Visa regulations and different legal provisions

Travel documentation
Passport or some other internationally recognized identification document. Tourists may remain in Croatia for up to three months.

Since 1 April 2013, the Republic of Croatia has been applying the European Union’s Common Visa Policy. Pursuant to the Government’s Decision, the Republic of Croatia applies the Decision No 565/2014/EU according to which all third-country nationals who are holders of valid Schengen documents, as well as national visas and residence permits of Bulgaria, Cyprus, and Romania do not require an additional (Croatian) visa for Croatia. Further information about the visa regime between the Republic of Croatia and all other countries is available at

The travel document which a third-country national is using to enter Croatia must be valid for at least another three months after the planned departure from Croatia and issued within the previous 10 years (e.g. a third-country national staying in Croatia until 26 December 2016 has to hold a passport valid at least until 27 March 2017).
This does not apply to EU/EEA citizens who can enter Croatia with a passport or an identity card, both valid for the duration of stay and exit from Croatia.

The Customs regulations of the Republic of Croatian are in line with the regulations of the European Union.
When entering Croatia, passengers and visitors are entitled to bring in personal baggage, including foods, drugs, weapons and other goods in accordance with that prescribed by the customs regulations.
Detailed instructions and information about carrying certain objects, plants, animals into Croatia can be found on the Ministry of Customs and Finance Administration’s website:

When you check in a hotel, hostel, campsite or an apartment, you will automatically be registered in the eVisitro system, a matter required by law.
