Passport and documents

Forum |

Croatia has relaxed entry requirements considerably in recent years in order to bring greater numbers of tourists to the country. Citizens of the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Ireland, Singapore and the UK no longer need a visa for stays of up to 90 days.

If your passport disappears right before your departure, take your flight tickets to your embassy or consulate and you will normally get a temporary passport enabling you to at least re-enter your home country.

A valid passport is necessary in order to enter Croatia. To avoid problems, it's best to ensure that your passport will remain valid
tor the entire course of your stay. Always make a photocopy of your passport and keep the photocopy in a separate place. In case your passport is lost or stolen, producing a photocopy of the original at your embassy or consulate will greatly facilitate its replacement.

If you want to stay in Croatia longer than three months, the easiest thing to do is cross the border into Italy or Austria and return.
Croatian authorities require foreigners to register with local police when they arrive in a new area of the country, but this is a routine matter normally handled by the hotel, hostel, camping ground or agency securing private accommodation. That's why they need to take your passport away for the night.
