Ministry of Internal Affairs has published website with frequently asked questions and answers regarding the conditions of entry into the Republic of Croatia and an online form for additional enquiries.

Passengers coming directly from the countries and / or regions of the European Union, i.e. countries and / or regions of the Schengen Area and Schengen associated countries, and who are currently in the so-called green list of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, regardless of their citizenship, will be allowed entry into the Republic of Croatia under the same conditions as before the onset of the COVID-19 disease if they show no signs of disease and they have not been in close contact with an infected person.

All other passengers (adults and children older then 12 years) who come to the Republic of Croatia from EU / EEA member states / regions, and which are currently not on the so-called green list of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, must present one of the following documents:
