All visitors to Slovakia require a passport or valid national identity card (for EU citizens). For many visitors, a visa is not required for stays up to 90 days. All foreigners entering the Slovak Republic must carry proof that they have medical insurance to cover payment of all costs for hospitalization and treatment in the Slovak Republic.

The passport must be valid for the duration of one's stay in Slovakia, and for 2 months after.

Visas can be obtained from whichever Slovak embassy is accredited to the visitor's country.

The Slovak Republic is a member of the EU and a full member of the Schengen Area. EU citizens have the right to move freely within and between other EU countries and have the right to stay in another EU country for a 6-month period providing they hold a valid passport or national identity card.
