Croatia travel restrictions - November 21, 2020
Visitors from the EU can travel to Croatia without the restrictions, just as before the pandemic. It is advised to fill out the online form Enter Croatia before arrival, to avoid filling those papers on the border.
Visitors from non-EU countries may be asked to show proof of accommodation or any other document which will indicate they have a tourist or business reason to enter Croatia. Additionally, they need to show a negative PCR test which is no older than 48 hours, otherwise, they need to do the test in Croatia and isolate till they get the result.
There are no travel restrictions between regions in Croatia, meaning you can move freely just as before the pandemic and visit multiple tourist destinations. (We recommend everyone who visits Croatia to see Dubrovnik and Plitvice Lakes)
The current list of restrictions in Croatia to prevent the spread of coronavirus - November 21, 2020
According to the Croatian government's website related to coronavirus, restrictions which are currently applied to prevent spreading the pandemic are as following:
- Wearing masks is obligatory in all indoor spaces including shops, cinemas, banks, offices, public transportation (buses, ferries, trains). When entering a coffee shop or a restaurant, the guest is required to wear a mask. While consuming food or drinks, the mask can be removed.
- The maximum allowed number of people at public gatherings is 25. Home visits should not have more than 10 people in total.
- All sports events can be held exclusively without the audience.
- The coffee shops and restaurants can work up to 10 pm. It is forbidden to sell alcoholic drinks in a period from 10 pm to 6 am.
- All employers are advised to organise work form home or work in shifts if the nature of the work allows it.
How about the lockdown
Croatian government believes there will be no need to introduce the second national lockdown. Except for having devastating effects on the economy, a lockdown does not seem to be fully effective in suppressing the pandemic. That's why the government insists on easier restrictions like wearing masks in all indoor spaces, working from home, and keeping the social distance. They believe it will be enough to stop the disastrous effect of corona pandemic to the health care system, which has been overwhelmed by the increased number of covid positive patients during the last few weeks.
