Since the Covid-19 restrictions started to be eased on the 27th of April life in Croatia has slowly but surely returned to some kind of normal. Cafés, restaurants, hotels and hairdressers are back to work and after the third phase of relaxing the measures the number of new cases of Covid-19 across Croatia hasn’t increased, in fact it has continued its downward spiral. One measure that was dealt with special care was the reopening of Croatia’s borders. The European Union extended the travel ban on its external borders until the 15th of June.
“The entry of EU citizens into Croatia has increased. In the period between May 13 and 21, a total of 277,805 people entered, with 145,801 Croatian citizens, and 132,000 foreigners. In the same period, 225,438 passengers left Croatia, an equal ratio of foreigners and Croatian citizens,” commented the Minister of the Interior Davor Bozinovic on Thursday.
Bozinovic added that Croatia’s borders were primarily open for EU citizens but that citizens of other countries could also enter if they meet certain conditions.
In spite of these Covid-19 relaxation measures the actual number of new cases of the virus up and down the country continues to fall. The entire Dubrovnik – Neretva County hasn’t recorded a new cases of Covid-19 for a full two weeks. And even with this new influx of foreign visitors the numbers are still stable.
