Free Advice and Services for Foreigners

From 1 September 2017, the Act on Residence of Foreigners is changed again and affects the students

The amendment of the Act on Residence of Foreigners comes into effect on 1 September 2017. It won´t be possible anymore for a student of Slovak language at a language course to apply for the residence permit for the purpose of study. Those foreigners who want to study Slovak language may apply for a National visa or for temporary residence for another purpose. National visa can be issued for the period of duration of a language course, maximum until 31 July of the respective year.

The amendment also affects the high school students. The temporary residence for the purpose of study can be acquired only by a student, who is younger than 20 years, on the day of submitting the application.
