With so many countries imposing different rules to enter, it is a confusing time for tourists. The Croatian Tourist Board has developed a simple, easy-to-follow chart detailing what tourists require in order to visit Croatia.
Considering the situation in the tourist industry, Croatia last year enjoyed a busy summer and out-performed other popular European destinations.
This week the entry rules were explained which are to remain in place during the entire summer season, barring any unforeseen event.
There are 6 entry requirement options with visitors needing to fulfil one to enter:
1. A negative PCR (taken 72 hours before arrival at the border) or Antigen test (taken 24 hours before arrival at the boarder).
2. A vaccination certificate showing final dose taken more than 14 days ago.
3. Booster dose certificate.
4. Proof of recovery from Covid more than 11 days and less than 180 days ago.
5. Proof of recovery from Covid and first dose of vaccine more than 11 days and less than 270 days ago.
6. Pay for a test on arrival and remain in self-isolation until a negative result.
All children under 12 years of age are exempt from providing test results if their parent or guardian fulfil all requirements.
(All tests taken and used as supporting evidence must be recognised by the EU).
Those visiting from outside the EU also need to show evidence of either owning a property in Croatia or confirmation of reservation or paid accommodation in either hotel, camp site, private rental, boat or other tourism accommodation provider.
“We cannot wait to welcome you to our beautiful country and are dedicated to keeping you, our people and visitors safe as possible, so you can explore with peace of mind,” the tourist board said in its introduction.
The rules explained in different languages in the tweet below.
