Croatian Prime Minister, Andrej Plenkovic, has stated that Croatia is ready and prepared for Brexit. "We have adopted the necessary laws to get Croatia prepared for (Brexit)," said the premier.
The Prime Minister made these announcements during a meeting on Croatia’s participation in the European Council.
- For the Republic of Croatia, it is vital to preserve the rights of Croatian citizens in the UK, as well as the UK citizens in Croatia, and provide them with clarity regarding their future status. – states the government website in the section Brexit – General Information.
As Croatia is so popular with British tourists there have been fears on hold ups on the border crossings after Brexit, at least until the situation becomes clearer.
- In case of a no deal-scenario, the UK leaving the EU without the agreement, the Croatian Government is currently undertaking all measures necessary for establishing the conditions of reciprocity in order to minimize the effect of withdrawal on citizens and business activities. The condition of reciprocity means that Croatian citizens in the UK would enjoy the same rights as the UK citizens in Croatia – states the website.
