Entry information and entry form Croatia
Entry: Corona test and entry form
The Corona test must not be older than 72 hours (PCR test) or 48 hours (rapid antigen test) at the time of entry. According to the Croatian Ministry of the Interior, the relevant time for the Covid-19 test to be submitted is the time between the smear test and the arrival at the border crossing.
Persons fully vaccinated against Covid-19 may enter the country without testing. To do so, the vaccination certificate must confirm that the second vaccination dose (in the case of Johnson & Johnson, the only vaccination dose) was administered at least 14 days earlier. Those who have previously received only the first of two scheduled vaccine doses may also enter the country without testing if the initial vaccination was given at least 22 days but no more than 42 days ago (Biontech and Moderna) or at least 22 days but no more than 84 days ago (Astrazeneca).
In addition, individuals who have recovered from Covid 19 infection and can provide evidence of this also do not need Covid 19 testing. What is required is a doctor’s note certifying that recovery has been at least 11 days but no more than 180 days.
Those who cannot provide any of the above evidence must either enter a 10-day quarantine or be tested upon arrival and isolated until a negative result is received.

Corona Test FAQ
Why does the test cost 100 KN when there are free tests everywhere in Germany, Austria and Switzerland?
The employees, tests and the infrastructure for the tests cost money. The costs are not covered by the Croatian state. Therefore, it costs money.
Who earns money with the tests?
We don’t. Neither do the clubs.
How are the tests paid for?
