It is not a secret that plenty of people can’t wait for a summer vacation. Many Czechs are traditionally going to Croatia, and we have good news for you.
According to tn.cz, people arriving from the European Union or the Schengen area need only an antigen test to enter the country.
Although the situation with coronavirus in Croatia is critical, the country is trying to prepare for the upcoming summer season and accommodate as many tourists as possible.
Travelers who arrive in Croatia from Schengen or European Union and stay there for only 10 days, will be required to show the proof of an antigen test.
In addition, they will not need to undergo extra testing on arrival. “Whether it will work depends on the countries to which they are going to return,” said Croatian Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic.
People who have already had coronavirus or been vaccinated and received at least one dose of the vaccine will also have a benefit. They will not have to show any negative test, and they will not be quarantined.
However, Croatia is currently facing the fifth wave of covid-19, and the spread of the disease is pretty hard to control. More than 2,000 new cases were registered yesterday, and at the end of March, the daily cases remained below a thousand.
Moreover, the country plans to give only one dose of vaccine to people who already had covid-19. According to the local epidemiologist Krunoslav Capak, the second dose has not been proven to affect immunity in any way.
Based on statistics from the Dnevnik.hr, there are 14,507 active cases in the country. Since the pandemic, over 332,000 people were infected, and more than 7,000 people have died from the virus.
