Procedures for health surveillance of travelers crossing the border crossings of the Republic of Croatia

 

Entry into the Republic of Croatia for foreign citizens
In order for you to cross the Croatian border more simply and safely, a short online form has been created and all visitors are advised to announce their visit by filling out the form on the following site:

The online form includes all data normally requested in the process of crossing the border and with the simple presentation of a passport or identity document to a police officer at the border, the number or code from the identity card or passport is automatically linked to all pre-entered data. In this way, the time to complete the entire procedure of data entry at the border for each individual person in any given vehicle is reduced to a minimum and traffic flow is increased.
In the reply, you will also receive basic epidemiological recommendations.
