FOREIGNERS

The new section of the Košice City website focuses on migrants living in Košice. It intends to serve as an online resource centre for newcomers. The multicultural City of Košice welcomes the thousands of visitors coming to Košice to see the sights, history, taste local cuisine, culture or sport. However, the statistics show that every year there are more and more foreigners settling down in Košice, who came here to work, study or due to the family or security reasons. They plan to stay in Košice for several years or for longer.   

Either you are foreign worker, entrepreneur, foreign student, foreigner participating in work-based training or in an exchange programme, whether you moved here for family or security reasons, after obtaining the residency you became part of Košice. Welcome to your new home!

Here you will find information, which will help you find your way around the city. You will learn about the Košice offices and authorities responsible for various legal procedures or organizations promoting the integration of migrants and cohabitation of all people living in the city. You will also get to know about multicultural history of Košice and what the life is like for its minorities and migrants nowadays.
