Students from within the EU area should bring with them basic EU health insurance from their own county. For additional types of health insurance, accident insurance, etc., they may enter one of international health insurance schemes (e.g. CORIS, STA) in Slovenia. Also, they are advised to make a copy of their health insurance and leave it with their friend, mentor, etc., in case of accident.
Registration at a Public Administration Division, Department for Foreigners (The Foreigners Act, Off. Gaz. No. 50/2011 – hereinafter ZTuj-2):
without being properly registered students may reside in Slovenia in the duration of up to 3 months. Should they wish to remain there longer they must register at a Public Administration Division by submitting an application for student residence. A confirmation of student status (e.g. scholarship contract or confirmation of enrolment), a valid ID or passport, sufficient financial means for living (a written statement), and appropriate health insurance should be enclosed (ZTuj-2, Sect. XIII).
