The procedure applicable in your case depends on when you want to come to Slovakia. Therefore, please choose one of the following two options that applies to your situation, in order to understand what you should do.
If you are permanently returning to the UK or moving to another country, you must inform the Foreign Police and return your Residence Card. You need to do so by sending a written notice on termination of your residence by mail together with your Residence Card to the Foreign Police Department competent according to your place of residence in Slovakia. We recommend doing so after you return to the UK or move to your country of destination.
You should also inform your health insurance company that you are permanently leaving Slovakia.
Read the guidance on returning to the UK permanently and restrictions on returning to the UK related to COVID-19.
