Visas and Border Formalities
Citizens of the European Union do not need a visa or A residence permit to enter the Republic of Croatia. The same applies for a few other non-EU-member countries in the region, such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia or Montenegro. Entry is permitted on the basis of a valid identity card or a valid passport. Passengers from other countries must have a valid passport, and some might need a visa. A visa is an authorization for: transit through the territory of the Republic of Croatia or a stay in the territory of the Republic of Croatia for a maximum duration of up to 90 days in any period of 180 days, transit through the international transit area of the airport.
Types of visas are: air transit visa (visa A), short-term visa (visa C). Visas are issued by diplomatic missions or consular offices of the Republic of Croatia abroad. They can also be issued by a diplomatic mission or a consular office of another country with which the Republic of Croatia has made an agreement on representation in issuing visas.
