E-Revenue Stamp Payment System

  •  

The new arrangement for the payment of administrative and judicial fees through electronic revenue stamps brings radical change to the payment of these fees in Slovakia. The e-Revenue Stamp payment system is part of the computerization of public administration and belongs among the most modern payment systems in Europe. 

                                                

Options for payment of an administrative / judicial fee, which represents national budget revenue, through the e-Revenue Stamp payment system:

After the selection of the required service and payment by cash or credit card, the payee receives a Receipt of Payment of Administrative / Judicial Fee (e-Revenue Stamp) for the specific service. This e-Revenue Stamp can be used at every public authority office that provides the service within 30 days of the date of purchase.
