The tourism board of Croatia recently dropped pandemic entry restrictions, and this has made vacations a lot easier to manage. This is great news for travellers who plan to visit the country.
Like other Mediterranean countries like Greece and Cyprus, Croatia now doesn’t have any domestic restrictions regarding Covid-19. It also lacks entry rules such as the requirement to complete a passenger locator form. You also don’t need to present a negative Covid-19 test or proof of vaccination from Covid-19 at the Croatian border.
The travel restrictions had been in place until the end of April, and on the 3rd of May, the government decided not to extend them.
As noted by the Croatian National Tourism Board, travellers visiting the country only need to follow the restrictions that were in place before the Covid-19 pandemic. These include the use of valid travel documents.
It is also worth noting that the country doesn’t have mask mandates anymore. Travellers will only need to wear masks when accessing healthcare facilities.
In reality, there is very little sign that the country suffered a pandemic in the recent past. All domestic Covid-19 measures have been dropped, and healthcare facilities are open and operating at full capacity. Croatia has also dropped limits on the capacity for venues and public transport. Festivals and events have also returned, and beaches and museums are welcoming a steady stream of visitors. This is despite the fact that tourism season hasn’t gotten to its peak yet.
Darija Reic, the director of the tourism board’s office in the United Kingdom even noted that Croatia is set for a strong tourism season.
Lots of people visit Croatia to enjoy the warm weather, and the country is also a cultural jewel. Historically, it has had influences from the ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Ottomans, and even Napoleon Bonaparte. It has a wealth of historical sites, including castles, churches, and theatres.
