Licence to carry out foreign exchange transactions

To carry out foreign exchange transactions, a licence (except banks) must be acquired from the Bank of Slovenia.

To acquire the licence, the documentation and evidence of fulfilment of the conditions must be submitted, and a fee for decision-making on the request must be paid. A special application to acquire the licence is not prescribed. Applicants merely address the written request to the Bank of Slovenia and attach the required evidence.

In addition to the licence, the Bank of Slovenia also issues a label for the foreign exchange office. Following the reception of the label, the foreign exchange office may commence its operations. The label must be placed on a visible spot.
