EU citizens do not need visa or residence permit to enter or stay in Slovakia, but have some registration duties according to the law.

Foreign nationals (non‑EU) may be required to have valid visa to enter Slovakia and/or furthermore may need a residence permit if their stay lasts longer than 90 days (note: all stays in Slovakia within a period of 6 consecutive months counted together must not exceed 90 days). The foreign nationals are urged to contact the territorially competent Slovak embassy/consulate general in order to receive detailed and up-to-date information on visa requirements. Entry conditions always depend on the country of origin of the scholarship holder.

Both, EU and non‑EU nationals are advised also to check for more detailed information the “Entry and stay in Slovakia – guide to administrative duties” published at:, see the menu on the top of the page.
