FOREIGN CORRESPONDENTS

With the entry into force of the Media Act, the Ministry of Culture undertook certain administrative tasks relating to the accreditation of foreign correspondence offices and correspondents in Slovenia.

 
The Ministry of Culture, based on the Media Act, has managed the accreditation of foreign correspondence offices and correspondents in Slovenia since 2001.

 
According to the Media Act, a foreign press agency or a foreign medium is a legal entity with headquarters abroad whose basic activity is to regularly collect and forward or disseminate informative content.

  
Under the present act, foreign correspondents are journalists, photojournalists, and radio, television and film recorders who, irrespective of their nationality, are full employees of a foreign publisher of a mass medium or a foreign press agency or who have concluded a contract with such a publisher or agency and intend to perform their activities in the Republic of Slovenia for at least three (3) months.
