Czech tourists can enter Croatia without restrictions 22 days since the first vaccine
ZAGREB, May 29, 2021 – Czech tourists will be able to enter Croatia without further restrictions within 22 days of receiving the first COVID-19 vaccine, foreign ministers of the two countries announced on Saturday.
The decision is expected to come into effect next week, when “details will be finalized at expert level,” Croatia’s Gordan Grlić Radman told a press conference.
The agreement between Croatia and the Czech Republic is “an excellent model for other bilateral agreements with other states”, he added.
Croatia’s Tourism Minister Nikolina Brnjac said she would discuss the matter with her Austrian counterpart on Monday and all tourist-generating markets would be contacted.
Czech Foreign Minister Jakub Kulhanek said Croatia is fully prepared for the upcoming tourist season and a Czech train that arrived today was just the start as it will now bring Czech, Slovak tourists and Hungarian every day.
He said Croatia had allowed children under 12 to enter without restrictions and this was very positive for many Czech families.
Kulhanek announced that, as in previous years, two Czech consular offices will be opened this year, in Split and Rijeka, and that Czech police will arrive for joint patrols with the Croatian police.
He said Prague supported Croatia’s entry into the Schengen area because, he added, Croatia deserved it.
