The Slovakia–Ukraine border is an internationally established boundary between Slovakia and Ukraine. Both countries inherited it from their previous respective state organizations, Ukraine from the Soviet Union and Slovakia from Czechoslovakia.

The current border was established after World War II and stretches for 97 km (60 mi). After admission of Slovakia to the European Union the border security became the responsibility of the Union, as well.
