No. 08
The Embassy of the United States of America presents its
compliments to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of
Slovenia and has the honor to propose that, on a reciprocal basis,
dependents of employees of the United States Government assigned
to official duty in Slovenia and dependents of employees of the
Slovenian Government assigned to official duty in the United
States be authorized to be employed in the receiving country.
For the purpose of this Agreement,
"Dependents" shall mean:
-- spouses;
-- unmarried dependent children under 21 years of age;
-- unmarried dependent children under 23 years of age who
are in full-time attendance as students at a post secondary
educational institution; and
-- unmarried children who are physically or mentally
disabled.
For the purpose of this Agreement,
"Official employees" shall mean:
-- diplomatic agents, consular officers, and members of
support staffs assigned to diplomatic missions, consular
offices and missions to international organizations.
In the case of dependents who seek employment in the 2
United States, an official request must be made by the Embassy of
the Republic of Slovenia in Washington to the Office of Protocol in
the Department of State. After the processing of the official
request, the Slovene Embassy will be informed that the dependent
may accept employment.
In the case of dependents who seek employment in Slovenia,
the request shall be made by the Embassy of the United States of
America to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of
Slovenia, which, after verification, shall then inform the United
States Embassy that the dependent may accept employment. For
employment in Slovenia, no work permits will be required.
The Government of the United States of America and the
Government of the Republic of Slovenia wish to confirm their
understanding that dependents who obtain employment under this
Agreement and who have immunity from the jurisdiction of the
receiving state in accordance with the Vienna Convention on
Diplomatic Relations or the Convention on the Privileges and
Immunities of the United Nations, or any other applicable
international agreement, have no immunity from civil or
administrative jurisdiction with respect to matters arising out of
such employment. Requests by the receiving state for waivers of
criminal immunity for acts arising out of employment under this
Agreement shall be given serious consideration by the sending
state. Such dependents are also responsible for payments of income
and social security taxes on any remuneration received as a result
of employment in the receiving state. Dependents continue to enjoy
all other privileges and immunities to which they are entitled.
The Embassy of the United States of America further
purposes that, if these provisions are acceptable to the Government
of the Republic of Slovenia this note and reply of the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia concurring therein shall
constitute an agreement between the two governments which shall
enter into force on a date when the Government of the Republic of
Slovenia notifies the Government of the United States of America
by diplomatic note of the completion of Slovenia's constitutional
requirements. The Agreement shall remain in force until ninety
days after the date of the written notification from either
government to the other of an intention to terminate.
The Embassy of the United States of America avails itself of
this opportunity to renew to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the
Republic of Slovenia the assurances of its highest consideration.
