Luxembourg – Slovenia is already preparing a national plan for implementing the EU migration pact, explained the head of the Directorate for Migration at the Slovenian Ministry of the Interior Matej Torkar today. He expects the plan to be ready by the deadline in mid-December. Among the key challenges for Slovenia, he highlighted the need for a new legislative framework and the establishment of an information system.

In an interview with STA, Torkar welcomed the joint plan for implementing the recently adopted European Pact on Migration and Asylum, which the European Commission presented to the interior ministers of the member states at a meeting in Luxembourg, including the Slovenian minister Boštjan Poklukar.

“The European Commission defines in the joint plan all the necessary activities that both the member states and the Commission itself, together with its agencies, will have to carry out to ensure the implementation of the pact within the planned timeframe, which is in the next two years,” he said. The new legislation will start to be applied in the summer of 2026.

According to the general director of the Directorate for Migration, Slovenia will use the joint plan as a basis for preparing a national implementation plan, which is already being prepared.

He expects it to be completed by December 12, as stipulated by the legislation. Among the biggest challenges for Slovenia, he highlighted a complete overhaul of the legislative framework in the field of migration and the establishment of the Eurodac information system. (June 13)
