The Croatian government will introduce a visa system for Turkish nationals wanting to visit Croatia, and it has upset Turkish officials.
Croatia, who look set to join the EU on 1 July 2013, will introduce visa regulations from 1 April for Turkish citizens. Travel agents believe that the decision will have a negative effect on the Croatian economy, saying visas will put off travelers. More than 2,400 recently travelled to Dubrovnik on Croatia’s Adriatic coast over a recent festive period as Croatia gains in popularity as a destination for Turks.
The visa regulations are made to bring Croatia in line with EU directives. Recently it was announced that Russians will also require a visa now to enter Croatia
