The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) office in Slovakia provides practical advice to UK nationals who need additional support with their residency applications, including how to exchange their residence card, to guiding them through their online appointment booking with the Foreigners' Police.

“The IOM provides vital support to UK nationals in Slovakia who need additional support with their residency application or to exchange their EU Residence Card,” said Nigel Baker, British Ambassador to Slovakia. “I urge all UK nationals living in Slovakia to take action as soon as possible before the June 30 deadline, in order to be able to evidence their rights under the Withdrawal Agreement.”
