Those with BiH or Serbian citizenship who are also citizens of an EU member state may continue to freely enter Croatia without restrictions, regardless of where they come from.

Although the number of new coronavirus cases in the two neighboring countries is rising exponentially, Croatia continues to allow some of their citizens to enter its territory, a move aimed at recuperating lost revenue during the summer tourism season.

According to the National Tourist Board, about 5,000 tourists from Serbia and about 11,000 from BiH are currently in Croatia. Those numbers do not include weekend tourists from Herzegovina who do day trips to the Croatian coast.

There are about half a million foreign tourists in Croatia at the moment, mainly from Germany, Austria, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. There are 92,000 Slovenians, for instance, and Germans account for 90 percent of last year's figure at this time.
