The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has extended the services of its IOM Migration Information Centre (MIC) to all regions of Slovakia. In addition to Bratislava and Košice, migrants can get comprehensive services and useful information for life in Slovakia in Banská Bystrica, Nitra, Prešov, Trenčín, Trnava and Žilina.

MIC is IOM's key programme in the field of migrant integration in Slovakia, which since 2006 has accompanied citizens of other countries arriving in Slovakia from the first step in their new country. Thanks to MIC, they can benefit from free legal, social and employment counselling, learn the Slovak language, receive support in getting an education, improving their qualifications or retraining, get to know different aspects of life in Slovakia and benefit from support in their communities in Slovakia.
