Visa Requirements

A passport is required for travel to Croatia. A visa is not required for U.S. passport holders for tourist or business trips of fewer than 90 days within a six-month period. All foreign citizens must register with the local police within 24 hours of arrival as well as inform them of any change in their address. Registration of foreign visitors staying in hotels or accommodations rented through an accommodation company is done automatically by the hotelier or accommodation company. Failure to register is a misdemeanor offense; some Americans have been fined for failing to register.

Visit the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs website for the most current visa information.

Medical Requirements

Adequate medical care is readily available in Croatia, but the condition of hospital facilities may not be comparable to U.S. standards. Travelers to Croatia may obtain a list of English-speaking physicians and dentists at the Embassy’s web site. Make sure your health insurance plan provides coverage overseas. Most care providers in Croatia accept cash or credit card payments.

The single European emergency phone number 112 is active in Croatia for all kinds of emergencies. Ambulance service is effective; however, response times may be longer to more isolated areas.

For more information please visit the U.S. State Department Croatia travel page and our FAQ page.
