ZAGREB, 7 May 2021 – Croatia and Hungary have reached a bilateral agreement recognising each other’s vaccination certificates for any COVID-19 vaccine, said Ivana Herceg, director of the Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ) in Budapest.
This is an agreement which, with the presentation of a vaccination certificate, will enable unhindered travel of Croatian and Hungarian citizens between the two countries, and which citizens of each country will be able to cross borders without mandatory self-isolation or a negative test.
“This is great news ahead of the main part of the tourist season during which the highest tourist traffic is expected in Croatia, and good trends from the Hungarian market are confirmed by today’s virtual presentation and business workshop organised by the Croatian Tourist Board in Budapest in cooperation with the Zadar County Tourist Board. This virtual event brought together more than 110 participants, and almost 300 individual meetings will be held during the day,“ HTZ said.
“The great interest of Hungarian partners for virtual presentations and business workshops is a good indicator towards the tourist season. In addition to reminding all participants of the beauties of Croatia, and especially Zadar County, we informed them about the current travel conditions between the two countries. The news of concluding a bilateral agreement between Croatia and Hungary came at the right time and a large number of Hungarians will surely choose Croatian destinations as their destinations,”said Herceg, adding that the first airline between Budapest and Zadar, which will operate twice a week from July, will contribute to good trends.
The focus of the virtual event was to inform Hungarian partners about the current conditions of entry into Croatia and return to Hungary, the presentation of the national safety label Safe stay in Croatia, as well as the presentation of the rich offer of Zadar County.
