Schengen visa

Slovakia is part of the Schengen Area – territory of 23 countries of the European Union + 2 associated countries of the European Economic Area, which agreed on the abolition of border controls between themselves and on common visa regulations.

By applying for Slovak Visa, a foreigner applies for so-called Schengen Visa which allows him/her to travel inside of the Schengen Area without any restrictions. Schengen Visa holders do not need aditional special visa for Slovakia.

Visa types

Which type of visa the foreigner needs depends on the length and purpose of the stay in Slovakia. There are 4 types:

  • Schengen visa type A = Airport transit visa
  • Schengen visa type B = Transit visa
  • Schengen visa type C = Entry visa
  • Long-term visa D

Schengen visa type A: Airport transit visa

Under normal circumstances, for a layover or transfer between two international flights the foreigner can remain in the international transit zone at the airport without any visa. However, some nationalities are subject to visa requirements, even if they do not leave the international transit zone. Airport transit visas entitle the foreigner only to pass through the international transit area of airports.

Schengen visa type B: Transit visa

This visa entitles foreigners who are traveling from one non-schengen country to another non-schengen country to pass through the Schengen States. The transit cannot exceed 5 days.

Schengen visa type C: Entry visa (Travel visa or Tourist visa)

This visa entitles foreigners to enter the Schengen countries for a visit or several visits, but the duration of the stay cannot exceed 90 days within a period of 6 months from the date of the first entry. A visa can be granted for one or more entries.

Long-term visa D (Residence visa, Student visa or Business visa)

Long term visa can be given for the purpose of granting a residence permit in the Slovak Republic or for the purpose of fulfilling obligations arising from international agreements or where it is in the interest of the Slovak Republic.

With this visa the foreigner is allowed to stay on the territory of Slovakia during the period of its validity and it allows him/her to travel accross Schengen countries, but the duration of the stay cannot exceed 90 days in any period of 6 months.

How to apply for Slovak visa?

Foreigners who are subject to visa requirements and who wish to enter the Schengen Area with the primary purpose of staying in Slovakia, are required to submit an application for visa at the local Slovak Embassy or Consulate-General. If the foreigner has a residence permit in other country than the country of his nationality, he/she can apply for visa at the Embassy / Consulate-General in the country of his current residence.

In some cases, the decision about granting a visa can take time. Foreigners should apply for visa as soon as possible, but not earlier than 3 months before the planned trip. The statutory deadline for granting visas is 30 days after the date of application receipt.

Citizens of countries with which there are signed agreements by the European Community on easier and faster granting of visas are exceptions. In these cases, the deadline for a decision is set at 10 days after the receipt of a complete visa application. The following countries have such an agreement with European Community: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Moldova, Russia, Serbia, Ukraine.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to submit the visa application personally?

Yes, you have to submit the visa application personally on the embassy or consulate and you need to explain the purpose and circumstances of your trip. The visa for children is applied by their legal representative (usually parents).

In certain rare cases the foreigner does not have to be personally on the embassy when applying for a visa. For getting such an exception, it is necessary to contact the Embassy or Consulate General.

What happens if my visa application is rejected?

Visa isn’t legally eligible and the foreigner is not informed about the reason if the visa was rejected, except when he/she is a family member of a EEA citizen, a refugee or a foreigner whom has been given subsidiary protection (it does not apply if he/she is a family member of a Slovak citizen).

Can I appeal against the refusal of a visa?

If a visa application was rejected to a family member of the European Economic Area, to a refugee or a foreigner whom has been given subsidiary protection, the Embassy / Consulate-General of the Slovak Republic is required to issue a document about the decision. Options about how to appeal against the refusal are mentioned in the operative part of the decision document.

Is my visa valid only for the Slovak Republic?

Territorial validity of visas are specified on the visa sticker in the line “Platné pre/Valid for”. Visa may be granted with effect for all Schengen Member States. In this case, the visa sticker says “Platí pre: Schengenské štáty” (Valid for: Schengen states) and the holder of such visa is allowed to move freely throughout the Schengen Area within the validity period.

If the territorial validity is limited, the visa sticker will say “Platí pre: Slovenská republika” (meaning that the visa is only valid for the territory of the Slovak Republic) or “Schengenské štáty – GR” (meaning that the visa is valid for all Schengen states except Greece).

With my visa, can I travel outside the Schengen Area and then enter it again?

Short-term Schengen visa can be granted for one or more entries. If you hold a visa for only one entry and you leave the Schengen Area, your visa is no longer valid for the re-entry. Multiple-entry visa entitles you to multiple entries and exits from the Schengen Area within the validity period.

If I got Schengen visa from the Slovak Embassy, am I allowed to enter Slovakia through an airport which is located outside of the Slovak Republic?

Yes, with a valid Schengen visa you can enter Slovakia through any border crossing – through any airport in the Schengen Area.

What should I do after the arrival in Slovakia?

A foreigner, who holds short-term visa, long-term visa or his/her entry is not subject to a visa, is required to inform a police office within three working days about the location and expected length of stay. EEA nationals must meet this obligation within ten working days of the entry. If he/she is staying at a hotel or other accommodation, the owner of the accommodation facility is required to do that instead of the foreigner.

Can I extend the visa when I am in Slovakia?

Since 1st of December 2008, in rare cases the visa may be extended to 90 days in 6 months. Visa is extended by the Ministry of Interior, only if the foreigner cannot leave the Slovak Republic due to natural disasters, humanitarian grounds or serious personal reasons. Other cases (tourism, family visits, etc.) do not justify the extension of the visa.

  1. Gala Kirke July 22, 2011 at 3:37 pm #

    My name is Gala and I am a Slovak citizen. I am married to a New Zealander and we have two little boys (2 and 4 years old).
    We are currently visiting Slovakia (90 days visa free entry) and would like to extend our stay/tourist visa to 6 months.
    Is this possible or do we have to apply for a residency permit?(We are planning to leave in January next year.)
    If we do have to apply for a residency permit, are we required to get this for our children as well or only for my husband? (All three are the holders of New Zealand passports only.)

    Thank you very much for your help in this matter.

    Yes, you should apply for temporary residence as soon as possible, for your husband and children as well.

    I am an Indian national residing in India. We (myself and wife) were issued visas for travel to Slovakia last week – Vinesh Vijayan ( visa no: 000063224) and my wife Mrs Ramya Nambiar (visa no: 000063225).

    But we have issued visas valid from 10th September 2011 onwards. Kindly note that our date of travel to Slovakia is 7th September 2011 (flight tickets were already submitted in our visa application).

    I had also submitted the hotel confirmation from 7th September 2011 onwards personally during our visa interview on 25th July 2011.

    Our visa invitation letter also states that we will be in Slovakia for the period starting from 7th September 2011 till 13th September 2011.

    We will suffer heavy losses on cancellation of the confirmed flight tickets and hotel bookings for 7th September 2011.

    In light of the above facts, I have requested the embassy (email sent on 11th August 2011 to email id: India to correct the dates on the issued visas and grant us visas from 7th September 2011 onwards.

    Can you please help in this matter?

    Our heartfelt thanks in advance…

    Hello Sir.
    My name is Vitor Campos and I am a Brazilian musician. I would like to move to Slovakia. I am now in Czech Republic for some business meeting and I really would like to apply for the visa to live in Slovakia and work as a self employed musician. I can go to Bratislava anytime to try to do this. Is it possible for a Brazilian citizen to get the visa to live and work in Slovakia while I am still in Europe(I will be in Europe until January 6)?
    Thank you very much.

    Sure, it is.

    Dear Admin:

    Can I apply Slovak Schengen visa in the Czech Embassy in Pakistan? My spouse is having residency permit in Slovakia and I wanted to visit him. If yes then what documents I need to present.

    Thank you

    I don’t know because some of the Czech embassies now help Slovakia and vice versa, but not sure which ones. Ask them… regarding the documents… same documents as stated above in the article.
