Important Information

Border formalities & Visas
  • Foreign visitors must have a valid passport or some other personal ID, on the basis of which the border crossing will be all allowed.
  • Entrance or transit visas are issued in embassies and consulates of the Republic of Croatia and on every border crossing.

 

Custom regulations
  • Customs regulations in the Republic of Croatia are almost entirely harmonised with EU regulations and standards, but the value of those non-commercial items that are brought into the country for personal use and are exempt from tax duty or PDV (VAT), is limited to only 1,000 HRK (kuna).
  • Foreign and local currency and cheques may be freely taken in and out of the country by both foreign and Croatian citizens with foreign residence, but transfers of an amount of 10,000 Euros or more must be declared to a customs official. Valuable professional equipment and other technical devices must also be declared to a customs official at the border crossing.

 

Pets
  • Pets must have a vaccination card and a proof of the veterinary check-up.

 

Motor vehicles & Boats
  • A valid driver’s licence, insurance  for a vehicle and owner’s authorization, if a driver isn’t a vehicle proprietor, is obligatory.
  • Boats for personal use should be registered in the Harbour Master’s office.

 

Health services
  • There are hospitals and clinics located in all larger towns and cities, while smaller centres have dispensaries and pharmacies only.
  • Foreign visitors who are covered by health insurance in their own country are not obliged to pay for emergency medical services during a private stay in the Republic of Croatia if a convention on Social Security has been signed between Croatia and the visitors’ country of origin, i.e. if they have in their possession a certificate stipulated by such a convention confirming their right to health care.
  • Health care (including transport) is used for emergency cases in the manner and according to regulations valid for Croatian citizens covered by Social Security, with identical participation in health care costs (participation).
  • Persons coming from countries with which no such convention has been signed personally bear the costs of health services rendered.
