Coronavirus (COVID-19) travel restrictions in Croatia – updated 17 February 2021

Travelers from the UK, or any other non-EU/EEA country, are not permitted to enter Croatia due to Coronavirus measures. Restrictions are expected to remain in place until 28 February 2021. 

Croatia continues to follow the European Union’s (E.U.) safety recommendations, while also balancing the economic need for tourism.

From 1 December 2020 to 15 Jan 15 2021, the Croatian border is closed to foreign travelers, including Americans, with some exceptions:

Visitors from EU / EEA countries currently on the so‑called green list of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control will be allowed entry into the Republic of Croatia without a negative PCR test if they show no signs of disease and have not been in close contact with an infected person. Travelers who have traveled through areas not on the green list must prove they did not stay in those areas.

From 1 January 2021 UK nationals traveling to Croatia from the UK, or any other non-EU/EEA country, are not permitted to enter the country.

Travelers from countries covered by Annex I to Council Recommendation (EU) 2020/912, including Australia, Japan, and New Zealand, may enter under the same conditions as above.

Travelers from EU / EEA countries not on the green list must present a negative PCR test result taken no more than 48 hours before entry, or have a PCR test done immediately upon arrival at their own expense (and must self-isolate until they receive a negative test).

Like other member countries of the European Union, masks are required in shops in Croatia. You also need to wear a mask while on public transportation and in taxis. Avoid crowded, indoor areas, such as bars and nightclubs, which have been sources of the virus spreading in the country. There are plenty of outdoor experiences to enjoy, and tour operators are imposing strict measures to keep travelers safe.
