Covid Travel requirements in Croatia – what to expect in summer 2023

The tourism board of Croatia dropped pandemic entry restrictions in the early summer of 2022 and is not planning to bring them back! This has made vacations a lot easier to manage and is keeping the steady flow of travelers who plan to visit the country.

Like in the summer of 2022, travelers are no longer required to complete an online entry form before arriving in Croatia. However, all third-country nationals must register their arrival in Croatia via their accommodation provider within 1 day, or with the police within 48 hours of arrival (using the form obrazac 16 a).

Since everything is back to normal travelers are not required to show a COVID-19 vaccine certificate, proof of a negative test, or a certificate of recovery to enter Croatia.

It is worth noticing that entry requirements for Croatia are the same for all travelers, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status. Moreover, you do not have to wear masks in Croatia anymore except when accessing healthcare facilities.

As noted by the Croatian National Tourism Board, travelers 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 – and this is a good heads up - check your passport and travel documents before you travel to Croatia!

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. Festivals and events have returned in full form and beaches and museums are welcoming a steady stream of visitors, like before the summer of 2020.

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.
