Introduction

The Slovene International Protection Act recognizes two statuses: refugee status (permanent residence permit) and subsidiary protection status (temporary residence permit).

Individuals under international protection have free access to the labour market and do not need a work permit. Beneficiaries of international protection have free access to the labour market 9 months after lodging an asylum application, if a decision has not been received yet and the delay cannot be attributed to the beneficiary of international protection. Persons with a recognized refugee status do not need a work permit and have equal access to the labour market as Slovene nationals. Once granted international protection in Slovenia, beneficiaries of international protection have the right to attend a free-of-charge Slovene language course, as well as a right to financial and social assistance, child benefits, social welfare, public services and integration activities. They can also get their skills, diploma, certificates or trainings recognized at the ENIC-NARIC centre in Slovenia.
