Based on an agreement between Hungarian Foreign Minister János Martonyi and his Slovak counterpart Mikuláš Dzurinda on September 27, Hungarian diplomatic missions in three countries started issuing Schengen visas on behalf of Slovakia from November 1.
The agreement concerns the Hungarian embassies in Tirana, Albania; Chisinau, Moldova; and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the SITA newswire wrote. It is the third such agreement that Slovakia's Foreign Ministry has concluded so far. An agreement with Austria was signed in 2009 and with Slovenia in the first half of October this year.
