New Data in Immiguru: SLOVENIA – Blue Card (Application in Country)

We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve added the Blue Card (Application in country) process for Slovenia to Immiguru.

The Blue Card is an EU-wide (with some exceptions) immigration process for highly skilled employees with a concrete job offer in the destination country. In Slovenia, the Blue Card can be applied for at a Slovenian consulate abroad or within Slovenia. This is the immigration process applicable when the Blue Card is applied for after the applicant’s entry to Slovenia.

Many thanks to our partners in Slovenia, ODI Law Firm and Relocations Ltd, for their help with this!
