Croatia has committed to implementing the Schengen Agreement, although it has not yet done so. For citizens of the European Union (EU) or the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) (i.e. Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland), an officially recognised identity card (or passport) is sufficient for entry. For other nationalities, a passport is usually required.
Travel to or from another country (Schengen or non-Schengen) from or to Croatia is (from now on) subject to the usual immigration controls, but customs controls are abolished for travel to or from another EU country.
Check with your travel agent or the Croatian embassy or consulate.
Those who are not exempt from the visa requirement must apply for a visa in advance at a Croatian embassy or consulate. The application fee for a Croatian short-term visa is 35 EUR.
For more information on visa exemption and the visa application procedure, please visit the website of the Croatian Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs [www].
