The European Commission has proposed to gradually lift travel ban from July 1 for non-EU citizens coming from countries where the epidemiological situation is the same or better than that in the EU.
The detailed list will be announced later, Ylva Johansson, EU commissioner for home affairs, told reporters on June 11.
Earlier, the citizens of Austria, Croatia and Hungary were allowed to cross the border of Slovenia, and now that list has been expanded to 14 more countries, STA reports.
Citizens of Bulgaria, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Liechtenstein, Norway, Slovakia and Switzerland are allowed to enter Slovenia.
Turkey on June 2 approved a 90-day visa exemption for Palestinian citizens holding diplomatic passports.
The exemption applies to tourism, official visits and transit passage once every 180 days, according to the official gazette.
Earlier, they were exempted from visa for a period of 30 days.
Health Minister Kiril Ananiev issued an order banning the entry of third-country nationals into our country. This was reported by the Ministry of Health.

In the European Union (EU), 35% of non-EU citizens were living in overcrowded households in 2018, meaning they did not have the number of rooms appropriate to the size of the household. By contrast, this rate was 17% for nationals and 20% for foreign EU citizens (i.e. EU citizens residing in another EU country), Eurostat reported.
