Slovakia - Employment
- Notarized lease agreement or proof of home-ownership
- 2 passport-style photographs
Foreigners from non-EU countries are required have both a residence permit and a work permit in order to be employed in the Slovak Republic for a period of more than one month. If employment will be less than one month, they are required to have a work permit and the residence permit requirement may be waived.
In order to obtain their residence permit, the non-EU foreigner must apply at a Slovak consular office abroad. However, the residence permit may not always be granted without an approved work permit, which must be applied for in Slovakia at the local Labor, Social Affairs and Family office. In addition, other necessary documents such as a Slovak-notarized residential lease agreement and Slovak-certified medical clearance mean that these foreigners will probably have to visit Slovakia first, gather the required paperwork, leave the country, and then apply for their residence permit abroad.
It is strongly advisable to get current information on the requirements for a residence and/or work permit from a Slovak consular office abroad prior to applying, as regulations can change frequently.
