Initially, Austria will issue Schengen entry visas for travellers to Slovakia from its missions in Manila (the Philippines), Amman (Jordan) and Beirut (Lebanon). The treaty is based on the principle of unity in processing and issuing visas valid in all Schengen countries, according to TASR. The document contains a commitment by the contracting parties to protect private information.
