According to Delo.si the Administrative Unit (Uprana enota, UE) of Ljubljana is planning a reorganization of work this summer at its Tobačna 5 branch in Ljubljana, which has seen increasing complaints due to long queues for foreigners sorting out their paperwork to live and work in the country.
Delo.si quotes Bojan Babič, who from October 2019 has been in charge of UE Ljubljana, saying that the departments for foreigners and Slovenian citizens at Tobačna will be separated. At the department where Slovene citizens file different applications and edit personal and other documents, they will change the current system of work by removing the walls that are separating different offices and their waiting rooms, and introduce a unified system of work at the windows, with a single waiting room for all clients.
For foreigners, they will increase the number of receptionists and set up separate offices – for first time applications, for completing and picking up the documents, etc. According to Babič, the aim is to establish a system which would allow foreigners to visit the premises twice at most instead of the current multiple visits, while first-time applications could also be filed at other branches of the UE in Ljubljana.
