Slovenia First to Be Connected to SIS

"Slovenia is the first among the nine candidates for entering the Schengen passport-free zone to have established a full link to the central Schengen Information System (SIS), Interior Minister Dragut in Mate said on Friday, 20 July in Bratislava.

Slovenia will be followed by Hungary and Estonia in establishing the full link. 'This means that the system is working,' Mate said.

Mate, attending a meeting of the candidate countries, added that the country's preparations for joining the zone are proceeding according to plan, as the draft report on the additional evaluation of the air border shows that the Ljubljana airport complies with Schengen standards.

Slovenia's main airport underwent the evaluation in early July after the airport failed the check last June."
