In the past 24 hours, 216 new cases of coronavirus infection were recorded in Croatia, and eight people have died. 753 patients are in hospitals and 82 are on respirators. As of today, it is possible to request a certificate that will facilitate the crossing of borders with all EU member states, with which bilateral agreements have been signed.

The pandemic is calming down, and the vaccine is arriving according to the planned dynamics.

“There is enough vaccine, 8,000,000 doses of AstraZeneca, Pfizer BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. More than enough for our citizens and more to support countries that have less,” said Prime Minister Andrej Plenković.

As of today it is possible to obtain a Covid certificate. It can be requested by citizens vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency, those with a negative PCR or antigen test, and those who have recovered from Covid-19, 11 days from the date of their last positive test.

“All that will soon receive a digital certificate can come to Croatia, and will stop at the border for a minimal time. We are liberal in this, in the sense of one dose and 22 days,” said the head of the National Civil Protection Headquarters, Davor Božinović.

“About 15,000 certificates have been issued so far,” said Božinović.

The certificate can be requested through the e-Citizens portal or physically at branches of the Croatian Health Insurance Bureau. An agreement on the recognition of certificates has been reached with more than ten countries. Austria is among them, so as of today, passengers traveling from Croatia to that country do not have to be quarantined.

“As far as bilateral arrangements are concerned, I personally spoke with practically all prime ministers from central and Eastern Europe, from where numerous tourists will come to Croatia this year,” said Prime Minister Andrej Plenković.

The Prime Minister also announced a new decision by the Civil protection Headquarters.

“The headquarters will adopt a decision by which those who received one dose of the vaccine can come to Croatia after 22 days; therefore things for tourism will be good,” said the Prime Minister.

As of today, the “Safe Gatherings” platform will be launched, which will enable safer organization and attendance of cultural events first, and then of other types of events later.
