This means an increase year-on-year by nearly 7,400, the SITA newswire wrote.

Workers from Romania make up the largest group of 6,900; their number grew 1,200 in annualised terms. Czechs placed second – with 3,700, an increase of 791 against last year – followed by Hungarians (3,200, with an increase from 2015)

Figures show that up until June, one in every three foreigners in Slovakia worked in Bratislava, which means more than 9,600 were working in the five districts of the capital. Bratislava is followed by the Trnava district, which registered more than 3,300 employed foreigners by end of June, the SITA newswire wrote on July 24. The Labour office in Čadca has more than 1,100 working foreigners; while in the Gelnica district, only three foreigners were recorded working.
