Letter of Guarantee

1. Visa applicants on private visit, invited by a natural person, must enclose along with the visa application a letter of guarantee by natural person as proof of the purpose of their visit, filled out by the guarantor – a natural person from Croatia.

The guarantor can be a Croatian national or an alien with granted residence in Croatia, who receives income or has financial means in Croatia.

Along with the letter of guarantee, the guarantor-natural person must enclose proof of a permanent source of income in the Republic of Croatia (certificate of salary, certificate of pension) in the preceding three months or the relevant proof of possession of funds in the bank.

The guarantor's signature on the letter of guarantee shall be certified by a public notary.

If the guarantor is present when submitting the visa application, the signature on the letter of guarantee may also be notarised (certified):
by the Croatian Embassy/Consulate if the guarantor is a Croatian national, or
by the competent authority of the receiving state, if the guarantor is an alien.
The Embassy/Consulate keeps the original letter of guarantee.

The applicant receives a copy of the letter of guarantee, so that he/she may present it as evidence of the purpose of stay in Croatia if requested to do so by the border control authorities.
