Slovakia’s Border and Foreign Police Offices Closed for Most of September

From September 11-30, 2023, Slovakia’s Border and Foreign Police offices will be closed and most immigration processing will be suspended.

The only applications which will be processed during this period are those for national visas in the national interest and for first-year students with appointments that have already been booked through the reservation system, and applications for temporary asylum.

Other foreign nationals with already-booked appointments can send a request to the relevant police authority for an exception to the suspension of processing.  Otherwise, applicants will have to reschedule their appointments through the online reservation system.

Stay periods which are due to expire during this period will be automatically extended until two months after this period.
