November 21, 2020 — The rise of COVID-19 infections has curtailed travel to and from Croatia and throughout Europe. Here is everything you need to know to travel to and from Croatia during the global pandemic. This document with links will be updated regularly.
Travel from Croatia
The following countries have placed Croatia on their COVID-19 red lists which means that a negative PCR test and/or a 14-day quarantine is required upon entry. Additional information on entry requirements for specific European countries can be found here (in Croatian).
Travel to Croatia
All EU/EEA citizens and EU/EEA permanent residents (EU 27 + UK + Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, as well as Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, and the Vatican) can freely enter Croatia as of July 1, without restrictions. Non-EU/EEA citizens, or citizens from third countries (including US citizens) must meet certain conditions to enter (see below).

COVID-19 PCR Test or Self-Isolation Required for Third-Country Nationals
This applies to third-country national passengers entering Croatia for permitted tourism or other business reasons or who have other economic interests, as well as people traveling for educational purposes.
These passengers may enter Croatia without the obligation of self-isolation upon presentation of a negative nasal and pharynx swab test for COVID-19, not older than 48 hours (starting from the time of taking the swab until arrival at the border crossing), or with the obligation of 14 days quarantine/self-isolation if they do not have a negative PCR test.
If third-country nationals have a test older than 48 hours upon entering Croatia, they will be allowed to enter Croatia. However, they will be required to self-isolate and test again in Croatia at their own expense. The above also applies to passengers and crew members on yachts. People who do not present a negative PCR test result are subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine/self-isolation measure.
People who have a negative PCR test, and are on the self-isolation list, whether they’ve been on the list for seven days or have re-tested because they had a test older than 48 hours when entering Croatia, are to be removed from the self-isolation list.
