HZJZ announced today that a change is being introduced for entry into Croatia for tourists coming from Great Britain, Cyprus and Russia.
In order to protect health and prevent the spread of COVID-19, additional epidemiological measures have been introduced to apply when crossing the border into the territory of the Republic of Croatia, and to prevent the introduction of new variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Due to the above, there was a quarantine obligation for arrivals from the Republic of South Africa, Brazil, Zanzibar and India for 14 days, which can be shortened by a negative PCR test after 7 days, according to a statement from the CNIPH.
Since the delta strain was imported from India, it has now become dominant in the European Union, with the Republic of South Africa, Brazil and Zanzibar remaining on the list of countries subject to mandatory quarantine, and mandatory cross-border quarantine the obligation to present a negative SARS-CoV-2 test result within 48 hours of crossing the border in the case of a rapid antigen test or within 72 hours in the case of a PCR test, regardless of whether the person has suffered from COVID-19 or has been vaccinated .
Due to the worsening of the epidemiological situation in United Kingdom, Cyprus and the Russian Federation, as an additional measure for all persons coming from these countries, before entering the territory of the Republic of Croatia, a negative test for SARS-CoV-2 performed in the home country is required, regardless of vaccination status or overcoming COVID-19 disease.
The decision takes effect on Monday, July 26, 2021.
