The extension of uniform Schengen visa in the territory of the Slovak Republic is basically not possible.

EXCEPTIONS: in exceptional cases, the period of validity of your visa may be extended by maximum three months within one half-year. The application for a visa validity extension must be submitted at the competent Foreign Police Department.

In order to visit Slovakia, most foreign nationals apply for the Uniform Schengen visa. The Uniform Schengen visa allows its holder to enter the Schengen Area Member States for example for the purpose of visiting relatives and friends etc. It may be issued for one or more entries. The length of residence in the Schengen Area based on this type of visa may not exceed 90 days within any 180-days period. The Uniform Schengen visa cannot be used for employment or other similar profit-focused activity. We recommend  to calculate the period of stay in the territory of Schengen countries and to check the compliance with the 90/180 rule, by using a Visa calculator.
