Those who move to the country note some pitfalls. This applies to both living and running a business.The disadvantages are:

- expensive housing rent;
- high unemployment rate;
- difficulties with formal employment;
- long residence permit approval procedure.
For children under three years old, it is difficult to find a place in a nursery. Private nurseries cost 300-500 euros per month. Usually family reunification is possible only after two years, or your spouse has to study here. Immigration of retired people to Slovenia is also difficult. Elderly parents go through the whole procedure, regardless of the children.
To top it off, it is difficult to break into the small domestic market. Only a high level of services and quality of goods will help. Then, with a word of mouth, it will work out and Slovenians will appreciate your effort.
