COVID19 TRAVEL RULES

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) coming directly from EU Member States or Schengen Associated countries and regions that are currently classified as "green" will be allowed entry in Croatia with no restrictions. It is required that travellers show no signs of COVID-19 disease and that they have not been in close contact with an infected person.

All travellers who, regardless of their citizenship, arrive from countries or regions that are NOT classified as "green", are subject to the requirement for a pre-departure negative PCR test or rapid antigen test for SARS-CoV-2 listed on the list of a Rapid Antigen Tests Mutually Recognized by the Member States of the European Union, published by the European Commission.

The tests must be taken within 48 hours prior to arrival. In the case of a rapid antigen test and a stay in Croatia that is longer than 10 days, a second test must be conducted within 10 days of the last test.

Persons who can present a vaccination certificate proving the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine was received more than 14 days ago, or the single-dose vaccine was received more the 14 days ago, are exempt from testing and isolation requirements.

Some categories of people are exempt.

Persons who have recovered from COVID-19 within the past three months are exempt from the obligation to provide a negative PCR test result and to self-isolate.

In order to prove their recovery, passengers need to have a positive PCR test result or antigen test result, or a positive neutralisation test (NT) result obtained within the last three months and older than 11 days, or a certificate of recovery issued by a doctor.

All travellers who, regardless of their citizenship, arrive from countries or regions that are NOT classified as "green", and do not provide a pre-departure negative PCR test, must remain in quarantine until they receive the result of a PCR test taken in Croatia.

Travellers arriving from a country or region classified as "green", who transit through high-risk countries or regions without any delay, will not be required to show a negative PCR test result for SARS-CoV-2, nor stay in quarantine, as long as they can prove this travelling through.

All travellers are advised to fill out the form at ENTERCROATIA.
