As we know, the application of safety and health protocols, as well as the vaccination of tourism workers, will certainly be an important element of Croatia's perception as a safe destination.
To this end, a national safety label was presented - Safe stay in Croatia.
The Safe Stay in Croatia label is awarded free of charge to stakeholders from the Croatian tourism sector and others who are part of the travel chain, such as carriers, airports, stations, nautical ports and marinas, who log in to the system and fill out an admission form current health and safety recommendations of the Croatian Institute of Public Health.
The prominently marked Stay safe in Croatia label provides information to all visitors that the tourist facility of their interest operates according to the current recommendations of the World Travel and Tourism Council and the Croatian Institute of Public Health.
Until yesterday, Safe Stay in Croatia applied for the safety label already 3.500 tourist entities in Croatia. You can sign up HERE

It is imperative that everyone in tourism take the Safe stay in Croatia label and clearly display it on their facilities. Also, in order to present Croatia as a safe destination, it is important that the tags, like all other accompanying video and photo materials, communicate through their social channels and generally in communication with the market and guests.
Accommodation facilities and all other tourist facilities that will not have a sticker are less secure?
In the wasteland of the internet, the question has been asked does any accommodation that does not have the said label mean that the same is epidemiologically unsafe? That! Of course not a priori, and vice versa. We always have that human factor, but it is a matter of primary responsibility and it is pointless to discuss it at all from today’s perspective.
In the perception of the guest, if someone does not have a label, it means that he has not passed the set epidemiological standards, and therefore it means that he is less safe. Also, as I mentioned, there will be controls, but more importantly, guests will be able to report accommodation or facility that does not adhere to the protocol.
If you are engaged in tourism, you simply have to have the mentioned sticker. Without any discussion, because that means sticking to default epidemiological protocols and safety. If we want to deal with tourism, then it is imperative that everyone in tourism take the label Safe stay in Croatia.
