Yesterday it was announced that Slovenians who own property in Croatia, as some 100,000 do, will be able to enter the country without a 14-day quarantine period. But what does that mean for you?

Joe Orovic, of Total Croatia News, dug into the facts and found out the following.

First up, rather than “Slovenians” alone this applies to all EU residents, although “foreigners hoping to enter Croatia must provide proof they either: own real estate or a vessel in Croatia; are attending a funeral; or have been invited to the country by some business entity to conduct economic activity.”

But what if you book a room in a hotel and the hotel invites you stay for some economic activity? Well, that remains unclear, although the Croatian Interior Minister, Davor Božinović, did say that the Border Administration has created a special email address where non-Croats can ask if they meet the conditions for entry into the country: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

There’s further confusion as to what you can actually do in Croatia, with Božinović saying that people should stay in their accommodation as much as possible.

What’s more, at present those entering Slovenia are supposed to self-isolate for seven days, although there are claims Slovenia is considering dropping this requirement for those who leave the country for no more than 72 hours.

In short, if you must go to Croatia then send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
