Entry Requirements for Croatia
For EU residents, a valid passport or identification card is necessary. For people coming from countries not in the EU, a valid passport (and valid visa if required) must be shown. Croatian citizens need to show valid ID.
Visits to a doctor or dentist
Some foreign health insurance certificates from health insurance institutions or complementary insurances are recognised. In any case it is advantageous to take out private insurance for the time you plan to be in Croatia. The organisation office can give you information regarding the closest doctor, dentist, emergency clinic as well as the nearest veterinarian or animal Hospital.
Currency in Croatia
The currency in Croatia is Croatian Kuna (HRK). Changing money from a foreign currency to Kuna is possible at all banks during the business hours. There are also many currency exchange offices in the cities. Changing money at airport or your hotel is not recommended. The safest way is to use a credit card (VISA or Mastercard, etc.) for purchases. Car rentals are not possible without a credit card. If you have a pin code you can also get cash from any ATM machine using your credit card.
Right hand driving is valid in Croatia. Please note that Croatian police pay special attention to the following things:
• All passengers must have their seat belts on
• The driver is not allowed, under any circumstances to use mobile phone while driving
• Strict alcohol control is carried out. The blood alcohol limit in Croatia is 0.5 per mille. You will be subject to substantial fine in case of exceeding that limit or your driving license may be confiscated in case of severe amount of blood alcohol.
