Slovakia Emigration

Passports and travel

You should carry your residence card ( EU residency card or non- EU card), as well as your valid passport when you travel. If you have applied for a non- EU card but not yet received it, you can carry your certificate of application.

If you have not yet applied for a residence card, you should carry evidence that you are resident in Slovakia. This could include a tenancy agreement or a utility bill in your name, dating from 2020.

If you cannot show that you are resident in Slovakia, you may be asked additional questions at the border to enter the Schengen area, and your passport may be stamped on entry and exit. This will not affect your rights in Slovakia.

Passports

You must have at least 6 months left on an adult or child passport to travel to most countries in Europe (not including Ireland). This requirement does not apply if you are entering or transiting to Slovakia, and you are in scope of the Withdrawal Agreement.

If you renewed your current passport before the previous one expired, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. Any extra months on your passport over 10 years may not count towards the 6 months needed.

As a non-EEA national, different border checks will apply when travelling to other EU or Schengen area countries. You may have to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens when queueing. You may also need to show a return or onward ticket.

Entry requirements

You can travel to other Schengen area countries for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa for purposes such as tourism.

To stay longer, than 90 days in any 180-day period, to work or study, or for business travel, you must meet the entry requirements set out by the country you are travelling to. This could mean applying for a visa or work permit.

Periods of time authorised by a visa or permit will not count towards your the 90-day visa-free limit.
