Please read the information on this site carefully. The Visa Application Centre provides you with general information on how to apply for a Schengen visa to Slovakia. The guidelines are there to help you prepare your documents as accurately as possible. This will reduce the risk of your application being incomplete or taking a longer time to being processed.

The visa category chosen by the applicant must be based on the purpose of travel to Slovakia and the decision must be made by the applicant him/herself – Visa Application Centre staff will not be able to assist you in making this decision.

Family members of an EU/EEA or Swiss citizens who are exercising their right to free movement in Slovakia have the right to have their visa application processed in accordance with EU regulations.

In accordance with the Visa Code, every visa applicant reserves the right to submit his or her visa application directly at the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in Beijing or the Consulate General of the Slovak Republic in Shanghai for his/her place of residence.
