Type of verification and certification of the documents depend on the country where they were issued and existence of international agreement between Slovakia and this country on mutual recognition of documents on education.

Applicants need to get “Apostille” on the original document on education or on notary authorized copy of the document (please check with the authority giving apostille). The certificate must be in the official language of the country where it has been issued.

In case the country does not issue Apostille, the applicants must have the documents „superlegalized“. Superlegalization is done by the Ministry of Education, followed by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and finally by the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in that country or in the country which acts on its behalf.

Exceptions are applicants who have completed their secondary education in the following countries: Croatia, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Poland, Romania, Ukraine and Czech Republic. Applicants from these countries should provide only the notary authorized copy of the document.
