Summary:  Let $\G$ be a countable discrete group. The invariant uniform Roe algebra of $\G$ is the \cast-subalgebra of its uniform Roe algebra consisting of $\G$-invariant elements. We show that $\G$ has the approximation property if and only if $\G$ is exact and the invariant uniform Roe algebra has a certain slice map property. This answers a question of J. Zacharias. We also show that characterisations of several properties of $\G$ in terms of its reduced group \cast-algebra also apply to its invariant uniform Roe algebra.

Keywords:  uniform Roe algebra, invariant translation approximation property, approximation property, operator approximation property
