Employment of EU citizens

An EU citizen can be employed in the Slovak Republic without the need to obtain a work or other permit.

*EU citizen means a citizen of an EU Member State other than the Slovak Republic; a State that is a contracting party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA); and Switzerland

If an EU citizen registers his/her residence on the territory of the Slovak Republic on the basis of employment in Slovakia, he/she may attach to his/her application for registration of residence with the Aliens Police an employment contract, a promise from the employer or a confirmation of employment from the employer.
