Minister of Tourism Gary Capelli was a guest on HRT's show last night "Theme of the dayHe emphasized that it was agreed that there would be mobility, ie it would be possible to travel from one country to another.
Capelli also said that the important questions are which way they will travel, because we are not all at the same level of the problem, that is, we do not all have the same number infected with coronavirus.
"With two or three other countries, Croatia has made a step forward in the fight against coronavirus, and we are recognized by that. With great restrictions and everything we did, "tightening the belt" as they say, we have become recognizable and everyone wants to come to Croatia", Cappelli pointed out and added that the travel protocol will be at the level of the European Union, but that, like other countries, it will work on bilateral relations, especially with the countries with which we are neighbors.
The border with Slovenia will be opened first
We will agree everything with Slovenia in the next two weeks, Cappelli pointed out and emphasized that he would try to open the borders with Slovenia by the end of May and have a joint agreement, of course with the agreement of epidemiologists.
Capelli said no one would be barred from coming, but that the question was whether some countries would let their citizens out of their countries at all.
"Italy will open its borders to its counties at the end of May, as they still do not have inter-county and regional connections. Until they do, it will be very difficult to get out of Italy, added Capelli and said that talks had been held bilaterally for ten days with the Czechs and colleagues from Hungary and Austria.
The Minister said that it was included in the Cro card program and that we would use it to encourage Croatian tourists to stay in Croatia for the summer. "The future of Croatia is in health tourismCappelli concluded.
