The parliamentary finance committee has approved an amendment to the law on budgetary rules for the state administration which would significantly change the way Slovak expatriates may seek financial subsidies, the TASR newswire reported.

The amendment was prepared by the state-run Office for Slovaks Living Abroad (ÚSŽZ) cooperating with Anton Marcinčin, a MP for the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH).

If the new legislation is passed by parliament, expats will no longer have to visit Slovakia and ask several state authorities, including the social insurer Sociálna poisťovňa and health insurers, for the documents needed to apply for grants. According to the new rules, applicants would be allowed to send statutory declarations by mail, TASR reported.
