The ministry also plans to divide foreigners into three categories: applicants coming from countries with visa-free regime; applicants from non-EU countries who travel to Slovakia individually; and investors and big companies that are arranging the residence of their employees in Slovakia.

The third group may include companies like Kia and Jaguar Land Rover, SITA reported.
