Schengen visa for entry to Slovakia

In order to visit Slovakia, most foreign nationals apply for a uniform Schengen visa. The uniform Schengen visa allows its holder to enter the Schengen Area Member States for example for the purpose of visiting relatives and friends etc. It may be issued for one or more entries. The length of residence in the Schengen Area based on this type of visa may not exceed 90 days within any 180-days period. The uniform Schengen visa cannot be used for employment or other similar profit-focused activity.
