Arriving from countries or regions classified as "green"
Croatia applies the commonly agreed EU "Traffic Lights" approach to travel restrictions from/to the EU Member States and Schengen Associated Countries.
Travellers - regardless of their citizenship - arriving from EU Member States or Schengen Associated countries / regions classified as "green" can enter Croatia without being subject to any isolation or test requirement.
For these travellers, testing and quarantine are not required also in case of transit through high-risk countries or regions.
Arriving from countries or regions NOT classified as "green"
A vaccination certificate, proving that the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine (or single dose for Johnson & Johnson) was received more than 14 days before crossing the state border, must be presented
Recovery from COVID-19 in the last 6 months
A Positive result to a COVID-19 test (PCR or rapid antigen test) performed in the previous 180 days and older than 11 days from the date of arrival at the border crossing point, or a certificate issued by a physician confirming that the holder has recovered from the SARS-CoV-2 virus infection, must be presented. If a person has recovered from COVID-19 and has a medical certificate or a positive test, and has been vaccinated with at least one dose of vaccine after recovery, the exemption from testing and isolation is extended until 5 months after vaccination.
All other travellers aged above 7 have to provide a negative COVID-19 test (PCR or rapid antigen test - RAT).

The results of the above tests must not be older than 48 hours (counting from the time of taking the swab to arriving at the border crossing point).
In lack of a valid COVID-19 test, travellers will have to immediately perform, upon arrival in Croatia, a PCR or rapid antigen test at their own expenses, with the obligation to stay in self-isolation until a negative test result. If testing cannot be performed, a 10-day quarantine is imposed.
Some categories of people are exempt.
