MPs pass border relations treaty with Ukraine

Lawmakers on June 2 approved a Slovak-Ukrainian border treaty that will govern travel for people living within 50 kilometres of the border. Under the treaty, stays in Slovakia can last up to 30 consecutive days or no more than 90 days within a period of 180 days. Eligible residents will have to pay €20 (Sk620) for a license that will replace Slovak visas and will be valid for five years. The issuing of an estimated 15,000 licenses is expected to yield the state budget around Sk9.06 million (€300,000). Implementation of the plan will cost Sk9 million (€297,800) next year, including Sk6.13 million (€203,000) for salaries and payroll taxes of additional staff.
