Embassy of the RS Washington /Consular Services, Visas /Change of Address /


In accordance with the Residence Registration Act citizens of Slovenia who emigrated from Slovenia  are obligated to register their new permanent address abroad.

If the exact address is unkonwn at the time of departure from Slovenia, Slovenian citizens can notify the authorities any time thereafter, including through our Embassy. The exact address and updates thereof are important for the exercise of the voting rights of the Slovenian citizens, as all Slovenian citizens are registered in the electoral roll. The election material is sent by mail, therefore the registration and updating of the permanent address is important for receiving the election materials in due time.

Permanent address abroad for a child can be registered by both parents, or one of the parents with the consent of the other, or other legal representative.
There is no need for the consent of the other parent in the following cases:
- if they register the child at an address which is identical to the address of both parents;
- if the registration is performed for a foreigner's child;
- if the child's address is registered by the parent to whom the child has been entrusted for care and education;
- if the child's place of residence has been determined by an agreement on care, education and maintenance of the child or by the decision of the competent court;
- if the residence of the other parent is unknown;
- if the other parent's legal competence or parental rights have been revoked;
- if the other parent is prevented from exercising the parental right.

Permanent address registration may affect your tax obligations.

More information on international taxation is available on the website of FURS and here.
