ZAGREB, 21 May 2021 – Two Croatian airports, Split and Zagreb, currently have organised passenger testing for COVID-19 and soon, according to portal Croatian Aviation, Dubrovnik, Pula and Zadar airports are working making testing for passengers available by the beginning of the summer season.
Zagreb, Split airports
In January 2021, Zagreb Airport initially enabled COVID-19 testing for all passengers for Amsterdam flights due to rules in place at the time in the Netherlands.
After the abolition of this obligation by the Netherlands government, Zagreb kept possibility of testing at the airport (PCR or rapid test).
Last month, Split Airport made COVID-19 testing available in the immediate vicinity of the passenger terminal, right next to the state road D409. Access to the location is possible on foot and by car.
Testing for SARS-CoV-2 is possible using two methods, depending on the needs of passengers or depending on the type of test required to travel to a particular country. The result of a quick test for SARS-CoV-2 virus antigen is ready within 30 minutes. The result in Croatian costs HRK 200.00, while the result in English is HRK 250.00.
The PCR test result is ready within 24 hours and costs HRK 400.00, while the result in English is HRK 450.00. Results for tests taken on Sunday will be delivered to the passenger within 36 hours. Passengers should bring an identity document with them.
Passengers are obliged to check the conditions and restrictions of travel to the country to which they travel, and the type of test they need.
Dubrovnik, Zadar, Pula airports
Dubrovnik, Zadar and Pula airports, which are the only ones with Split and Zagreb that currently have international traffic, do not offer the possibility of testing at the airport currently, but it is set to be introduced before the summer season begins.
