Civil registration


Country Report: Civil registration Last updated: 25/05/22


The birth of a child is registered automatically and free of charge for a beneficiary of international protection, the same as for all children born in Slovenia. A state registrar visits the hospital and carries out the procedure. The parents are given a copy of the birth certificate.

One identified problem in relation to marriage registration is that partners cannot be registered as married in official records if they do not present the requisite documentary evidence.

Access to social welfare and integration rights for beneficiaries of international protection, as well as their reunited family members, do not depend on civil registration.
