Visitors are advised to fill in the application and announce their arrival before travelling in order to shorten the waiting time on border control. All visitors entering the Republic of Croatia are obliged to follow instructions and recommendations of the Croatian Institute of Public Health.

The above written conditions may change in a very short time according to the epidemiological situation, therefore visitors are advised to follow the webpage of the Croatian Ministry of Interior:
