As N1 writes, Croatia is introducing new set of restrictions on its border crossings to prevent spread of COVID-19 disease.

Starting with December 1, 2020, visitors from EU countries, which are not listed on ECDC green list, will have to showcase negative PCR test on coronavirus, which is no older than 48 hours. Otherwise, they may be required to take a test in Croatia and self-isolate until the results are available.

This tightening of measures is the result of the bad epidemiological situation in Croatia, which has recorded the highest daily number of deaths since the start of the pandemic.

Practically speaking, this decision means that the majority of the EU citizens will be required to do the test before arriving to Croatia since most of the EU is currently red zone.

This decision comes just days after the Croatian government decided to introduce a partial lockdown, closing bars and restaurants while keeping shops open.

The full text of new measures can be found on Civil protection website.
