SLOVAK MPs approved numerous changes to administrative fees on October 24, a move from which the cabinet foresees Sk1.6 billion (€38 million) extra in the country's state treasury, as well as faster processing of administrative matters by state bodies.
The new fees include a wide range of construction permits, entries, deletions, and changes to the business register, fees for foreigners for temporary or long-term stay applications, as well as entries and transfers in the country's real estate cadastral registry.
In the cadastral offices, for example, an express fee of Sk5,000 (€120) should secure citizens the registration of their property by the cadastral office within 15 days; otherwise, the money must be returned.
