Migration has become a major issue and a top policy priority in the global world. However, for Slovak society it is a relatively new phenomenon. Traditionally, Slovakia was a country of origin, which people were leaving to seek better living and working conditions abroad. However, since 1989 and especially in the past five years migration through and to Slovakia has been intensifying. In coming years a further rise of the migration inflow can be expected, which will not only be migrants heading for other countries of the European Union, but also those who will come to live a better life in Slovakia. Thanks to the fast economic growth Slovakia is becoming a more attractive country of destination for migrants. Therefore there is a growing need to strengthen measures towards the effective management of migration, including the prevention of illegal migration. It is important that the country reacts to the changing trends and creates a comprehensive and effective migration policy, which will take into account the legal, economic, social, cultural and demographic aspects of migration. Slovakia remains principally a country of origin with migrants leaving to use job or study opportunities, which appeared after the country joined the European Union. Thus there remains a need to provide comprehensive and objective information to potential migrants about the conditions of travelling, staying and working abroad as well as possible risks related with it.
