Bulgaria: Slovenia: Crossing the Border with the Neighbouring Countries @Wikimedia Commons

Slovenia reintroduced temporary control on the internal Schengen border with Croatia and Hungary on 21 October 2023 as a temporary short-term measure.

Border control was reintroduced due to the increased terrorist threat in order to ensure high level of security for all the residents. Border checks were reintroduced on the grounds of Article 28 of the Schengen code and will remain in force until 30 October 2023.

Slovenian national authorities have been noting a growing scale of organised crime in the Western Balkans. Similarly, Slovenian law enforcement authorities have been closely following potential threats and the security situation in Slovenia and the region, along with the factors that could cause an increase in radicalisation of individuals and violent extremism.
