Croatia is in Central and Southeast Europe, on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. It borders Hungary to the northeast, Serbia to the east, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro to the southeast, and Slovenia to the northwest. Like many other countries, Croatia has also instituted certain covid-19 entry and travel restrictions to inhibit a new wave of the deadly coronavirus.
Croatia COVID restrictions
Foreigners and tourists who may want to visit Croatia must take into consideration the following entry protocols by Authorities in Croatia and reported on the official government covid-19 website, www.koronavirus.hr;
- Passengers coming directly from the countries and/or regions of the European Union, i.e. countries and/or regions of the Schengen Area and Schengen associated countries, and who are currently in the so-called green list of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, regardless of their citizenship, will be allowed entry into the Republic of Croatia under the same conditions as before the onset of the COVID-19 disease if they show no signs of disease and they have not been in close contact with an infected person.
All other passengers who come to the Republic of Croatia from EU / EEA member states/regions, and which are currently not on the so-called green list of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, must present one of the following documents:
- negative PCR test or rapid antigen test – RAT* on SARS-CoV-2, where the RAT test must be listed in the Common list of rapid antigen tests recognized by the Member States of the European Union, published by the European Commission. If the RAT test findings were made abroad, the manufacturer and/or the commercial name of the test must be visible and the test must be issued by a health institution/laboratory and signed/confirmed by a doctor.
If otherwise, it will not be accepted as credible for entering the Republic of Croatia. The results of the above tests must not be older than 48 hours (counting from the time of taking the swab to arrive at the border crossing point).
