Foreigners falling under the Foreigners’ Police department in Žilina should prepare for some changes. The department moved to new premises, which are closer to bus and railway stations, and foreigners can access it on foot.

“The Foreigners’ Police have recorded a constant annual increase in applications for all kinds of stays in recent years,” said Interior Minister Denisa Saková, as quoted in the press release.
