Croatia now joins a list of more than 15 European destinations that have dropped all restrictions.

A statement read: “All travelers entering Croatia can now do so under the same entry requirements that were in place before the Covid-19 pandemic, i.e. with valid travel documents.”

To enter Croatia, British tourists must have a passport valid for at least three months beyond the date you plan to leave the country.

Your passport must also be less than 10 years old on the day you enter Croatia and not be damaged or have missing pages.

Darija Reic, director of the Croatia National Tourist Board in the UK, said: “We are pleased to confirm that Croatia has waived all Covid entry requirements for Britons.

“In 2019 we welcomed around 900,000 travelers from the UK, and with many UK flights returning this year to Pula, Rijeka, Zadar, Split, Dubrovnik and Zagreb, we hope this news will inspire many. more to choose our coast sun and lustrous interior for their well-deserved summer break.

“With a number of new hotels, restaurants and events confirmed for this summer, Croatia is ready for a good season ahead.”

Other European destinations that dropped Covid restrictions ahead of the summer include Greece and France.

Britons have recently been dealt a blow after Spain extended its strict entry rules for another two weeks.

Currently, only people between the ages of 12 and 17 who are not vaccinated can enter the country with a simple Covid test.

While it was hoped this would be dropped in time for the May holidays, the government has extended the Covid requirement until at least May 15, when it will again be reassessed.

There is however some hope, with the rules only extended for the next two weeks, that they could be lifted in time for the summer holidays.
