Using a PEO Service With Immigration Support For Expat Hiring In Slovenia

If you have plans to hire expatriate personnel for international assignments inSlovenia, you have a lot of key considerations to make. Some of the most important include:

  • Navigating Slovenian unique immigration procedures
  • Procuring all the documents required for a work permit
  • Managing employment and payroll after your workers get their visas

Most of the time, expats are sent abroad to work on short-term projects, which means trying to set up your own subsidiary isn’t practical in terms of time as well as money. A simpler, more cost-effective solution is equal.

If you need to pay expats overseas, in Slovenia, in particular, that ideal solution is a global PEO that offers work permit support as a part of their service. Rather than going through the long process of incorporation, a PEO service will guide you through all the steps for Slovenian immigration procedures. When you get your permit/visa, the provider then helps onboard and payroll your expat team for you.

Acumen International has been providing this service for our clients’ expatriate personnel in Slovenia for short- and long-term projects alike. If you want a quick and compliant way to manage this issue, we can help. No matter what business objectives or timelines you have to work with, Acumen International provides end-to-end work permit support. We also stay within full legal compliance with local labor legislation in Slovenia and 190+ other countries.

So, with this in mind, who are the ideal candidates for Acumen’s ‘work permit and hiring expats through a Global PEO’ solution?

  • Employer companies that want to relocate, hire, and pay expats in Slovenia.
  • Experienced, individual professionals that have an employer already prepared to finance their immigration and foreign employment in the country.
  • Companies that plan to send their highly skilled personnel to work for them in Slovenia

Important thing that you may not be aware of. Having a single provider to sponsor your work permit and employ your expats in Slovenia post immigration cuts down on the risks of visa getting rejected.

One thing that sets us apart from other global PEO Service providers is that Acumen also provides additional benefits along with a PEO employment and work permit for expats to be employed on-the-ground. These include:

  • Medical insurance
  • Housing
  • Office rent
  • Mobile phone/car provision for meetings
  • Dependant relocation

Attention: we are not an immigration service! We do not provide a work permit and immigration support as a standalone solution to individuals looking to find jobs overseas.
