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 department addresses the current challenges faced by the international community arising from globalisation, which requires new forms of international cooperation and strengthening of international governance mechanisms.
It is responsible for inter-ministerial coordination and formulation of positions on issues related to environmental protection, climate change, water diplomacy and circular economy. The department monitors the external dimension of migration and the fight against human trafficking.
The department also deals with scientific diplomacy, including artificial intelligence. It monitors international policies on these issues and, in cooperation with other competent ministries and departments, drafts proposals and positions for Slovenia’s responses on these issues.
