An amendment to the Act on the Stay of Foreign Nationals, effective from 1 January 2019, is aimed at making the employment environment in Slovakia more attractive to professions in which there is a labour shortage.
It shortens the deadline for assessing applications for permits for seasonal employment and makes it easier to use temporary employment agencies – but only where there is a shortage of labour.
The list of the affected professions will be regularly updated and published on the Central Labour Office´s website to reflect market needs.
