The Act on Asylum of 20 June 2002 was last amended by 451/2008 Coll., which entered into force 1.12.2008. Nothing in the Act indicates the possibility of resettlement. The term 'resettlement' is used in the Asylum law in relation to displaced persons (de facto refugees) who have been granted temporary shelter in Slovakia under the framework of the Directive 2001/55/EC on temporary protection.
