The Slovak parliament has approved an amendment to the Act on the Residence of Foreigners, which is dealing with issues emerging in connection with the spread of the COVID-19 disease. 

Note: a crisis situation is to be understood as an extraordinary situation or a state of emergency declared in connection to the COVID-19 disease. 

The Act No. 404/2011 on Residence of Foreigners and Amendment and Supplementation of Certain Acts (hereinafter referred to as the “Act on Residence of Foreigners”) is the most important law regulating the residence of foreign nationals in the Slovak Republic.

When submitting an application in an administrative procedure, you will most likely be asked to pay a fee. Here, you can find a basic overview of fees chargeable in different situations.

An important obligation of foreigners entering the territory of the Slovak Republic is to report their place of residence in Slovakia to the Foreign Police Department competent according to the address of their accommodation. This obligation applies to foreigners who have already been granted residence in Slovakia (only on their first entry), as well as to foreigners who have a visa or for visa-free travel.
