Jobs

Slovakia’s employment market is relatively small and the unemployment rate belongs to the higher ones in European Union. And still, Slovakia can offer a lot of interesting job opportunities for foreigners.


Work Permit for Slovakia

The work permit is granted for a maximum period of 2 years. For seasonal work it is maximum of 6 months – there has to be a break between two jobs of at least 6 months.

The work permit is not transferable. This means that it can only be granted for a job with a particular employer and that is also binding as regards the type of work and place of work. If you want to change employers, you must submit a new application.

The work permit is granted by the Office of Labour, Social Affairs and Family, with a local competence in the future place of work. The statutory deadline for consideration of application for employment is 30 days.

An application for work permit must be submitted to the competent Labour Office. Application form for a work permit can be downloaded here (PDF).

An application for work permit is always accompanied with an evidence of level of education. Labour Office does not require a medical certificate. But if it is a profession where such evidence is required by law, ask for it from the future employer.

If a foreigner does not enter into employment, or if his employment ends before the expiry of the period specified in the permit, the employer is obliged to report that fact within 7 working days to the competent authority.

Work Permit may be extended – even repeatedly – but always for a maximum period of 2 years. Request for extension of employment permit shall be filed no later than 30 days before the expiry. A request for an extension of work permit is employer’s statement that it will continue to employ the foreigner. Condition for renewal of authorization to work is that the employee will work with the same employer.

If a foreigner wishes to engage with another employer, he/she must submit a new application for a work permit.

The authorization for employment in Slovakia expires, if:

  • The period for which it was granted expires.
  • The employment ends before the end of the period for which it was granted.
  • The residence permit expires.
  • Asylum seeker looses the right to work in Slovakia, because the asylum procedure ended.

Labour Office, which granted the work permit, can cancel the work permit, if:

  • The foreigner violates the generally binding legal regulations.
  • The foreigner does not enter into employment, for which he/she has been granted.

EU Nationalities

Citizens of European Union have free, unrestricted entry to Slovakia and after Slovakia joined EU, it did not apply any transitional period, so EU citizens do not need any work permit. The necessary administration that an employee (citizen of EU) needs, is carried out by the Slovak employer.

More specifically, the Slovak employer should:

  • Sign up the employee to the Labour, Social Affairs and Family office within 7 days.
  • Sign up to employee to the Social Insurance before the start of the work.
  • Sign up the employee to the Health Insurance system within 8 days.
  • Sign off the employee from all the offices after finishing the working process.

EU citizens are not required to have a work permit to be employed in Slovakia, however they are required to have a confirmation of permanent residency for tax purposes. Necessary confirmation can be obtained from the Slovak Foreign Police.

Documents required:

  • Passport
  • 2 passport-style photographs
  • Notarized lease agreement or proof of home-ownership

Non-EU Nationalities

Employee who is not a citizen of EU member country needs a work permit from Labour, Social Affairs and Family office and residence permit from the Foreign Police.

All the Non-EU citizens who decided to work, study, teach, or do businesses in Slovakia must apply for a temporary residence permit. It is possible to get the necessary documents on a Slovak Embassy or Consulate General abroad. The temporary residence permit allows non-EU citizens to stay in Slovakia for a period of more than 90 days for business and/or educational purposes. It is issued for one year and then it can be renewed.

Documents required:

  • Passport
  • 2 passport-style photographs
  • Typed application form in Slovak language
  • Document certifying reason for request (for business, employment, schooling etc.)
  • Criminal background check (Slovak and home country)
  • Medical certificate stating applicant is free of contagious disease
  • Proof of funds (varies, check with Slovak Consulate for specifics)
  • Proof of medical insurance
  • Proof of housing (signed lease agreement or ownership deed etc.)

A foreigner should apply for the work permit first and then for the residence permit.

    Dear Slovak Republic,

    I’ve been living in Slovakia for a little over a year now and I’ve continuously applied to well known companies / organisations that require people to speak English. As I am a native English speaker with the required experience for the jobs I’ve applied to I thought I would easily get a job. And continuously I get told your Slovak is only basic although you would be perfect for the position we can’t employ you.

    I also tried to register with Manpower and they weren’t helpful at all.

    Please can you advise me of a company or agency who will employ me, even with a basic active knowledge of the Slovak language?
    I hope you can help.
    Thank you

    Slovak-Republic.org replies:

    Hi Endžaj, have you tried all of the above mentionned agencies? These are the biggest and most trusted, if they can’t help you, there is only a little chance that anyone can help you.

    Hi, i am Gunay from Istanbul-TURKEY. I was in Kosice and Nitra this year. I got a friend in Kosice, and in my plan i want to live in Slovak.I work in HSBC TURKEY, and if possible i want to work in Slovak for 2-3-4 years till my girl’s school finish. But it looks little hard to find a good job in Slovak by internet, there is a huge unemployed rate. What do you think? I lost my hopes too much about a good job in Slovak, i have master degree about economy here and good english, but it is not too much used Englısh in slovak. what do you think, any hope, any good offer from you to me for search ? Dakujem..

    [Reply]

    Slovak-Republic.org replies:

    Dear Gunay,

    it is really not easy at the moment. Try to contact the international companies where is a bigger possibility that they dont need you to speak Slovak. Second advice is to contact the personal agencies, maybe they can help you. Keep sending your CVs, somethimes it just needs time. Good luck!

    2. Yes.
    3. You might be asked to show a bank account statement or any other proof that you can take care about yourself.
    4. Yes.
    5. No, because the permanent residence is asked for a particular address, so it can’t be given when you don’t know the address.

    Hey, I got a job in Slovakia. I’m a US citizen. Is it true that I can get my work permit there as long as I have my FBI clearance and medical report? I can then get the other things I need there and apply to the police station? Also, do you get the work permit first and then the residency? How long does it take to get a work permit? I’m supposed to start at the end of Aug.
    Thanks so much!

    Slovak-Republic.org replies:

    Dear Yvonnne, you should apply at the embassy in Washington, before you come to Slovakia! Contacts: http://www.slovak-republic.org/visa-embassies/of-slovakia/#usa
    Yes, you get the work permit first and then the residency, based on the work permit. According to the law, they have 30 days to notify you, but usually it’s faster.

    1. There is no Slovak embassy in Manila, you should contact the embassy in Indonesia: http://www.slovak-republic.org/visa-embassies/of-slovakia/#indonesia About the visa conditions read here: http://www.slovak-republic.org/visa-embassies/

    2. Yes, if you find a job from Philippines, the visa would be much easier to obtain.

    3. If none of you is Slovak, you can’t marry in Slovakia.

    I’m interested in getting residence permits through company formation in Slovakia, just like neighbouring Czech Republic which allows Sro limited liability company formation with just 200000 crown. I know that the min. is the same in Slovakia, but is the residence permit process similarly easy? Please guide me where to start and whom to contact as I have a lot of people who would jump at this opportunity.

    Yes, the Slovak residence permit process is very similar to the Czech. Start here: http://www.slovak-republic.org/residence/

    Work permit is based on the job you already have gotten. So you need to find a job first, then you can get the work permit.

    I am a citizen of the Philippines and have a job offer in Slovakia. Do I have to go to Slovakia to apply for a work permit in person or can I mail the application materials from outside Slovakia? Can I apply for a temporary residence permit or national visa for employment without a work permit?

    Slovak-Republic.org replies:

    You can apply at the embassy of Slovakia. You have to have the work permit first, then the residence permit.

    Dear Sir / Madam,

    I am foreigner a non EU citizen, I live currently in Slovakia. I have a work permit linked to one company, and I have a stay permit for 2 years. My field is Management. I joined my current employer on 1st of June, and I just got a better job offer with a new employer. I understood that I have to apply for a new work permit, but my questions are:

    How many times I can change job / employer?

    Is there a minimum time period I have to work with my current employer or I can resign and apply for the new work permit immediately?

    Is there a specific time period (break) that must be there after canceling my old work permit and signing a new one or I can resign & cancel my old work permit one day and start my new job with the new employer the next day?

    Many thanks for reading, appreciate your effort and waiting for your reply.

    Best Regards…

    Sam

    Slovak-Republic.org replies:

    Hi Sam, the law doesn’t say anything about how many times you can change the work permit. Every work permit is judged separately. But I guess if the officers see some shady several changes, it can be a reason to not give the work permit.

    No, there is no such minimum period, however it can take up to 30 days for the work permit decision.

    Just one more addition here on this site it is mentioned that citizenship can be gets by Birth:

    Who was born in the territory of Slovakia and whose parents are foreign nationals, but the child does not acquire citizenship of any of them.

    so a new born baby can get citizenship here?

    Sorry for asking many question.

    No, it’s for very rare cases when the child does not get the citizenship from its parents. If there is such law in their homecountry…

    Dear Representative of Slovak-Republic.org,

    Question(s):
    If I get a job and in the case that I’m granted a work permit for the working period, and in the case that I have an obstacle with my employer and I leave the work place to sort it out legally, if there was a dispute regarding work safety or any work related problem, who would I turn to, (could my employer contact Slovak authorities and notify them that I left my work place and that I should be deported)? How could such a dispute be dealt with in your opinion, without my status as a third country national (for example Armenian) being banned or black listed in applying for a visa or work/residence permit to the EU or Slovakia (alone?). Who, or what authority serves my legal interests in this case? Would I consult a private attorney, or do I consult the police, the Slovakian migration services, whom to consult if the employer can’t be consulted? Is there an insurance that can still protect my lost salary or do I have to cover all this by myself, are there unions or associations that operate on behalf of non-EU labor migrants’ interest-basis in Slovakia?
    I’m looking forward to the best advise you’re able to provide me with! Thank you in advance!

    Best regards,
    Mikael
