The Regulation Amending and Updating the Regulation on the Method of Ensuring Rights to Persons with Temporary Protection
On Thursday, 1 December 2022, the Government of the Republic of Slovenia adopted the Regulation Amending and Updating the Regulation on the Method of Ensuring Rights to Persons with Temporary Protection, which entered into force on Saturday, 3 December 2022.
The main novelty of the Regulation is that the financial support for private accommodation is to be granted for the period of six months or for the duration of the rental contract or the agreement on the use of the property, if the rental period is shorter than six months. If a person is applying for financial allowance for private accommodation for the first time, the private accommodation financial allowance shall be granted from the day the application is submitted up to and including the last day of the sixth month following the month in which the application was submitted.
The Regulation also deletes the possibility of transferring the private accommodation allowance by postal order, however, the allowance can either be paid out in cash at the Office premises or transferred to a transaction account.
The amended Regulation also specifies more precisely the procedure for family members who will no longer be living with the persons under obligation due to their studies (moving to a student residence, dormitory, private accommodation in the city of studying). They are required to submit a new application for financial support for private accommodation, along with the relevant supporting documents as specified in the Regulation.
The amendments also brought about changes to the Application for financial support for private accommodation.
