Employment of Foreign Nationals in Slovakia

If you want to work in Slovakia and you are not a European Union national, you have to meet different conditions depending on the type of residence, type of work you want to perform, length of stay and other factors.
 

In general a third country national may be employed in Slovakia if he/she:

  • is an EU Blue Card holder (more information you can find here),
  • was granted temporary residence for the purpose of employment on basis of the confirmation on the possibility to fill in a vacancy – so called single permit,
  • was granted work permit and temporary residence for the purpose of employment,
  • was granted work permit and temporary residence for the purpose of family reunion within the first 12 months from being granted the residence,
  • was granted work permit and temporary residence of a third country national with acknowledged long-term residence in another EU Member State within the first 12 months from being granted the residence, or
  • meets the conditions under which he/she does not need the confirmation on the possibility to fill in a vacancy nor the work permit to become employed.


If you need a work permit, confirmation on the possibility to fill in a vacancy or if you hold the EU Blue Card, you are only entitled to perform work within an employment relationship (contract of employment). In other cases, you may also be employed on basis of an agreement performed out of the employment relationship.

Information on the conditions required in specific cases is available in the individual articles of this section.
