Foreign Ministry advises against all travel to Spain
Ljubljana, 14 March - The Slovenian Foreign Ministry has issued a travel alert on Saturday advising against all travel to Spain as the number of coronavirus cases continues to surge. All Slovenians in Spain have been advised to return home as soon as possible.
Since some airlines have already cut off links with individual European countries, the ministry said that Slovenian citizens currently in Spain should monitor the situation and contact airlines about their journey.
Spain today reported an increase of over 1,500 confirmed cases on Friday raising its total to 5,753 cases, the second-highest number in Europe after Italy.
The ministry again appealed on all Slovenians planning any travel abroad to reconsider their plans and postpone non-essential travel.
The ministry is advising in particular against travel to Italy, Iran, South Korea and China.
As US Donald Trump's travel ban from Europe to the United States has come into force, the Foreign Ministry advised all Slovenian citizens temporarily in the US to immediately return to Slovenia.
They are also being advised to follow the media and the local authorities' instructions, and to brace for potential delays.
