SLOVAK state offices might soon start accepting payments via credit and debit cards.

The Finance Ministry postponed the abolition of stamps (‘kolok’) as a way of paying for administrative procedures to July 1, 2014 in its draft amendment to the law on administrative fees, arguing that paying with stamps is the most frequent method of paying fees at public offices in Slovakia, the TASR newswire reported.

At the same time, the ministry admitted they are planning to replace the system of stamps with payments via credit or debit card. Some state offices should be equipped with devices that support the new means of payment in 2014, according to TASR.
