Useful Information

 EU STUDENTS

Health insurance: Students from within the EU area should bring with them basic EU health insurance from their own county – the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). For additional types of health insurance, accident insurance, etc., they may enter one of international health insurance schemes (e.g. CORIS, STA) in Slovenia. Also, they are advised to make a copy of their health insurance and leave it with their friend, mentor, etc., in case of an accident.

Registration of residence: When you arrive and find yourself a temporary residence in Slovenia you need to register with the authorities. That means you go to the City Council and its Administrative Unit where you fill out a form and register with the town (you will need your ID). It is a pretty simple administrative procedure, which you should do within 7 days time.

For their office hours look at their homepage:

Taxes, income tax: Work through the student’s service office: the income received by a foreign student is subject to the same tax rate as that obtained by Slovenian students (you do not need to pay taxes if your earnings are lower than 3.302,70 € per year). A scholarship received by a foreign student in Slovenia is exempted from taxation (Income Tax Act (ZDoh-2), Arts. 25 and 106).

 

NON-EU STUDENTS

Health insurance: Students should be properly insured already at the time of obtaining a residence permit (while still at home). They must get health insurance that covers the EU area or only Slovenia. Students from countries that have signed a special social and health insurance agreement with Slovenia may take the opportunity of that. Also, they are advised to make a copy of their health insurance and leave it with their friend, mentor, etc., in case of an accident.

Residence permit: Students from non-European countries should in order to study in Slovenia obtain a student residence permit prior to their entry into Slovenia. For that purpose they should submit an application for the permit at the Slovenian embassy or the embassy that is authorized for accepting applications for residence permits in Slovenia. Students may request the extension of a residence permit at an administrative division in Slovenia. In order to obtain the residence permit they must submit a proof of student status, a proof of having sufficient financial resources for living, a valid passport, appropriate health insurance, and also indicate a place of temporary residence in Slovenia. The process of obtaining the permit usually takes at least 6 weeks.

Long-term residence visa: Students may enter Slovenia also on the basis of a long-term residence visa. The so-called D Visa may be issued for taking part at a course or another similar kind of education or specialization due to which a foreigner does need a student residence permit.

Registration of residence: When you arrive and find yourself a temporary residence in Slovenia you need to register with the authorities. That means you go to the City Council and its Administrative Unit where you fill out a form and register with the town (you will need your ID).

PROFESSORS

Incoming professors: Professors who come on a short visit and are EU citizens do not need any residence permit. Professors who come on a short visit and originate from countries whose citizens may enter and reside in the country without a visa also do not need to obtain special entry documents. If professors come from a country whose citizens need a visa for entering and residing in Slovenia, the professors must obtain a visa for short-term residence (C Visa) for which the hosting institution must write a letter of invitation or a letter of guarantee.

Taxes, income tax: Professors are liable to income tax. If there exists a double tax avoidance agreement between Slovenia and the professor’s country (KIDO 7), the professor should full in a KIDO 7 form so that the tax is not assessed in Slovenia but in his or her own country.
