The Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry has published the requirements foreigners living outside the Schengen zone will need to follow to apply for a Schengen Visa, which the country will begin issuing on January 1, 2008.

The required documents (not older than 90 days) are: an application form for a visa, a colour photograph, and a valid passport (valid at least three months longer than the date on which the visa expires). Applicants must also state the purpose of the visit and prove they have enough money to live on, and they must have a return ticket to leave the zone.

If traveling by car, the applicant must submit a driver's license, technical license for the car and have public liability insurance in case they cause an accident. The applicant's health insurance must be valid in all Schengen zone countries. A Schengen visa can be issued as an airport transit visa, transit visa, short-term visa and visa with a limited validity, and will cost €60 (approximately Sk2,000). TASR
