  • Croatia Third-country (Non-EU) nationals are not allowed to enter Croatia, except for: health workers, people working across the border, people working in transport of goods, diplomats and other staff, passengers in transit, people coming to Croatia for tourism, other business reasons or educational purposes and people who come to Croatia for other immediate reasons (including owning property in Croatia). 

    Passengers in transit need to leave Croatia within 12 hours, and then do not need to self-isolate. 

    Passengers arriving to Croatia for immediate personal reasons are now obliged to go into self-isolation for 14 days after entering Croatia. The self-isolation can be reduced to 7 days, if the person undergoes PCR testing (they have to pay for it) and shows a negative test a week after they’ve entered Croatia. 

    Passengers arriving in Croatia for tourism, other business or education are allowed to enter Croatia, but either need to show a negative PCR test, not older than 48 hours, or need to self-isolate for 14 days. Even if they’re not given the formal measure of self-isolation, passengers from the third countries are instructed to stay put, leave their accommodation as little as possible, wear masks and avoid public transportation. 

    UPDATE: We received some additional information from MUP in answer to some of our questions. The new restrictions do not apply to EU/EEA/UK. The EU safe list of 15 is NOT included in the exemption (ie they need test/isolation). Tourist arrivals are an exception, so they’re allowed to enter Croatia. If the tourists have proof of a negative PCR test not older than 48 hours, they’re not put in self-isolation, but they’re not allowed to leave their accommodation and should limit their contacts to the necessary ones. There are no changes to the recommendations regarding the funerals. Regarding weddings, only parents, siblings, and best man/maid of honor are allowed, but they should also have proof of a negative PCR test. 
    Hospital treatments for third-country nationals are allowed only if urgent and already planned (we will ask for more clarification on this) and with a negative test.
