Slovakia will soon temporarily reintroduce border controls on the Czech, Polish, Hungarian and Austrian borders.
Acting Interior Minister Roman Mikulec said on Wednesday morning that Slovakia will soon temporarily reintroduce border controls on the Czech, Polish, Hungarian and Austrian borders, following a government decision, Ma7 reports.
The decision will be in force from 24 May to 8 June.
During this period, temporary controls can be expected not only at border crossings but also at all airports in the country.
The move, which had already been approved by the government, was necessary to ensure the safety and security of participants at the upcoming international security conference Globsec in Bratislava.
“Important politicians and other public figures from Europe and other parts of the world will attend the conference. Our priority is to ensure that the appropriate security arrangements are in place. This is only a temporary arrangement,” said Mr Mikulec.
