THE FINANCE Ministry is preparing new rules governing the payment of fees for state services, including the issuance of passports. Currently, the state receives Sk1.6 billion (€39 million) annually through the fees.
The amendment to the law will also address the long delays in processing applications, mainly for land-registry services, although it is not yet clear how.
If passed, this will be the 15th change in the law of fees since August 1995.
