Between 2015 and 2016, during the height of the European refugee crisis, more than half a million migrants and refugees crossed through Slovenia in transit to other destinations in Europe. As border controls across the region and the European Union have tightened, more have decided to stay and seek asylum in the country. In 2017, 1,476 people have applied for Asylum in Slovenia.
