Press Release:

Zagreb, 07 April 2020 - All short-term travel to Croatia to be avoided unless urgent!

Following the earlier call on Croatian nationals who temporarily or permanently live and work abroad to postpone all unnecessary travel to Croatia until further notice, the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, in agreement with the Civil Protection Headquarters, reiterates the importance of this appeal.

We advise that Croatian nationals stay in their place of residence to minimize exposure and reduce the risk of coronavirus infection for themselves, their families and those around them. It is recommended that all short-term travel to Croatia be avoided unless it is urgent!

All persons entering Croatia from abroad will be subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine or will be issued an order to self-isolate for 14 days. They will undergo the same procedure upon return to the countries they came from.

The Ministry also warns of frequent changes in other countries, including changes of rules concerning border crossing or air travel, which could make it difficult or impossible for Croatian nationals to return to the countries they live and work in.
