The National Civil Protection Headquarters has made a new decision on crossing the state border, which restricts non-obligatory arrivals to Croatia, especially from countries where a new strain of coronavirus is spreading, such as Great Britain and South Africa.
The list of these countries will be adopted by the Croatian Institute of Public Health, and special epidemiological measures will be applied to passengers from these countries, said Headquarters’ Chief Davor Božinović at a press conference, explaining that the decision is not related to citizenship but to the area from which a person is coming.
“Passengers from these countries must show a negative PCR test no older than 48 hours when entering Croatia and will be ordered to isolate for 14 days. At the moment, Great Britain and the Republic of South Africa are on that list,” said Božinović.
He added that their quarantine could be reduced to seven days if they perform PCR testing in authorized institutions and if the test is negative.
Persons from third countries, who come for urgent personal reasons - funerals, medical treatment, etc., will have their stay in Croatia limited to a maximum of 12 hours.
“Special rules have been introduced for people who come to deliver aid to the earthquake-affected area. They will be able to enter Croatia based on the prior consent of the headquarters, in other words without a test,” concluded Božinović.
