Slovenian national minorities in the neighbouring countries
Ministry of Foreign Affairs Travel Advice: COVID-19
As the probability of infection with COVID-19 remains present, Slovenian citizens wishing to travel abroad are advised to follow the news on the spread of the virus, especially on the planned route, to check the conditions of entry into the country of destination, and to comply with local rules. Slovenian citizens returning from abroad are advised to follow the recommendations of the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ).
The autochthonous Slovenian national community in the neighbouring countries is closely linked with the Republic of Slovenia, which is its homeland and its protector country. The links are particularly strong in the fields of culture, schooling and education, economics, and politics. Slovenia actively supports and promotes the interests and rights of the Slovenian national minorities in the neighbouring countries and encourages their integration in the social and political life of their nation of origin.
