Migration is a way of life in the modern world. Like other Member States of the European Union, Slovenia supports the integration of foreigners holding a residence permit. Slovenia adheres to the principles and values of equality, freedom and mutual cooperation. The methods and conditions of entry into Slovenia differ depending on whether the person entering the country is a citizen of a country that is a member of the European Economic Area (European Union Member States, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein are all part of the EEA), or a national of a third country.

Foreign citizens need to report their presence in Slovenia and the address at which they will be staying to the nearest police station within three days of entering the country and, upon leaving the country, report that they are no longer staying at that address, irrespective of the duration of their stay.
