The Employment and Work of Aliens Act (Ur.l.RS, No 4/06  officially consolidated text) is in the procedure of being amended and article 14 is intended to be implemented by the amendments. As regards employed and self-employed activity the proposal is to give the priority in authorising family members to exercise an employed or self-employed activity before other aliens. The amended Act shall also provide conditions to be fulfilled in the case of self-employment and the conditions under which so called personal work permits for the period of three years shall be issued. <hr></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan=2></td> <td><b>A</b>nswers on <i>this</i> question by <i>other</I> countries: <br> <a href="../Austria/#B30"> AUS</a> <a href="../Belgium/#B30"> BEL</a> <a href="../Cyprus/#B30"> CYP</a> <a href="../CzechRepublic/#B30"> CZE</a> <a href="../Denmark/#B30"> DEN</a> <a href="../Estonia/#B30"> EST</a> <a href="../Finland/#B30"> FIN</a> <a href="../France/#B30"> FRA</a> <a href="../Germany/#B30"> GFR</a> <a href="../Greece/#B30"> GRE</a> <a href="../Hungary/#B30"> HUN</a> <a href="../Ireland/#B30"> IRE</a> <a href="../Italy/#B30"> ITA</a> <a href="../Latvia/#B30"> LAT</a> <a href="../Lithuania/#B30"> LIT</a> <a href="../Luxembourg/#B30"> LUX</a> <a href="../Malta/#B30"> MAL</a> <a href="../Netherlands/#B30"> NET</a> <a href="../Poland/#B30"> POL</a> <a href="../Portugal/#B30"> POR</a> <a href="../Slovakia/#B30"> SVK</a> SVN <a href="../Spain/#B30"> SPA</a> <a href="../Sweden/#B30"> SWE</a> <a href="../UnitedKingdom/#B30"> GBR</a> </td> </tr> <tr><td colspan=4><hr></td></tr> <tr> <td><font color=blue><a NAME="B31">B.31</a></td> <td colspan=3><a href=#top title="top of page">top</a> <b>Q</b>: Did your country make use of the exception to that equal treatment allowed under Article 14(2) of the Directive? </td> </tr> <tr><td colspan=4><hr></td></tr> <tr> <td colspan=2><i>answer Slovenia</i></td> <td colspan=2><b>A</b>: See <a href="#B30">B.30</a> <hr></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan=2></td> <td><b>A</b>nswers on <i>this</i> question by <i>other</I> countries: <br> <a href="../Austria/#B31"> AUS</a> <a href="../Belgium/#B31"> BEL</a> <a href="../Cyprus/#B31"> CYP</a> <a href="../CzechRepublic/#B31"> CZE</a> <a href="../Denmark/#B31"> DEN</a> <a href="../Estonia/#B31"> EST</a> <a href="../Finland/#B31"> FIN</a> <a href="../France/#B31"> FRA</a> <a href="../Germany/#B31"> GFR</a> <a href="../Greece/#B31"> GRE</a> <a href="../Hungary/#B31"> HUN</a> <a href="../Ireland/#B31"> IRE</a> <a href="../Italy/#B31"> ITA</a> <a href="../Latvia/#B31"> LAT</a> <a href="../Lithuania/#B31"> LIT</a> <a href="../Luxembourg/#B31"> LUX</a> <a href="../Malta/#B31"> MAL</a> <a href="../Netherlands/#B31"> NET</a> <a href="../Poland/#B31"> POL</a> <a href="../Portugal/#B31"> POR</a> <a href="../Slovakia/#B31"> SVK</a> SVN <a href="../Spain/#B31"> SPA</a> <a href="../Sweden/#B31"> SWE</a> <a href="../UnitedKingdom/#B31"> GBR</a> </td> </tr> <tr><td colspan=4><hr></td></tr> <tr> <td><font color=blue><a NAME="B32">B.32</a></td> <td colspan=3><a href=#top title="top of page">top</a> <b>Q</b>: Article 15 (autonomous residence permit) <br>After how many years are spouses, unmarried partners and children entitled to an autonomous residence permit under national law?
