Slovenia re-introducing full Schengen regime


The police are allowing entry to Slovenia only to foreigners with valid travel documents, persons who express the wish to ask for international protection in the country and individuals in need of humanitarian care.

The regime has been introduced after the tentative agreement was reached at the summit under which Turkey will accept all illegal migrants from Greece and for each Syrian sent back the EU would resettle a Syrian refugee directly from Turkey.

EU member states also sent out a clear message that the Balkan migration route was now closed for all illegal migrants, and backed a plan for the reinstatement of the Schengen system.

Prime Minister Miro Cerar explained on Tuesday that the rules had been reintroduced in order to prevent putting borders within the Schengen zone, while he could not tell when the wire fence on parts of the border with Croatia would be removed.
