The UK Government has written to 365,000 UK Nationals living in Europe with advice on the actions they need to take to prepare for the end of the UK's transition period following Brexit on December 31. A total of 1,075 letters were issued to UK nationals in Slovakia.

The letters, sent to UK State Pensioners and benefit recipients, advise recipients on how to register for residency and healthcare, exchange driving licences and check the new passport validity rules online. It is one of the largest-ever mail outs by the UK Government to UK nationals living in the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
