International Restrictions:

*From within the EU:

Croatia applies the commonly agreed EU approach to travel restrictions from EU Member States and Schengen Associated Countries.

Travel from countries or regions classified as "green"

Travellers - regardless of their citizenship - arriving from areas classified as "green" can enter Croatia without being subject to any isolation or test requirement.

For these travellers, testing and quarantine are not required also in case of transit through high-risk countries or regions.

Travel from countries or regions NOT classified as "green"

Travellers - regardless of their citizenship - arriving from areas NOT classified as "green" can enter Croatia without being subject to isolation or test requirement in the following cases:

  • Full vaccination

A vaccination certificate, proving that the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine (or single dose for Johnson & Johnson) was received more than 14 days before crossing the state border, must be presented;

  • Recovery from COVID-19 in the last 6 months

A Positive result to a COVID-19 test (PCR or rapid antigen test) performed in the previous 180 days and older than 11 days from the date of arrival at the border crossing point, or a certificate issued by a physician confirming that the holder has recovered from the SARS-CoV-2 virus infection, must be presented.
If a person has recovered from COVID-19 and has a medical certificate or a positive test, and has been vaccinated with at least one dose of vaccine after recovery, the exemption from testing and isolation is extended until 5 months after vaccination.

It is required that travellers show no signs of COVID-19 disease and that they have not been in close contact with an infected person.

All other travellers aged above 7 have to provide a negative COVID-19 test (PCR or rapid antigen test - RAT).
The RAT test, to be valid, must be listed in the common list of rapid antigen tests recognised by the Member States of the European Union). If the RAT test was 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. The results of the above tests must not be older than 48 hours (counting from the time of taking the swab to arriving at the border crossing point).

In lack of a valid COVID-19 test, travellers will have to immediately perform, upon arrival in Croatia, a PCR or rapid antigen test at their own expenses, with the obligation to stay in self-isolation until a negative test result. If testing cannot be performed, a 10-day quarantine is imposed.

Some categories of people are exempt from previously mentioned requirements.

Provisions for people applying for residency/work in Croatia

Persons who, following their application for residence / work in Croatia (including digital nomads), have received a positive decision of the competent authority, are obliged to present credible documentation upon entering Croatia to prove the reasons for their exemption to COVID-19 testing or isolation. During their stay in Croatia, they are obliged to follow the general and special recommendations and instructions of the Croatian Institute of Public Health.

Health cover for temporary stays *Transit:

As a general rule, passengers in transit in the EU+ area are exempt from temporary travel restrictions.

EU citizens entering the EU from a third country, as well as their family members, irrespective of their nationality, are exempt from the travel restrictions regardless of whether or not they are returning to their country of nationality or residence.

Passengers travelling from a non-EU country to another non-EU country may transit through the international transit area of airports located in the Schengen area. Rules regarding airport transit visa requirements continue to apply.

Additionally, for Croatia, the following rules apply:

Passengers can transit without restrictions but have the obligation to leave the Republic of Croatia within 12 hours from entry, which will be checked by the border police. Travel is limited to the main highways and stops are limited. You can consult a map that shows the allowed highways (only in Croatian).

Passengers allowed entry to Croatia, as well as Croatian citizens transiting via Neum will not be subject to any additional requirements and can freely travel to and from southern Croatia by car.

Passengers in transit do NOT need to fill out the form ENTERCROATIA.

In order to be allowed to enter Croatia, third country nationals are required to have a certificate of paid accommodation in a hotel, campsite, rented vessel or other form of tourist accommodation, or they must be owners of houses or vessels in Croatia.
