The number of applications for international protection filed in Slovenia has since been increasing, with 1,476 asylum claims made throughout 2017 and over 1,800 asylum applications filed in the first half of 2019 . The top five countries of origin of asylum seekers in the first six months of 2019 were Algeria, Morocco, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran.
