Market Entry Strategy
Last published date:

The best way to gain firsthand experience in Slovakia is to visit. Make the U.S. Commercial Service Bratislava office your first stop when considering entry to the Slovak market. You can get a feeling for what the market is like and how your product or service would be received; Bratislava is a 45-minute drive from Vienna airport.

After a visit to Slovakia, you may want to consider other regional markets that border Slovakia, including the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Austria, and Ukraine. Slovakia is an EU member and can serve as a gateway to the 27-member EU market.

The Euro became Slovakia’s nationwide currency on January 1, 2009, easing trade transactions among the 19 EU countries that use it. The most common and simple option for establishing an office in Slovakia is to create a limited liability company (LLC).
