  • Croatia Fully vaccinated travellers from the United Kingdom will no longer be obliged to present negative results of a Coronavirus test when planning to enter Croatia, as the latter’s government has decided to abolish such a requirement.

    Up to this point, Britons were required to undergo a pre-departure PCR test when planning to head to the Balkan country, and proof that they tested negative for the virus, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

    According to Croatian authorities, travellers from the UK will be required to fill in the passenger locator form and present proof of accommodation booking. In addition, they will also be required to present a valid vaccination document that shows that the second dose has been administered within a year and at least two weeks before their arrival.

    If Britons are not able to fulfil the requirements mentioned above, they will need to present proof that they have fully recovered from the virus and have taken the second dose of a vaccine within eight months of testing positive for the virus.

    They will also be allowed to present a valid proof of PCR or Antigen test showing that they have recovered from the disease.

    If travellers can’t show any of the proofs listed above, they will have to present a negative result of the COVID-19 PCR test, not older than 72 hours, when entering Croatia.

    However, children under age 12 are excluded from the COVID-19 test requirement if their guardians meet one of the conditions.

    At the same time, authorities in the UK have also applied new changes to their travel rules, including abolishing the amber list and using the red list instead for all countries that pose a risk in terms of COVID-19 infection. In addition, authorities in the UK have clarified that all travellers from the red list would be required to stay self-isolated for 11 days in a quarantined hotel costing a total of £2,285 per adult.

  • Croatia Croatia has become the 40th member of the United States Visa Waiver Programme today, on September 28.

    Starting from December 1 this year, Croatians will be able to travel to the US visa-free for up to 90 days at a time, with only a travel authorization, for purposes as tourism and business.

    The move has been announced by the US Homeland Security, which, in a press release, noted that the final decision has been taken by the Secretary of US Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas, in coordination with Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken.

    “Today’s designation of Croatia as a new participant in the Visa Waiver Program is an important recognition of our countries’ shared economic and security interests. I congratulate Croatia for becoming the 40th member of the VWP after having met strict requirements, and I look forward to our continued close cooperation on key priorities,” Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas is quoted to have said.

    The move has been welcomed by many, including Croatian President Andrej Plenković.

    “We welcome the decision DHS on the inclusion of Croatia in the Visa Waiver Program. Croatian citizens who will be able to travel to the United States without visas will benefit the most. By realizing this foreign policy priority, we will further strengthen ties,” the President wrote on his official Twitter account.

    Others have also welcomed the news, including here US ambassador to Croatia Mark Fleming, Croatian Minister of the Interior Davor Božinović and the US State Department.

    Croatia is the 24th European Union Member Country (not counting the United Kingdom, now a former EU member) to become part of the VWP. The remaining three countries that are still not part of the programme are Romania, Cyprus and Bulgaria.

    The four non-EU Schengen Associated countries – Switzerland, Norway, Lichtenstein, and Iceland – are also part of the VWP.

  • Croatia Croatian citizens could benefit from the US Visa Waiver Program (VWP) by the end of the US fiscal year and be able to travel to the US without visa requirement by the end of 2021; Croatia’s Ministry of the Interior has stressed.

    In this regard, Serena Hoy, Assistant Secretary for International Affairs at the US Department of Homeland Security, said for Hina news that Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas would make such a decision by the end of this month, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

    “And then, hopefully, if all goes well, we are optimistic that by the end of the year, Croatia should actually be able to start using the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) to travel to the United States,” Hoy pointed out.

    On September 16, Secretary of State for Political Affairs Frano Matušić held a meeting with a delegation of the United States Department of Homeland Security that Serena Hoy led, in which was also discussed the integration of Croatia to the Visa Waiver Program, Croatia’s Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs announced through a statement.

    During the meeting, both territories’ authorities agreed that accession of Croatia to theVWP would contribute to the improvement of mutual relations, particularly in the economy.

    Croatia’s Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic said that despite the COVID-19 situation, it is a very important moment in Croatia’s accession to the VWP.

    The Visa Waiver Program is a scheme managed by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in cooperation with the State Department that allows travellers from 39 countries to enter the US for tourism or business purposes for stays of up to 90 days without being obliged to obtain a visa upon their arrival.

    However, travellers are obliged to apply for the authorization known as Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA), so they can enter the US without a visa.

    At present, all countries part of the borderless area of Schengen are part of the US VWP. However, as for the European Union Member States, only Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia and Romania are not part of such a scheme.

    In order to become part of the VWP, countries are required to meet specific requirements; among them, Croatia should have a visa refusal rate below three per cent.

    • 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.

    International Restrictions:
    *From within the EU:

    Croatia applies the commonly agreed EU “Traffic Lights” approach to travel restrictions from/to the EU Member States and Schengen Associated Countries.

    Travellers (regardless of their citizenship) coming directly from EU Member States or Schengen Associated countries and regions that are currently classified as “green” will be allowed entry in Croatia with no restrictions.

    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.

     

    Is a coronavirus test required? 

    All travellers aged above 7 who, regardless of their citizenship, arrive from countries or regions that are NOT classified as “green”, are subject to the requirement for a pre-departure negative PCR test or rapid antigen test for SARS-CoV-2 listed on the list of Rapid Antigen Tests Mutually Recognized by the Member States of the European Union, published by the European Commission.

    The tests must be taken within 48 hours prior to arrival. In the case of a rapid antigen test and a stay in Croatia that is longer than 10 days, a second test must be conducted within 10 days of the last test.

    vaccination-benefitsPersons who can present a vaccination certificate proving the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine was received more than 14 days ago or, in the case of a vaccine received in a single dose, a certificate of receipt of a single dose received more than 14 days ago, are exempt from testing and isolation requirements.

    Persons who have recovered from COVID-19 within the past 180 days are exempt from the obligation to provide a negative test result and to self-isolate. In order to prove their recovery, passengers need to have a positive PCR or antigen test result, or a positive neutralisation test (NT) result obtained within the last 180 days and older than 11 days, or a certificate of recovery issued by a doctor.

    International Restrictions:
    *From within the EU:

    Croatia applies the commonly agreed EU “Traffic Lights” approach to travel restrictions from/to the EU Member States and Schengen Associated Countries.

    Travellers (regardless of their citizenship) coming directly from EU Member States or Schengen Associated countries and regions that are currently classified as “green” will be allowed entry in Croatia with no restrictions.

    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.

     

    Is a coronavirus test required? 

    All travellers who, regardless of their citizenship, arrive in Croatia from EU Member States or Schengen Associated countries and regions that are NOT classified as “green” must present a negative PCR test result for SARS-CoV-2 not older than 48 hours (from the time of taking the swab to the time of arrival at the border crossing point).

    Some categories of people are exempt.

In order to prove their recovery, passengers need to have a positive PCR test result or antigen test result, or a positive neutralisation test (NT) result obtained within the last three months and older than 14 days, or a certificate of recovery issued by a doctor.

     

    Is a quarantine required?

This also applies to EU/EEA citizens and their family members travelling to Croatia from a third country.

  • Croatia Latest News: Extension of border restrictions until 15 February to control the spread of Coronavirus (Gov.UK, 31.01.2021). From 1 January 2021 UK nationals travelling to Croatia from the UK, or any other non-EU/EEA country, will not be permitted to enter the country (Gov.uk, 31.12.2020).

    International Restrictions:
    *From within the EU:

    Croatia applies the commonly agreed EU “Traffic Lights” approach to travel restrictions from/to EU Member States and Schengen Associated Countries.

    Travellers (regardless of their citizenship) coming directly from EU Member States or Schengen Associated countries and regions that are currently classified as “green” will be allowed entry in Croatia with no restrictions.

    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.

     

    Is a coronavirus test required? 

    All travellers who, regardless of their citizenship, arrive in Croatia from EU Member States or Schengen Associated countries and regions that are NOT classified as “green” must present a negative PCR test result for SARS-CoV-2 not older than 48 hours (from the time of taking the swab to the time of arrival at the border crossing point).

    Some categories are exempted.

     

    Is a quarantine required? 

    As an alternative to a PCR test done prior to entry, travellers can have the PCR test performed upon their arrival in Croatia (at their own expenses), with the obligation to stay in quarantine until they receive a negative test result. This also applies to EU/EEA citizens and their family members travelling to Croatia from a third country.

    Travellers arriving from a country or region classified as “green”, who transit through high-risk countries or regions without any delay, will not be required to show a negative PCR test result for SARS-CoV-2, nor stay in quarantine, as long as they can prove this travelling through.

  • Croatia Latest News: Coronavirus travel restrictions extended until 31 January 2021 (Gov.UK, 11.01.2021). From 1 January 2021 UK nationals travelling to Croatia from the UK, or any other non-EU/EEA country, will not be permitted to enter the country. (Gov.uk, 31.12.2020).The Croatian government has banned travel between counties from December 23 through January 8 (OSAC, 21.12.2020).

    International Restrictions:
    *From within the EU:

    Croatia applies the commonly agreed EU “Traffic Lights” approach to travel restrictions from/to EU Member States and Schengen Associated Countries.

    Travellers (regardless of their citizenship) coming directly from EU Member States or Schengen Associated countries and regions that are currently classified as “green” will be allowed entry in Croatia with no restrictions.
    Travellers arriving from a country or region classified as “green”, who transit through high-risk countries or regions without any delay, will not be required to show a negative PCR test result for SARS-CoV-2, nor stay in quarantine, as long as they can prove this travelling through.

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

     

    Is a coronavirus test required? 

    All other travellers who, regardless of their citizenship, arrive in Croatia from EU Member States or Schengen Associated countries and regions that are not classified as “green” must present a negative PCR test result for SARS-CoV-2 that is not older than 48 hours (from the time of taking the swab to the time of arrival at the border crossing point).

    Some categories of persons are exempt from the PCR test obligation.

     

    Is a quarantine required? 

    As an alternative to presenting a PCR test result that is not older than 48 hours, travellers can have the PCR test performed upon arrival in Croatia (at their own expenses), with the obligation to stay in quarantine until they receive a negative test result. This also applies to EU/EEA citizens and their family members travelling to Croatia from a third country.

  • Croatia Latest News: Coronavirus travel restrictions extended until 31 January 2021 (Gov.UK, 11.01.2021). From 1 January 2021 UK nationals travelling to Croatia from the UK, or any other non-EU/EEA country, will not be permitted to enter the country. (Gov.uk, 31.12.2020).The Croatian government has banned travel between counties from December 23 through January 8 (OSAC, 21.12.2020).

    International Restrictions:
    *From within the EU:

    Croatia applies the commonly agreed EU ‘traffic lights’ approach to travel restrictions from/to EU Member States and Schengen Associated Countries.

    Travellers (regardless of their citizenship) coming directly from EU Member States or Schengen Associated countries and regions that are currently classified as “green”, will be allowed entry into the Republic of Croatia under the same conditions as before the onset of the COVID-19 disease. However, 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 who, regardless of their citizenship, come to the Republic of Croatia from EU Member States and Schengen Associated countries and regions, which are currently not on the green list, must present a negative PCR test result for SARS-CoV-2 that is not older than 48 hours (counting from the time of taking the swab to the time of arrival at the border crossing point). Alternatively, travellers have the PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 done immediately upon arrival in the Republic of Croatia (at their own expenses), with the obligation to stay in quarantine until they receive a negative test result. This also applies to EU/EEA citizens and their family members, that travel to the Republic of Croatia from a third country.

    Some categories of persons are exempt from the PCR test obligation.

    Travellers arriving from a country or region classified as “green”, who transit through high-risk countries or regions without any delay, will not be required to show a negative PCR test result for SARS-CoV-2, nor stay in quarantine, as long as they can prove this travelling through.

    Mandatory Travel Documentation

    All travellers are advised to fill out the form on the ENTERCROATIA website. Individual requests for border-crossing and requirements can be communicated in advance via e-mail to uzg.covid@mup.hr and will be addressed in the shortest possible timeframe.
