What is the change? Slovakia is experiencing significant delays in single-permit application processing.
What does the change mean? Non-EU nationals should anticipate that processing of single-permit applications will be delayed by one to two months and should adjust their business schedules accordingly.
Background: The delays are caused by an influx of applications and reduced staffing at the Labor Market Office in Bratislava. To process and approve single-permit applications, the Foreign Police must receive a statement confirming completion and approval of labor market testing. Ongoing delays in issuing these statements continue to lengthen processing times.
Analysis & Comments: Applicants should anticipate that processing will take significantly longer than normal and adjust timelines and start dates if necessary. Employers and non-EU nationals should also note that ongoing delays are applicable to work permit renewal requests in which labor market testing is required. Employers with questions about specific applications may contact the Labor Market Office with questions.
