on whether you are moving to Europe for the purpose of study, work, personal business or family reunion, the legal requirements will differ as well.
2TM specialists are ready to provide comprehensive support in obtaining a residence permit in Europe.
Residence Permit in Europe for Study Purposes
The 2TM Company offers services for admission to educational institutions in Slovenia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Germany, and Hungary, as well as for obtaining or extending a residence permit for study purposes in these countries. It also helps with the student’s family reunion procedure.
To be eligible to obtain a residence permit in Europe for study purposes, you must first be enrolled in the chosen study programme and receive confirmation of enrolment from the educational institution. This document will serve as a basis for the subsequent receipt of a residence permit.
In Slovakia and Hungary, students receive a residence permit once for the entire period of studies. In Slovenia, the Czech Republic, and Germany, the study residence permit is extended based on the successful completion of each academic year and the transition to the next year. If you are in the process of entering or have already entered a university or college in Europe, contact us for assistance in obtaining a residence permit.
Europe does not limit the age of students for admission to colleges and universities. This means that, at the time of enrolment, they may already have their own family. Such students, as well as foreigners with other purposes for obtaining a residence permit, have access to the family reunion procedure. Minor children and the student’s spouse are subject to the family reunion programme.
Residence Permit in Europe for Business Immigration Purposes
The 2TM Company offers business immigration services in Slovenia. Business immigration is a relocation programme based on individual commercial activity. We will help you determine the relevant commercial activities for your company, register an available form of a legal entity, obtain a legal address, and solve accompanying tasks at the start of the company’s operation. We will also help entrepreneurs’ families go through the reunion procedure. We will be of use for extending the residence permit and obtaining permanent residence in Slovenia.
In Slovenia, a foreigner, who does not yet live in the country, can open only a limited liability company. When registering such a legal entity, an investment of the authorized capital in the amount of 7.500 euros is required. To obtain a Slovenian residence permit to launch such a company, an entrepreneur will need to demonstrate the active work of the company for a period of 6 months. This could be an investment, a hired local employee, or the achievement of the company’s regulated monthly turnover. Alternatively, there is an option for employment under a university diploma if the company already has a local director.
A foreigner receives an opportunity to register an individual entrepreneur and renew a residence permit for the purpose of self-employment after a year of residence in Slovenia under a residence permit obtained according to any of the legally supported grounds.
Family Reunion in Europe
2TM provides family reunion services in Slovenia for study, business immigration, and employment purposes, or simply after a family reunion with a citizen of Slovenia.
The applicant’s spouse and minor children are subject to the reunion programme.
According to the updates of the Aliens Act approved in 2021, a family reunion in Slovenia is possible two years after the first residence permit was received by a family member who is reuniting with his or her relatives. Read more here. In the case of Slovenian citizens or foreigners who already live in Slovenia under a permanent residence permit, the family reunion is available immediately.
2TM assists in verifying compliance with the grounds for starting the family reunion procedure and proceeding with it.
Residence Permit in Europe for Employment Services
The employment procedure in Europe for foreigners includes the following steps:
- Job hunting, interviewing.
- Obtaining an employment contract.
- Alignment with the labour exchange.
- Obtaining an employment residence permit.
- Arrival in the country and conclusion of the contract.
2TM assists in obtaining a residence permit for employment purposes in Slovenia. Our company does not provide job hunting services. You can apply to us if you already have an invitation from a local Slovenian employer. 2TM will help with the procedure for approving a candidate for employment, prepare/check an employment contract, prepare documents for the registration of a working residence permit, and monitor the case status in Slovenia.
The first residence permit for employment purpose must be issued in the country of the applicant’s current residence.
Residence Permit for Blue Card EU Purpose – EU Blue Card
The 2TM Company assists foreign citizens and their families in obtaining an EU Blue Card in the Republic of Slovenia.
The Blue Card combines a work and residence permit in the EU for third-country nationals with unique professional experience and education. Thanks to this opportunity, highly qualified specialists can get a job and build a career in a European country with a high standard of living and guaranteed high wages.
Not every employer in Slovenia can initiate the employment of a unique employee and provide this employee with a Blue Card. In addition to other requirements for the company itself, the candidate must be offered a contract for a period of at least 2 years and a salary that exceeds the market average level by at least 1.5 times.
The advantages of obtaining a Blue Card in Slovenia are that a residence permit is issued immediately for 2 years. The family reunion procedure of such employees can take place without waiting for a minimum period of residence in the country.
