Permanent Residence

What is permanent residence?

A permanent residence authorizes a foreign national to long-term residence in Slovakia and to travel abroad and back to Slovakia. It is a more stable type of residence, which is granted to foreign nationals for a longer period than temporary residence. Foreign nationals with permanent residence enjoy the same rights and duties as all citizens of the Slovak republic in most areas of life (e.g. employment, health care, social affairs, and public life on the regional level).
