Summary

There will be no change to the rights and status of EU nationals living in the UK, nor UK nationals living in the EU, while the UK remains in the EU.

There have been protests across Slovakia following the murder of an investigative journalist. While these have so far been peaceful, you should monitor local media coverage, avoid any demonstrations and follow the advice of the local authorities.

Make sure your passport is in a presentable state before you travel. The Slovak authorities can refuse entry if your passport is worn or damaged, or looks as if it’s been tampered with.

Most visits to Slovakia are trouble-free.

If you need to contact the emergency services in Slovakia call 112.

Although there’s no recent history of terrorism in Slovakia, attacks can’t be ruled out. See Terrorism

If you’re abroad and you need emergency help from the UK government, contact the nearest British embassy, consulate or high commission.

The Overseas Business Risk service offers information and advice for British companies operating overseas on how to manage political, economic, and business security-related risks.

Take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before you travel.
