What are my rights and responsibilities?
If you are granted international protection you have the same rights as Slovenian citizens, except the right to vote, be elected for public office, work in the army or the police or buy a real estate in Slovenia.
As a foreigner, you have the responsibility to respect Slovenian Constitution and laws, and to respect the rights of others. You must inform authorities responsible for assisting with integration into the environment about: changing your place of residence, personal name, marital status, acquiring new citizenship, employment, financial social assistance, income and other benefits and assets.
The application for citizenship is submitted at the administrative unit in the area where you have registered your address. There is a lot of documentation to complete and the process can take a long time.
