[Slovakia] Increase in meal allowances from August 2024 – proposal

On June 4, 2024, the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Family of the Slovak Republic published preliminary information on the proposal for a measure on the amounts of meal allowances.

In the preliminary information, the ministry confirms that the increase in prices reached a value of 5.3%, thus the new amounts of meal allowance will be in the amount stated below. Based on previous experience with the duration of the legislative process, it can be assumed that the new meal allowance amounts will be valid from August 1, 2024 or September 1, 2024.

The amounts of food allowance (so called “diets” or “per diem”) during a domestic business trip will be increased as follows:

  • €8.30 for the time zone of 5 to 12 hours,
  • €12.30 for the time zone over 12 hours to 18 hours,
  • €18.40 for a time zone over 18 hours.

In addition, the maximum possible contribution of the employer for provided food will be increased to €4.57 plus a contribution from the social fund.

The lowest possible value of a meal “ticket” (on e-card) will be €6.23.

The financial contribution for meals will also increase, with a minimum of €3.43 and a maximum of €4.57 plus a contribution from the social fund.

Please note that the meal allowances are still to be paid in advance!
