Immigration: Slovakia

Comprehensive immigration profile on Slovakia for those considering a relocation.

By Immigration Specialist
September 8, 2011

As relocation experts, at Move One we understand how important it is to make the transition to your new home as seamless as possible. To that end, Move One profiles a country every month, providing an in-depth look at relocation, immigration, moving and pet transportation issues.

This month’s spotlight focuses on immigration to Slovakia.

Slovakia is an attractive country for foreign investment due to its low wages and tax rates. In 2004, a World Bank report listed Slovakia among the 20 easiest countries in the world for doing business. In 2009, the Euro currency was adopted and Slovakia is continuously amending its legislation to bring it in line with European Union standards.

The Slovak law on border control and stay of foreigners has been amended on July 20, 2011 to improve migration management by defining procedures for obtaining EU blue cards, and clearly defining rules on the penalties in case of immigration non-compliance. Further reforms are expected to reduce lengthy processing times and to simplify the immigration process currently in force for family members.

For a detailed and comprehensive overview of the full process regarding immigration to Slovakia, please visit our Slovakia immigration country profile.

Topics covered within include:

  1. Business Travel
    This section outlines the scopes of business activities, entry requirements and limitations, as well as various formalities required upon arrival to Slovakia for business.
  2. Work Purpose
    The second section explains typical procedures and time-lines in an interactive display. The work section also contains list of possible work permit exemptions, penalties in case of non-compliance and information important for accompanying family members.

  3. Vital Documents
    The third section introduces birth and marriage certificate procurement details and how such documents may be authenticated for use abroad.

Each section of the profile features extensive sample documents.

Our articles are for informational purposes only. If you are considering a move to Slovakia for either business or longer-term work, specialists at Move One can help set you and your company on the right track.
