Tourism Minister Gary Cappelli was also present at today's press conference, announcing an additional opening of the borders.
In the next period, Croatia will have controlled tourism, and by filling out the web application, guests will cross the border in a few seconds, without waiting, Cappelli said. Index.hr
"Guests will not have to wait at the border, but by filling out the web application they will cross the border in advance in a few seconds. By May 28, we will have a platform-based application that was previously used as a license. In the first place, we need to know what tourists expect when they come to CroatiaSaid Cappelli.
This is a voluntary application that will enable tourists to meet the conditions in advance and enter the Republic of Croatia. ”Here we will make a redistribution at the border crossings so that those who have registered with the CNIPH through the application can pass without any delay. Once you receive an answer through the application and when you have registered where you will stay in the Republic of Croatia, it is valid as long as this measure is valid", Added the Minister of the Interior and Head of the National Civil Protection Headquarters Davor Božinović.
The Minister of Tourism emphasized that hotels are reopening, depending on the possibilities and the arrival of tourists, and that for foreign tourists there are already explanations in English for all segments of tourism.
Cappelli specified that these notices include behavior at the hotel on arrival, contactless hotel reservations and trips to the pool or the beach. ”Tourists who come cannot say that they do not know how to behave in the Republic of Croatia '', he added.
Cappelli reported that some tourists who had previously canceled reservations were making reservations again for June and that Germany, in agreement with the ministers of all EU countries, had expressed a desire to allow citizens to come to sea from 15 June. The same date applies to Poland, he added.
"With third countries, everything depends on an agreement at EU level. We are trying to respect the protocol agreed at the EU level, but also to respect bilateral agreements as we had with SloveniaSaid Cappelli.
