Important Notice

Attention to holders of UK travel documents issued to foreigners:

If you possess travel documents for refugees issued by states signatories to the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees of 28 July 1951 (Official Gazette – International Agreements No. 12/93), or travel documents for stateless persons issued by states signatories to the Convention Relating to the Status of Stateless Persons of 28 September 1954 (Official Gazette – International Agreements No. 12/93), the following information applies to you:

Recognized refugees, stateless persons, and individuals without any national affiliation residing in the United Kingdom or Ireland, holding a travel document issued by either of these countries, are exempt from obtaining a visa to enter the Republic of Croatia. They can stay for a maximum of 90 days within any 180-day period or transit through Croatian territory without a visa.

However, holders of UK Certificates of Travel are required to obtain a Croatian visa when traveling to Croatia.

Furthermore, in accordance with the Government’s Decision, the Republic of Croatia adheres to Decision No. 565/2016/EU, which states that visitors holding valid Schengen documents do not need an additional (Croatian) visa to enter Croatia.

Visitors who possess the following documents are exempt from obtaining a Croatian visa:

  1. Uniform visa (C) for two or multiple entries, valid for all Schengen Area Member States.

Visa with Limited Territorial Validity (LTV visa) is issued to individuals holding a travel document that is not recognized by some, but not all, Schengen Area Member States. This visa allows for two or multiple entries and is valid only in the territories of the Member States that recognize the travel document.

For stays exceeding three months, individuals can obtain a long-stay visa (D) from any Schengen Area Member State. Additionally, a residence permit can be issued by one of the Schengen Area Member States.

It is important to note that transit or intended stays in Croatia for a duration not exceeding 90 days in any 180-day period do not require a visa. More information on this can be found in Decision No 565/2014/EU, which is accessible at: [insert link].

When traveling to Croatia, the validity period of the Schengen documents mentioned above must cover the entire duration of transit or stay. Therefore, if an individual possesses a valid passport along with a valid “C 02” or “C Multi” Schengen visa that is accepted in all Schengen states, or a Schengen residence permit, they can enter Croatia and stay for up to 90 days. However, it is necessary to have at least one unused day remaining on the permitted days of the Schengen visa, as the days spent in Croatia do not count towards the days spent in the Schengen area. Please note that a C 01 Schengen visa does not grant entry into Croatia.

To enter and stay in Croatia, both the passport and the Schengen visa/residence permit must be valid upon entry, throughout the stay, and at the time of departure. It is important to mention that a C02 visa is not considered valid if both entries into the Schengen Area have been used before entering Croatia. Additionally, the passport must have a validity of at least 3 months beyond the planned departure from Croatia

Information for Holders of Residence Cards for Family Members of Union Citizens

Individuals who are family members of citizens from an EU Member State or the European Economic Area can travel to Croatia without a visa, provided they possess a valid passport and a valid Residence Card for Family Members of a Union Citizen issued by an EU member state (excluding the UK, as it is no longer a member state of the EU). Additionally, they must be traveling with or joining the family member who is a citizen of an EU Member State or the EEA. In the event that the family member does not possess such a card, they will need to obtain a Croatian visa, which will be issued free of charge.

Short-Stay Visa (C-Visa)

The short-stay visa, also known as the C-visa, grants visitors the ability to transit through or stay in the territory of the Republic of Croatia for a maximum of 90 days within any 180-day period. This visa can be issued for one, two, or multiple entries and is suitable for various purposes such as transit, tourism, business, private visits, or other valid reasons. The validity period of the visa is determined based on the specific circumstances of the visitor’s travel to Croatia, with a maximum duration of five years.

Please note that the information provided above is intended to serve as a guide for individuals holding Residence Cards for Family Members of Union Citizens. For further details and specific requirements, we recommend consulting the relevant authorities or official sources.

The permit must be valid for at least one month beyond the return date of your trip to Croatia. Alternatively, a C type visitor visa is also accepted, with the possibility of exemption for individuals who are visiting Croatia just before returning to their country of origin. In such cases, it is necessary to provide proof of a valid travel ticket to the country of origin. This exemption applies to tourists who are traveling through Europe at the end of their studies.

Means of Transportation: Depending on your chosen mode of transportation, please provide the relevant documents. This includes a travel ticket for airplane, bus, or boat, as well as a registration card

In order to obtain a visa for entry into Croatia, certain documents must be provided as proof. These include proof of entry into a third country, such as a visa issued for a third country if required, or proof of itinerary, such as a travel ticket.

Additionally, it is necessary to provide documents that demonstrate sufficient funds to support the stay in Croatia and to cover the return to the state of residence or travel to a third state.

For minors and individuals who are deprived of legal capacity, the visa application must be submitted by a parent or legal representative. This submission should include the birth certificate of the minor, if the parents are legal guardians, as well as the decision of the competent body designating the legal guardian.

If a minor is traveling without a parent or legal guardian, it is advisable to carry a notarized consent from the legal guardian. This consent should contain personal information of the parent or legal guardian, as well as details regarding the purpose, period, and length of stay in Croatia. The consent should also specify the period for which it is issued and include the signature of the parent or legal guardian.

It is important to note that all attached documents must not be older than three months.

During the visa application process, the Croatian Embassy may request additional supporting documents and/or certified translations, as well as the international certification (apostille) of the documents.

We kindly ask you to ensure that all required documents are provided accurately and within the specified timeframe to facilitate the visa application process.
