We contacted an immigration agency, because we did not have a full understanding of how to move, what visa to apply for, and what it would take, and we did not want to drag this issue out. The consultant told us that it is possible to move to Slovenia with a small amount to open a business - Slovenia is developing its economy and is interested in attracting people who are ready to work, earn money and create new jobs.
We began to collect documents and prepare to move. We sold our apartment in Kaluga, invested in the opening of a company in Slovenia (for that purpose we flew to Slovenia for the first time with a tourist visa, and we fell in love with the country at first sight). Quite quickly - 4 months - together with the experts on emigration gathered all the documents, applied for a visa, received permission and flew to a new life.
Before that first visit to Slovenia to open a company, we have never been to this country, but many times have traveled to other European countries, especially I liked Italy, and I hoped that the neighboring Slovenia will be at least a little bit like it. And so it turned out - it was very clean, beautiful, comfortable and civilized in a European way, although Slovenia is like Italy only in its southern part.
