API and PNR passenger data

Like other EU member states, the Slovenian Police collect information on air passengers in order to prevent, detect, investigate and prosecute terrorist offences and other serious crimes. Focused only on persons posing a high risk to human safety, the system of processing passenger data ensures a high level of security for the remaining passengers, allowing them to continue to move freely and safely within the Schengen area.
