The duty for legal entities to have an electronic mailbox activated becomes effective on 1 July 2017.
An electronic mailbox allows the legal entity to communicate with public authorities electronically, especially to receive official documents.
To access the mailbox, the statutory representative or other authorized individual (a Slovak citizen) needs a personal identification card with an electronic chip and a personal security code. A foreigner will need a residence permit card with an electronic chip.
Electronic mailboxes are established by the Government Office of the Slovak Republic and are located at the Central Government Portal on the www.slovensko.sk website. They are free of charge.
