Croatia is currently preparing all conditions for the ‘easier’ arrival of tourists to the country this season, the tourist board said on Thursday.
In preparation for the tourist season, Croatia takes systematic care of all segments in order to meet all safety and health conditions, and at the same time make it easier for tourists to come to Croatia as a desirable tourist destination. An important step in the preparations for the tourist season is to enable foreign citizens to cross the state border as easily as possible, which was announced today at the press conference of the Croatian Civil Protection Headquarters, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, Davor Božinović, said today.
“Tourists coming to Croatia, who have either been vaccinated, or have overcome COVID or have a negative PCR or antigen test from the list of EU tests, will be able to enter Croatia,” said Božinović, emphasising that Croatia will implement these conditions in its decisions even before the final decision on digital green passes at EU level.
Božinović says that Croatia is preparing for the season to be as good as possible and says it is up to everyone to make this happen.
In addition to the announced decision, the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, in cooperation with regional tourist boards and the Croatian Institute of Public Health, is already considering a model that would allow tourists to have rapid antigen tests and PCR tests at as many tourist destination points.
Also, in order to encourage all tourist stakeholders and all other stakeholders in the travel chain in Croatia to adhere to epidemiological measures, and tourists get all the information about safety protocols and the epidemiological situation in Croatia, the Ministry of Tourism and Sports launched the Safe stay in Croatia project with more than 10,000 stakeholders from the tourism sector already joined.
“Enabling foreign citizens to cross the state border more easily by presenting a negative PCR test or antigen tests approved in the European Union, a certificate of overcoming COVID-19, or a vaccination certificate is a new step towards creating all the necessary pre-conditions for Croatia to have a successful tourist season, the statement concluded.
