Excellent destination news has come out as Croatia removed all entry requirements for travellers from the 1st of May.  

Yesterday, on Tuesday the 3rd of May, the Croatian National Tourist Office released a statement confirming that they have dropped all Covid-related entry requirements from the 1st of May.  

This statement comes only days after they removed entry requirements and claimed to return to a pre-pandemic state of entry rules. This also comes only a few weeks after Croatia relaxed face covering restrictions on the 12th of April, leaving rules in place for proof of vaccination and testing requirements.  

This means that as of the 1st of May, the only entry rules for all travellers, regardless of vaccination status, will be those for valid travel documents and further pre-pandemic rules.  

The Croatian National Tourist Office said in their statement, “This is to inform you that from 1 May 2022, Croatia has dropped all Covid-19 entry requirements. 

“All travellers entering Croatia can now do so under the same conditions of entry that were in force before the Covid-19 pandemic, i.e. with valid travel documents.” 

The CNTO’s London office also said to TTG Media, “We are very pleased to confirm that as a result of Croatia’s decision to remove Covid-19 restrictions for incoming travellers from the UK, this enables them to visit and holiday in Croatia without having to take any Covid-19 tests or show proof of vaccination.” 

Darija Reic, director of the tourist board’s office in the UK, added, “We are happy to confirm that Croatia has dropped all Covid entry requirements for Brits. 

“In 2019, we welcomed around 900,000 travellers from the UK, and with the return of numerous flights this year from the UK to Pula, Rijeka, Zadar, Split, Dubrovnik and Zagreb, we hope this news will incite many more to choose our sunny coast and lustrous inland for their well deserved summer break. 

“With a number of new hotels, restaurants, and events confirmed for this summer, Croatia is set for a strong season ahead.” 

Though this statement and update came yesterday, on the 3rd of May, the Foreign Travel Advice page has not yet been updated. The CNTO claimed the FCDO have been informed and this update can be expected to come shortly.
