Bilateral relations with Austria
Ministry of Foreign and European 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).
Current information on border crossings, measures at the border upon entry into Slovenia and the lists of countries can be found on the special page Border Crossing.
Austria recognised Slovenia as an independent state on 15 January 1992. On the same day, the two countries established diplomatic relations. In 1992, Slovenia established the Embassy in Vienna and the Consulate General in Celovec/Klagenfurt. Bilateral relations are marked by an intensive, friendly and expanded neighbourly partnership in many fields (internal affairs and police co-operation, consular affairs, regional initiatives, economic and military co-operation, development and humanitarian projects, multilateral forums), in which the two countries pursue external political objectives of common interest.
