Summary: This article covers the COVID-19 Entry Requirements. It also includes a list of COVID-19 testing sites provided by the US Embassy for those arriving in or living in Croatia in need of the PCR test.

If you're heading to Croatia for short or long-term stay, you will need to follow Croatia's COVID-19 Entry Requirements. We've also included a list of COVID-19 testing facilities in Croatia that was prepared by the US Embassy in Zagreb. The Embassy does not endorse these or any medical facilities.

COVID-19 Related Entry Requirements

All travelers (regardless of citizenship) who meet the entry conditions are advised to fill an arrival form at Enter Croatia in advance to facilitate their entry at the border.

Is a negative COVID-19 test required for entry? Yes

With limited exceptions, travelers must present a negative PCR test result for SARS-CoV-2 that is not older than 48 hours (counting from the time of taking the swab to arriving at the border crossing point) or have the PCR test done immediately upon arrival to Croatia and remain in self-isolation until they receive a negative test result. A local test cost ranges from $130 to $300 or more, depending upon the location, and the result can be expected between 24-48 hours. A test can be arranged at the locations below. After receiving a negative test locally, travelers will need to contact a local epidemiologist to clear them from self-isolation. Please direct questions regarding this requirement to the Croatian Ministry of Interior via the contact form at the bottom of the web page.

Are health screening procedures in place at airports and other ports of entry? Yes

The cost of the test is approximately 700HRK or around $110 payable in advance. The results are usually received between 24 48 hours.
