Croatian government allows extra 2,000 work visas for foreigners

By  Jun 19, 2019

The Croatian government decided today to increase the number of work visas for foreign workers by an extra 2,000. At the 162nd Session of the Government of the Republic of Croatia, a decision was made on amendments to the decision on determining the annual quota for foreigner employment for the calendar year 2019.

This latest decision means that an extra 2,000 visas will be made available in the tourism sector and 1,000 in the construction sector.

The President of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, Luka Burilovic commented “Increasing the quota was a necessary measure to help employers. The only alternative was to lock the doors or to see the quality of work suffer, which in the middle of the tourist season is disastrous.”
