Slovakia’s entrance into the Schengen zone will lead to changes in administration fees for visa applicants, Natália Hattalová of the Interior Ministry communications department told the TASR newswire.
Slovakia's laws on administration fees for submitting visa applications will have to be harmonised with European Union legislation, she said.
As of the day Slovakia joins the Schengen border-free zone, fees for the application forms for granting airport transit visas, transit visas, short-term visas and visas with limited territorial validity will cost €60, plus €1. Applicants will pay Sk5,000 (€147) to apply for a long-term visa, which is also valid as a short-term visa.
The EU sets the individual fees within the framework of all EU countries.
