Slovak Republic

In 2011, the Slovak Republic saw a substantial drop in both immigration (-25% compared to 2010) and emigration (-26% compared to 2010), according to national statistics. Inflows decreased to about 4 800 foreign nationals compared with 6 400 the previous year. Inflows are traditionally dominated by arrivals from nearby European countries such as the Czech Republic, Romania, Germany, Austria and Hungary. Outflows decreased to about 1 800 persons in 2011 compared with 2 500 in 2010. The gender composition of migration inflows is dominated by males, while outflows are dominated by females. This trend is more pronounced for migration flows from and to countries other than the Czech Republic, the main migration country. Although net migration figures have been positive over the past decade, they declined during the past few years, reaching up to 7 000 in 2008, almost 4 400 in 2009 and over 3 900 in 2010 and 2 900 in 2011.
