Croatia drops all Covid entry restrictions on travel; Italy will review the rules this month

blank

Croatia has dropped all remaining Covid travel rules, the country’s tourism board has announced.

All travelers entering Croatia can now do so under the same entry conditions that applied before the Covid-19 pandemic, i.e. with valid travel documents,” read a statement from the Croatian National Tourist Board (CNTO).

This means that travelers no longer need to present a negative Covid test result or proof of vaccination to enter the country.

Before May 1st, unvaccinated visitors had to take a PCR test within 72 hours of travel or an antigen test within 24 hours, while all visitors had to fill out an online health form – now scrapped.

“We are pleased to confirm that Croatia has dropped all Covid entry requirements for Brits,” said Darija Reic, UK Director of the CNTO.

“With numerous flights returning this year from the UK to Pula, Rijeka, Zadar, Split, Dubrovnik and Zagreb, we hope this news will inspire many more to choose our sunny coast and gleaming inland for their well-deserved summer break .

“Croatia is in for a strong season with a number of new hotels, restaurants and events confirmed for this summer.”

This follows Greece’s decision to remove its pre-travel PCR test for unvaccinated visitors, as well as proof of vaccination for vaccinated arrivals, from May 1. The country had previously ended its passenger locator form on March 15.

Greek Health Minister Thanos Plevris stressed the government sees this as a suspension of rules for the summer season rather than an end to it, with the relaxed policy set to be reviewed at the end of August.

The countries join a list of over 15 destinations including Ireland, Norway, Iceland and Madeira which have now all lifted Covid travel restrictions on holidaymakers.

Italy, meanwhile, has removed its passenger tracing form for holidaymakers, although other travel restrictions remain in place as travelers are still required to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test result to enter the country.

A certificate of recovery within the last six months is also accepted.

On May 30, Italian authorities will review the current restrictions and decide whether to lift them, rather than setting a firm end date.

An extension of the rules is also possible.

Locally, Italy has relaxed its mask guidelines as restaurants, bars or shops no longer insist on face coverings.

However, wearing masks in other indoor spaces – including public transport, healthcare facilities, theatres, cinemas, clubs and concert halls – will remain mandatory until at least June 15.
