Travel advice from ABTA Magazine as tourism restarts.
From the stunning Adriatic coast to the amazing natural parks, Croatia has an extraordinary natural and architectural diversity and beauty. Whether you prefer island-hopping, exploring ancient sites, trying local food, practising sport or organising a business conference, Croatia has plenty to offer throughout the year. Approximately 860,000 British nationals visited Croatia in 2018
As lockdown continues to ease, the government has revealed a list of countries from which inbound tourist and returning travellers do not need to self-isolate (also known as the travel corridors list) – ending its blanket 14-day quarantine policy. However, it is not necessarily the case that Britons can enter the countries on the exemptions list without needing to quarantine, or that flights are even currently available (research suggests as little as a third of the countries can be visited without restrictions). Although firm favourites France and Italy made it on to lists revealed by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) and the Department for Transport (DfT), the USA and Portugal were notable exceptions.
Croatia is exempt from the FCO advice against all non-essential international travel and is on the Department for Transport’s exemption list, meaning when returning to the UK, travellers will not need to self-isolate for 14 days. There is currently no requirement to self-isolate on arrival in Croatia; however, the Croatian government has introduced a new online entry form, while there are regional restrictions on travel.
In Croatia, it is mandatory for passengers to wear masks on public transport and taxis and in shops and other commercial premises. See more here.
