Reporting Residence and Other Important Changes

Foreign nationals are required to report the place of their residence in Slovakia at the Foreign Police Department according to their place of residence. It is a special obligation not connected to residence, and generally needs to be fulfilled directly after arrival to Slovakia.

Reporting residence and important changes / Obligations

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. EU citizens or their family members are obliged to report their stay within 10 business days, third country nationals - within 3 business days from the date of entry into the territory of the Slovak Republic by completing the official form on reporting the stay - “Notice of the Stay".

The accommodation facility (hotel, hostel, etc.) is required to fulfil the reporting obligation for the foreigner who has accommodation there.
