Slovenia has announced plans to fast-track the employment of foreign nationals in regions hardest hit, aiming to swiftly alleviate the aftermath of catastrophic floods, as reported by the Slovenian government.
Luka Mesec, the Slovenian Minister for Labour, revealed that the hiring process for foreigners would be expedited to promptly address the destruction caused by the unprecedented floods that struck the nation in early August.
The Slovenian Ministry of Labour is currently compiling a list of professions required for the restoration efforts.
Foreigners arriving to work in the flood-affected areas will now receive a work permit from the Employment Service within ten days. This will allow them to begin their duties even before receiving permission from administrative units, a process which typically takes up to three months.
Furthermore, Mesec is advocating for stricter monitoring of businesses that will employ foreigners under this accelerated procedure
