People who entered Slovakia before the outbreak of the conflict

If you entered Slovakia on a visa waiver or have a permanent/temporary residence here, you don’t have to worry about overstaying your visa/permit and being here illegally. In response to the pandemic, Slovakia declared a crisis situation.

  • As a result, people whose residency permits expire during this state can stay in Slovakia up to two months after the crisis situation is revoked – for this purpose, the police department will issue a residence permit with a validity determined by a specific date upon request,
  • If your visa expires during a crisis situation, you can stay in Slovakia for up to 1 month from the withdrawal of the crisis situation.
  • Please get in touch with us, if you are not sure whether these provisions apply to you.
  • You can also apply for asylum in Slovakia to obtain asylum or subsidiary protection.
