Citizens from all the countries of territorial competences of the Slovak Embassy in Bangkok do require a valid Slovak visa when traveling to Slovakia for any purpose.
As of 21. December 2007 Slovakia became a full member of the Schengen Area, thus valid Schengen visa is fully recognised by Slovak Authorities to enter and stay in Slovakia from this date. Please contact the Embassy in Bangkok for information about visa requirements.
The Schengen area covers 26 countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lichtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland.
If you intend to visit more than one Schengen state, you should submit your application at the embassy or consulate of the Schengen state that will be your main destination.
If you intend to spend an equal length of time in several Schengen states, you should submit your application to the embassy or consulate of the Schengen state that you will arrive in first.
If the Slovak Republic is your main destination you have to apply for visa at the relevant Slovak Embassy or Consulate.
There are 3 types of visa that can be issued to applicants:
- Airport transit visa - A type of visa- is valid for transiting through the international transit areas of airports situated in the Schengen Areas
- Short-stay visa – C type of visa - entitles its holder to free movement throughout the Schengen Area for a maximum of 90 days in any 180-day period. The short-stay calculator can be used for calculating the period of allowed stay.
- National visa – D type of visa- is issued to nationals of certain non-EU countries who intend to stay longer than 90 days in Slovakia.
All applicants for Schengen visa will need to personally present themselves in order to have their biometric date registered. It will allow visa holders to be identified faster and this way identity theft can be countered. When the visa holder arrives at the external border, the border authorities have access to the VIS to verify his or her identity and the authenticity of the visa. These procedures improve security in the Schengen Area.
Certain categories of applicants are exempt from the requirement to give ¬ fingerprints, including:
- Children under the age of 12;
- Persons for whom ¬ fingerprinting is physically impossible;
- Heads of State and members of national governments, and members of their official delegations when invited for an official purpose.
A short-stay Schengen visa does not automatically entitle you to enter the Schengen Area. At border controls or during other checks you can be asked to provide relevant authorities with information concerning purpose of your visit, related documents, financial means etc. We advise you to have a copies of documents submitted at the Embassy or Consulate when you applied for visa.
Applicants have to make an appointment in order to submit their applications before their visit the Embassy and they have to apply for visa in person.

Harmonizing rules and procedures – Schengen visa C
The Schengen Borders Code provides EU States with a single set of common rules that govern external border checks on persons, entry requirements and duration of stays in the Schengen Area. By harmonizing these rules, the EU seeks to render them more efficient, whilst increasing their transparency. Similarly, through the Schengen Visa Code EU States have harmonized conditions and procedures for issuing short-stay visas (i.e. visas for stays that do not exceed three months).
A clearer definition of short stay of non-EU citizens in the Schengen area ("90 days in any 180 days period") is applicable from 18 October 2013. Since then a new method of calculation of short stays applies.Last Update Date: 22.9.2017 Create Date: 12.9.2006
