​• Slovakia's immigration system provides several options for employers of foreign nationals. Slovakia ​is a member of the European Union (EU) and the Schengen Area. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility and benefits for accompanying family members vary by permit type.

• Business visitors to Slovakia typically use a local version of the Schengen C Visa, which foreign nationals are required to obtain before travel unless they are visa exempt based on their nationality. The Schengen Area generally limits stays to 90 days in any 180-day period.

• The main work authorization categories are the EU Intra-Company Transferee Permit, suitable for the intracompany​ transfer of managers, specialists and graduate trainees from outside the European Union; the Single Permit for Local Hires, suitable for locally hiring experienced foreign workers where no local staff is available; and the EU Blue Card, suitable for local hiring of highly skilled, highly paid workers. EU/European Economic Area (EEA)/Swiss nationals do not require work or residence permits, but they must report their stay and register their residence if their stay exceeds three months.​
