The Croatian Passenger Locator Form (also called Enter Croatia) is an online document including the health and travel-related detials of a person entering Croatia. The Croatian authorities introduced it amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Although the form is not a mandatory document, it is highly requested for all visitors to complete it before a trip with regard to their own safety as well as the safety of other travelers.
Enter Croatia General Information
Enter Croatia enables the Croatian Government to immediately notify a traveler about the potential coronavirus infection. The Croatia Passenger Locator Form has the form of a short online questionnaire that includes all the necessary information about the people entering the country.
The Croatian authorities did not make Enter Croatia mandatory to be allowed to cross the border of the country. Nevertheless, those travelers who have obtained the Passenger Locator Form before a trip to Croatia can benefit from it as the border control will be much faster for them.
Children traveling with parents or legal guardians can be added to the Enter Croatia of an adult’s traveler.
There is no specific time when the Passenger Locator Form should be filled out. However, it is highly recommended to do it before arriving in Croatia. In practice, you can start filling your form the moment you have your arrival date and the address of your Croatian accommodation.
