The departments will also be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 to 14:00. The change comes into force on September 3 and will be in place until further notice.

The announcement comes after several foreigners posted complaints on Facebook, pointing to long queues at the Foreigners’ Police department in Bratislava, problems with processing their agenda, and what they called "mafia lists".

Meanwhile, the Interior Ministry has started issuing new residence cards, containing improved security features. The holders of old cards will be able to continue using them until their validity expires.
