Tourists returning to their countries do not have to self-isolate but will have to present a negative PCR or rapid antigen test result if they are not vaccinated, the tourism and sports ministry said in a press release after the whole country turned red on the updated COVID-19 transmission map produced by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
To provide all travellers with everything they need on their journey during the pandemic, 350 additional testing points have been set up across the country, so that all tourists can get tested before returning to their countries if needed, the ministry also said.
The ministry has also ensured 1.08 million tests will be made available at affordable prices by regional public health institutes for tourists who have spent three or more nights in commercial accommodation.
Foreign nationals can also get vaccinated in Croatia, the press release also reads.
“There are currently still over half a million tourists in Croatia, which is more compared with the same period in 2019, and that should be an incentive and a reminder to everyone that with responsible behaviour, tourism can still achieve great results,” said Tourism and Sports Minister Nikolina Brnjac.
