As HRT turizam writes, UK visitors will have to show proof of negative COVID-19 test when entering Croatia, no matter if they took the vaccine, or if they had COVID-19 disease recently. This measure will start to apply on Monday, July 26, 2021.
Croatian government wants to avoid the 2020 summer season scenario when Croatia suddenly entered the red zone on the ECDC map. That's why the government is putting additional efforts to recognise the risks and to prevent the increased number of positive cases. Recently, ECDC put the Croatian coast on the orange list, which is only one step away from the red list, which would be disastrous for Croatian tourism and travel. The 2021 season has been quite good so far, and everyone wants it to stay that way.
The UK visitors have been recognised to have more risk of spreading the infection than others since the delta variant has been spreading around the UK for a while. Additionally, there have been many discussions and negative reactions to the recent UK reopening, which has been considered risky and premature by many politicians and scientists.
