Croatia travel: latest update
Croatia has reopened its borders to British visitors – but it’s not quite as simple as that. With the Foreign Office advising against all non-essential travel, Brits should wait a little longer before they enjoy a Croatia holiday.
Croatia began reopening its borders in mid-May, initially to 10 European countries including Germany and Austria. The borders are open to British citizens and airlines are operating from the UK to Croatia, so it is possible to enter the country as long as you provide confirmation of where you are staying on arrival. However, going against Foreign Office advice will invalidate any travel insurance. Plus, on returning to the UK, Brits would be subject to the UK government’s 14-day quarantine restrictions.
Croatia has had one of Europe’s lowest COVID-19 infection rates and is close to the consecutive zero cases required to be declared ‘COVID free’. There are no quarantine restrictions on arrival into the country, unless travellers are deemed to have been in contact with a person infected with COVID-19. All beaches are open, as well as a number of hotels and restaurants, with social distancing recommendations in place.
