Slovak Republic

If your company is sending employees to the Slovak Republic—Fragomen is here to help. Working closely with our Local Advisors in the Slovak Republic, we provide the immigration strategies and support you need to get your employees on the ground as quickly as possible. 

Slovak immigration policy is designed to limit employment-based immigration and strengthen border controls while supporting the development of global partnerships. The policy generally aims to welcome foreign workers in shortage professions who will use their skills to contribute to the growth of the Slovak economy.

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

The main work authorization categories are as follows:

  1. The EU ICT Permit, suitable for intracompany transfers of managers, specialists and graduate trainees from outside the European Union;
  2. The Single Permit, suitable for local hires of experienced workers where no local staff is available; and
  3. The EU Blue Card, suitable for local hires of highly skilled, highly paid workers.

Note:  While EU/European Economic Area (EEA)/Swiss nationals do not require work or residence permits, they must report their stay and complete a health check upon arrival.
