How to set up a conference call to Slovakia

The current conflict between Russia and Ukraine means that Slovakia’s entry requirements could be likely to change with little warning. If you have business interests in eastern Europe, it might be best to shelve the travel plans and keep in touch via conference call.

Here’s all you need to set up an international conference call for up to 100 participants using nothing more than a landline or mobile.

What’s the best time to call Slovakia from the UK?

It takes almost two-and-a-half hours to get to Bratislava from London and there is just a one-hour time difference, so you can call in normal UK business hours with no need to worry about catching anyone out at an unsociable hour.

No, the UK participants can simply dial the UK dial-in number when they are in the UK, and our system will automatically match your participants by your PIN.

Where is Slovakia?

Having been formed following the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1993, Slovakia is one of the world’s youngest countries (it celebrated its 23rd birthday on January 1st  this year) but has come a long way in a short space of time and is now a eurozone  country with a population of over 5 million people.

It remains a close partner of the Czech Republic, as well as Poland and Hungary, as members of the Visegrad Group, set up to promote cooperation and European integration.

And after initially having a frosty relationship with the European Union (EU) and NATO, things eventually thawed out as the country underwent economic reform and it joined both organisations in 2004.

The country now has one of the fastest growth rates in the European Union and OECD – so if you’ve got business interests over there, you’ll want an easy and convenient way to keep in touch

A mountainous country in central Europe, Slovakia is completely landlocked and is bordered by Poland, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Hungary and Austria.

What is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice on traveling to Slovakia?

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine could disrupt travel plans in and around the Baltic states. The FCO advice currently states that no one should attempt travel between Ukraine and Slovakia. If you have arrived in Slovakia from Ukraine and are in need of assistance, you should call +421 2 59 98 2000 and select the option for “consular services for British nationals.

Thousands of tourists and business professionals travel from the UK to Slovakia  each year without any incident, which means the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has issued any specific travel advice.

There are some things you should be aware of before travelling to Slovakia, not least that you need to make sure your passport is in a presentable state – you could be refused entry into the country if your passport is worn or damaged, or looks as if it’s been tampered with.

There are no inherent risks in Slovakia, not even in the capital city of Bratislava, but you should always be as vigilant as you are in the UK, and be aware of overpricing in bars and restaurants, as well as fraudulent transactions being skimmed on your credit or debit card.

Other scams include taxi drivers pushing up fares, bogus speeding fines from police officers and ‘road pirates’ faking a breakdown to get your attention before robbing you when you pull over.
