Business immigration – is not only the easiest way to move to Slovenia, but also to get a work permit and to start your own business in EU. Opening a company in Slovenia allows foreign entrepreneur to receive residence permit for him and his family.
Receiving a temporary residence under existing program assumes registration of a company in Slovenian territory and investment in the amount of €7,500. Job creation is encouraged by the Government, but not a prerequisite. The requirement for extension of the residence permit and processing of the citizenship of Slovenia, is to contribute to the main capital of own company and to confirm stable profitability of the business.
Minimal investment amount is €50,000.
Investments can be directed at tangible and intangible assets of the company. Investing is carried out during the first half-year of operation of the Slovenian company. Buying real estate for personal use or securities does not provide for the acquisition of Slovenian citizenship.
There is the possibility to simplify the procedure for registering citizenship for foreigners, in exceptional cases related to the improvement of the Slovenian industry.
