Two new checkpoints open on border with Italy

While the majority of roads on the border between Slovenia and Italy remain blocked to contain the spread of coronavirus, a new entry point, Predel, opened on Tuesday. Citizens can cross the border using a special certificate. Another border check point will be set up at Rateče on Wednesday.

Both points, facilitating daily migrations between Italy and Slovenia, will be open on all days except Sundays and holidays, from 6am to 9am and from 3pm to 6pm. Outside those time slots, the roads will be blocked.

The authorities have thus responded to the calls for a partial reopening of the border to enable daily cross-border migrations in the north-west of Slovenia, which had been issued by local communities and mayors of both Bovec and Kranjska Gora.

So far, the closest check point between Italy and Slovenia has been Robič, situated more than 30 kilometres from Bovec.

Apart from daily migrants, other citizens in need of taking care of urgent business activities can also cross the border provided they have ID and the relevant permit, which is issued by a local authority.
