Our country has a low incidence of COVID-19. Out of 2254 total cases since the beginning of the pandemic, 2.140 people have fully recovered. Only 7 cases of COVID-19 remain active with 107 deaths recorded to this day, 15th of June.

Travel restrictions in Croatia

First of all, Croatia is open to tourists.

EU/EEA Member States have the freedom to enter with a valid reservation arranged in advance.

For citizens of Austria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovenia or Slovak Republic, border crossing is unrestricted. They do not need to provide any reason for entry to Croatia and do not need to have a prearranged accommodation. But, they need to comply with general and special recommendations of the Croatian Institute of Public Health.

In order to shorten the procedure on border crossings, please announce your visit by filling in the Enter Croatia online form.  

All other foreigners may enter the country for business reasons, other economic interests or urgent personal reasons, if they provide relevant proof. Please note that once you receive confirmation that you may enter Croatia, you are advised to fill in the Enter Croatia online form

Keep in mind that staying with a friend is not a valid reason for entry. If you are coming to Croatia from a country that hasn’t been granted unrestricted entry and you are not staying in an authorised tourist accommodation it seems that you will not be permitted entry. 

Visitors need to respect all required safety and hygiene measures, as well as social distancing.
