Residence permit in the European Union
for you and your family
Business immigration is a possibility of legal moving to Europe in order to launch a business. It is also one of the most common ways to obtain a residence permit in Europe for citizens of other countries. In Slovenia, the procedure of business immigration covers registering a legal entity, investing or observing other conditions for vigorous activity, as well as obtaining a residence permit in Slovenia, which is at the same time a permit for working with your own company. A businessman who has received a residence permit for the purpose of commercial activity has the right to a subsequent family reunion, local benefits and privileges, a request for permanent residence and subsequent citizenship. That is such person receives almost all the benefits of a European resident.
Depending on the businessman’s country of citizenship, the conditions for staying in Slovenia and obtaining a residence permit may differ. Thus, for EU citizens, compliance with the conditions for vigorous activity performed by the company is not obligatory. Tell us about your tasks, and we will help you fulfil them in Slovenia.
Since 2015, 2TM has been working with business immigration issues and provides full support about moving to Slovenia.
