Permanent Residence

A permanent residence permit entails foreign nationals to long-term residence in Slovakia as well as journeys abroad and back. It is a more stable type of residence, which is granted to foreign nationals for a longer period than temporary residence. Foreign nationals with permanent residence permit enjoy the same rights and duties as all citizens of the Slovak republic in most areas of life (e.g. employment, health care, social affairs, and public life on the regional level).

The Police Authority grants the permanent residence permit for five years to a foreign national:
  • who is a spouse of a Slovak citizen with permanent residence permit in the territory of the Slovak Republic or who is a direct dependent relative of a Slovak citizen with permanent residence permit in the Slovak Republic;
  • who is a single child younger than 18 years and has been placed under the custody of a foreign national who is a spouse of a Slovak citizen with the permanent residence permit in the Slovak Republic;
  • who is a single child younger than 18 years of a foreigner with permanent residence permit for five years or a child younger than 18 years that has been placed under the custody of a foreign national with permanent residence permit for five years;
  • who is a dependent child older than 18 years, not able to take care of himself/herself due to a long-term unfavourable health condition of a foreign national with permanent residence permit;
  • or, in exceptional cases, if it is in the interest of the Slovak Republic.

The Police Authority may grant a permanent residence for an unlimited time period to a foreign national, who:

  • has held the permanent residence for five years at least for a period of 4 years;
  • is a child younger than 18 years of age of a foreigner with permanent residence for an unlimited time period.

The Police Department will grant a long-term residence to a foreign national:
  • who has legally resided in Slovakia for an uninterrupted period of at least 5 years directly prior to the submission of the application;
  • whose long-term residence expired or was cancelled due to legally stipulated reasons;
  • who has had a 5-year legal uninterrupted residence in the territory of an EU Member State as a Blue Card holder and has resided in Slovakia as a Blue Card holder for at least 2 years  prior to the submission of the application.
