Under Article 60 of the Convention, the Slovak Republic reserves the jurisdiction of its authorities to take measures directed to the protection of immovable property of a child situated on the territory of the Slovak Republic as well as the right not to recognize any parental responsibility or measure in so far as it is incompatible with any measure taken by its authorities in relation to such property.

The Slovak Republic declares that requests under Article 34, paragraph 1, of the Convention shall be communicated to its authorities only through its Central Authority.

Declaration made by the Slovak Republic on 11 May 2004:
"Articles 23, 26 and 52 of the Convention allow Contracting Parties a degree of flexibility in order to apply a simple and rapid regime for the recognition and enforcement of judgments. The Community rules provide for a system of recognition and enforcement which is at least as favourable as the rules laid down in the Convention. Accordingly, a judgment given in a Court of a Member State of the European Union, in respect of a matter relating to the Convention, shall be recognised and enforced in the Slovak Republic by application of the relevant internal rules of Community law."

Declaration made by the Slovak Republic on 6 May 2014:
"The Slovak Republic declares persuant to Article 52 paragraph 1 that the rules on applicable law of this Convention shall take precedence over the rules of the Treaty between the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic and the Polish People's Republic on Legal Aid and on Legal Relations in Civil, Family, Labour and Criminal Matters, signed at Warsaw on 21 December 1987."
