New Covid-19 border restrictions in Croatia

By  The Dubrovnik Times Jan 13, 2021

In the last 24 hours, 1,135 new cases of Covid-19 virus infection have been reported, with a total of 5,300 active cases, the National Civil Protection Headquarters reported.

The Minister of the Interior, Davor Božinović, announced the new decisions of the Headquarters to the public.

"A new decision on borders has been made. The new decision is in line with the Headquarter’s recommendations, the list of countries that are an integral part of the decision will be made by the CNIPH, and special epidemiological measures will be applied to these passengers, which means they will have to show a negative test and go into isolation for 14 days. The quarantine can be shortened to 7 days if the person performs PCR testing at his own expense," said Božinović.

"Due to the increased number of people traveling to deliver aid and volunteer in earthquake-affected areas, special rules have been introduced and they will be able to enter the Republic of Croatia with the prior consent of the Civil Protection Headquarters. In other words, without a test," Bozinovic said.

"Passengers entering Croatia from third countries will have similar conditions as those traveling from the EU, but upon arrival from third countries due to urgent reasons such as illness, funeral, etc., entry will be limited to a maximum of 12 hours," said the minister.
