Visa representation agreements

REPRESENTATION IN ISSUING SCHENGEN VISAS

 

In accordance with the Visa Code, Member States should be present or represented in all third countries whose nationals are subject to a visa requirement for visa purposes. Member States, which do not have their own consulate in the third country, should seek to conclude representation arrangements in order to avoid a disproportionate effort on the part of visa applicants to have access to consulates.

 

Therefore, the Slovak Republic has concluded visa representation agreements with other Member States, enabling the third country nationals to apply for Schengen visas in their home country, without having to visit the territorially competent Slovak diplomatic mission.  The existing representation agreements do not apply to the national visas. An application for a Slovak national visa can be submitted only at the competent diplomatic mission of the Slovak Republic. 

 

The Schengen visa application shall be submitted in accordance with to the instructions provided by the consulate of the representing State, which also makes the decisions on the issuance of the Schengen visa.
