Slovakia is one of the countries that has made a difference in Europe with its geography and geography, its mountains and churches, and its city architecture, which is surrounded by colorful spaces. If you want to have a place in the circle of tourists who visit Slovakia, you can read the detailed information about the Slovakian Schengen visa in this place. If you have a family or friend living in Slovakia and you want to visit this country, you can apply for a Slovakian Schengen visa. When you apply for a visa for a visa, you can read detailed information about the foreign visa and the general visa procedure.

Slovakia visa types

You can make your short trip to Slovakia, another of the Schengen countries, by getting a Slovakia Schengen visa. The reasons for applying for this visa can be tourism, visits to family or friends, workforce, medical examinations and examinations, short-term visits, exchange programs and many other non-permanent nuances. For example, if you want to receive a long-term license (bakalavr, magistr, doctorate, etc.) with a duration of more than 90 days in Slovakia and you want to work permanently in a community located here, you can also apply for a Slovakian national visa, provided that you have official and accepted qualifications from both tax and business programs.

To realize your short-term visit, you apply for the "visitor visa" type of Slovakian Schengen visa. Note that a short-term visitor visa does not give you the right to live in Slovakia permanently, the visa is issued to you for your short-term visit.

Slovakian Schengen Visa

Slovakian Schengen visa can be single-entry and multiple-entry like other Schengen visas. At the same time, you can also apply for long-term visas, i.e. for three months, six months, one year, two years or five years. After receiving a Slovakian Schengen visa, you can visit any Schengen country during your trip with this visa. However, in any case, we definitely recommend that you make your first entry into the Schengen area from the country where you received your visa, i.e. from Slovakia. Otherwise, if you try to enter the Schengen area with a Slovakian visa from another country (especially from Western European countries), if you do not mention it during your visa application, the border service of that country may turn you back and not allow you to enter the country, although in rare cases. This experience has been experienced in some cases and therefore we recommend you to avoid this risk.

If you apply for a Slovakian Schengen visa, you must indicate Slovakia as the country where you will stay the most during your travel period.

When applying for a Slovakian Schengen visitor visa, you must submit the following documents:

Original and copy of the first page of your foreign passport
Copies of your previous visas and entry-exit stamps, if applicable

Documents marked with "*" must be submitted to the embassy in English. If you have obtained the original of the document in Azerbaijani rather than in English, then each of these documents must be notarized and certified in English and submitted to the embassy.

After your documents have been accepted, in any case, during your visa procedure, you may receive a call from the embassy, and in this call you may be asked to submit new documents.

The letter of invitation sent to you must be an official document approved by the competent police authority in Slovakia and must contain the name, surname, residential address, contact details of the invited person, the length of stay, where he will stay, etc. should be reported in detail. Also, the signature of the inviter should be included in the invitation letter. If you indicate that you will be staying at the inviting person's house, in this case the embassy may ask you for additional documents related to the house (rental contract, utility bill documents).

The amount in your bank account is based on your travel dates, i.e. the length of your stay in Schengen, the price of your booked flight tickets and hotels, etc. varies depending. In general, it is recommended that you have at least 2,000-4,000 AZN in your bank account for a one-week trip (equivalent to Euro or US dollars). This amount should fully cover your travel plan. When calculating the amount, you can add the price of your ticket and hotel reservations to the average daily cost of 60-70 euros for each day you indicate that you will be staying in the Schengen area and expect a little higher than the figure you received.

If your expenses are covered by the person who invited you, this must be mentioned in the invitation letter. In this case, documents confirming the financial situation of that person (certificate from the workplace, bank account statement for the last 3-6 months, etc.) must be submitted.

If you are an entrepreneur, you can submit the documents that will replace the certificate from the workplace (a copy of the TIN, a certificate issued by the Ministry of Taxes about your turnover, an extract from the register of your company) to the embassy. If you are not working, studying or in any case providing another personal sponsor to cover the costs of your trip, in this case a copy of that person's identity card, proof of employment (if self-employed, documents listed above), bank account statement and statement (this bank account it can be in your name or in the name of the sponsor), if you have a family bond, a document confirming this (for example, if it is your parents, your own birth certificate, if it is a brother or sister, both of your birth certificates, etc.) and a paper about sponsorship to the embassy must be submitted. If the applicant is under 18 years of age, in this case, if he is traveling alone, a copy of the permission document to leave the country from both parents or, if he is traveling with one of his parents, the other parent must also be submitted during the visa application.

It should be noted that even if you submit documents such as TIN, certificate of turnover from the Ministry of Taxes, extract from the register of your company or sponsorship paper, permission paper, you must have each of these documents translated and approved by a notary in English.

Hotel and Airfare

When applying for a Slovakian visa, you must provide the embassy with vouchers (receipts) of the payments you made for your flight tickets and hotel reservations covering your total trip. That is, free bookings and reservations of tickets and hotels are not accepted at the time of document acceptance by the embassy. If you do not present the vouchers to the embassy at the time of application, your documents will be returned by the embassy. If you indicate that you will stay not only in Slovakia, but also in other Schengen countries, in this case, you must also submit to the embassy the vouchers of the payments you made for your hotel reservations in all the countries you indicated.

If you have booked your accommodation through Airbnb, you must present to the embassy the confirmation of your reservation sent to you by Airbnb, the payment check sent to you by Airbnb, and the bank statement from which you paid for the Airbnb reservation.

Visa Procedure

The application for Slovakian Schengen visa is made at the VFS Global visa application center of the Embassy of Latvia. The decision on the visa is made by the consul in the consular department of the Latvian embassy.

It is possible to schedule a visa appointment to submit documents by contacting the Slovak VFS Global visa application center at +994 12 436 67 78 on weekdays from 14:00 to 18:00.

An appointment is required to submit the documents. However, by paying an additional 144 AZN, it is possible to use the "Premium Lounge" service and submit extraordinary documents without making an appointment.

The visa application can be made no earlier than 6 months before the date of the trip. All applicants, except for fingerprint-free applicants, must be personally present when submitting documents. Applicants who are free of fingerprints do not need to be personally present if they give a notarized power of attorney to another person to present the documents.

Persons exempt from fingerprinting are divided into the following groups:

Persons who have received a Schengen visa in the last 5 years and have a fingerprint in the system
Children under 12 years old
Persons who are physically unable to provide fingerprints;
Holders of a diplomatic or special passport and accredited to a diplomatic or consular post in Belgium
Diplomatic or consular personnel and their family members (spouse and dependent children) who will be assigned to an international organization with a Slovak headquarters or representative office

Slovakia Schengen visa procedure usually takes 10-15 calendar days (excluding official non-working days related to holidays) from the date of application.

When submitting the documents, a visa fee of 35 euros and a service fee of the visa center of 53 AZN are paid. Fees are accepted in cash only. The visa fee is accepted in euros, and the service fee of the visa center is accepted in manats.

The possibility of obtaining a Slovakian Schengen visa

As with the visa application of any country, your chances of getting a visa in Slovakia depend on the status of your profile. Your workplace and position should be normal, your monthly income should be in the standard salary range (in experience, visas have been issued to people with a monthly income of 300-500 AZN, there have been many cases), you should show enough money in your bank account to cover your entire trip, the nuances that bind you to the country (having property in your name) , the presence of your family and children) and your travel history are factors that increase your chances of getting a Slovakian Schengen visa. In our experience, it has been seen many times that people who did not have a Schengen visa previously obtained a Slovakian Schengen visa. That is, applying for a Slovakian visa is a relatively good option for people with no travel history. Of course, having Schengen visas before is a nuance that increases your chances of getting a Slovakian Schengen visa in any case.

During the guest visa, the fact that you are closely related to the person who invited you and that you submit documents confirming this to the embassy, as well as the correctness and completeness of the documents you provide about yourself and the person who invited you, have a positive effect on your chances of getting a visa.
