FOREIGNERS from countries outside the European Union can seek free legal assistance with the non-governmental Human Rights League as of July 1.

The Human Rights League will be providing legal assistance until June 30 of next year. It has already been providing free legal assistance within the project Centre for Residency and Citizenship for five years. The project is financially supported by the European Union from the European Fund for the Integration of Third-country Nationals within the framework of the programme Solidarity in Management of Migration Flows.

Experts from the Human Rights League provide assistance to foreigners, in particular, on issues of residency and obtaining citizenship. The service also includes anonymous online counselling through the League’s website, hrl.sk.

The objective of the project of legal advice on residency, citizenship and unaccompanied minors is to provide effective and comprehensive legal assistance and advice to migrants residing legally in Slovakia. Specifically, the project is focused on care for unaccompanied minors and to finding a lasting solution for their situation.
