75% increase in illegal border crossings in the first 5 months

Ljubljana-Slovenian police recorded 4,333 cross-border attempts during the first five months of the year. This is 75% higher than the same period last year when 2,466 attempts were recorded. According to police statistics, afghani accounts for almost a quarter of the intercepted people.

The number of illegal cross-border attempts by Afghan citizens has more than doubled to 1,036, and a significant increase in the number of citizens of India (13-276) and Cuba (0-224) has also been recorded.

Almost half of the recorded attempts are under the jurisdiction of the Koper Police Department, which has quadrupled its attempts since last year.

In the first five months of 2022, the number of intentions to submit international protection requests was a total of 3,798, four times the same period last year, mainly due to the increase in the number of refugees from Afghanistan. ..

The administrative unit processed 5,749 requests for temporary protection, almost all of which were submitted by the Ukrainian citizens.
