Health insurance

Except European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) we also recommend to have a private traveler’s insurance covering health care costs, repatriation and medical evacuation, personal property, and third-party liability for the duration of their exchange period at VŠM in Slovakia.

Participants outside EÚ must have medical and travel insurance for the whole mobility period, with at least the following items covered: Medical care,  Repatriation or medicalized transportation of ill or injured persons, Transport of Mortal Remains, Private Civil Liability Insurance. 


Visa

Since the Slovak Republic is a full member of the European Union, international students coming from EU countries do not need visa. Students from non-EU countries will need a visa for arranging a stay and entry to Slovak Republic. Information about visa policy in Slovak republic can be obtained from the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic: http://www.foreign.gov.sk/en/consular_info/visa

If you stay in Slovakia more than 90 days in one half-year you must apply for Temporary Residence Permit. The application is to be submitted in person at the Slovak Embassy or Consulate in your home country or at the Foreign Police Office after your arrival. Check with the Slovak Embassy or Consulate what documents are necessary for the application. In order to allow enough time for processing of Visa/Temporary Residence Permit application apply at least 3 months before your planned arrival to Slovakia.
