      Work visa and residence permit in Slovakia

      based on private entrepreneurship (Živnost) registration
      (temporary residence permit for 2+2 years + permanent residence permit in Europe)

      The «živnostník» status allows the national of any country to do business, to work and render commercial services in other countries of the European Union!
