Employees who are not citizens of an EU member country need a work permit from Labour, Social Affairs and Family office and residence permit from the Foreign Police. All the Non-EU citizens who decided to work in Slovakia must apply for a temporary residence permit The temporary residence permit allows non-EU citizens to stay in Slovakia for a period of more than 90 days for business purposes. It is issued for one year and then it can be renewed. Documents required:

- Passport & 2 passport-style photographs.
- Typed application form in Slovak language.
- Document certifying reason for request.
- Criminal background check (Slovak and home country).
- MedicaI certificate stating applicant is free of contagious disease.
- Proof of funds (varies, check with Slovak Consulate for specifics).
- Proof of medical insurance.
- Proof of housing (signed lease agreement or ownership deed etc).
- A foreigner should apply for the work permit first and then for the residence permit.

Citizens of European Union have free, unrestricted entry to Slovakia and after Slovakia joined EU, it did not apply any transitional period, so EU citizens do not need any work permit.

Social Security in Slovakia

If an employee is subject to the Slovak social security system, both the employer and the employee must pay social security contributions. Slovak social security contributions consist of sickness, old-age, disability, unemployment, guarantee and accident insurance, and contributions to the reserve fund.

In general, every person performing an income-generating activity for which he or she is entitled to a regular monthly compensation (and also irregular for the purposes of pension insurance) subject to income tax is deemed to be an employee for Slovak social security purposes. Rental, capital or other income is not subject to sociaI insurance.

The combined rate for the employee's social and health insurance contribution is 13.4% of his or her assessment base, which is, in general, his or her monthly taxable employment income. The employer's contribution rate is 35.2% of the employee's assessment base.
