Birth Registration for refugees

If you are a recognized refugee and your child is born in Slovenia, the child will be registered automatically and free of charge. A state registrar visits the hospital and carries out the procedure. The parents are given a copy of the birth certificate and the child is granted the same residence permit with the same validity as parents. You can find information on registering the birth of your child on the government website (Slovenian and English language).

You can also turn to PIC, who can provide free legal information on birth registration for refugees
