Reporting Residence and Other Important 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

The accommodation facility (hotel, hostel, etc.) is required to fulfil the reporting obligation on behalf of the foreigner staying in it.

A third-country national is also obliged to:

  • notify the Foreign Police about the termination of the purpose for which the residence permit was granted within three business days;
  • stay in the territory of the Slovak Republic for more than a half of the length of the granted temporary residence in a calendar year; this does not apply if a third-country national has mobility commitments in another Member State;
  • notify the Foreign Police in writing that they will stay for more than 180 days outside the territory of the Slovak Republic if they have permanent residence;
