By the end of this week Croatia and Slovenia are expected to sign an agreement that would simplify cross-border travel for the two countries' nationals, after their border was recently reopened, but with significant waiting times for those wishing to cross it.

Slovenian government spokesman Jelko Kacin said on Thursday that the two countries' police commanders had agreed that by the end of the week they would initial an agreement that would facilitate cross-border travel for Croatian and Slovenian nationals, that would cut waiting time.

Considering their similar epidemiological situations, the two countries have already opened their border for cross-border travel.

There have been no new cases of Covid-19 in Slovenia in the last 24 hours and one person has died. So far, 1,468 people have been infected and 105 have died, the government said.

The number of hospitalised patients has been on the decline, and currently 21 people are being treated in hospital, including three in intensive care units.

According to the Slovenian Health Ministry, there are only 20 active infections, which enables the further easing of Covid-19 restrictions.

Kacin said that Croatian border police would soon have an application to enable Slovenians who frequently travel to Croatia, after they register with the application for the first time and state their personal information, to be allowed across the border faster than now.

Slovenia plans to sign agreements on cross-border travel with other neighbouring countries as well, Kacin said, adding that the first country on that wish list was Austria.
