Campsites in Croatia are open and apply all hygienic and safety measures for your carefree holiday. Restaurants, bars, shops and other facilities within the campsites are open as well. Please check regularly updated recommendations and measures for your carefree holiday.

How can I enter Croatia?

From April 1st 2021, Croatia has introduced new rules regarding border crossing. If you are entering Croatia directly from EU countries or the Schengen area (from yellow and red areas), you’ll need:

  • a negative PCR test or one of the antigenic tests recognized for this purpose by the EU, not older than 48 hours;
  • or a vaccination certificate;
  • or a certificate of COVID -19 recovery in the last six months;
  • or perform a PCR testing or rapid antigen testing on SARS-CoV-2 immediately upon arrival in the Republic of Croatia (at you own expense), with the obligation to stay in self-isolation until the arrival of a negative test result. If testing cannot be performed, a measure of self-isolation is determined for a period of ten (10) days;
  • children under the age of 7 are exempted from the obligation to present a negative test result or to self-isolate if their parents have a negative PCR or RAT (antigen) test

All holidaymakers entering the Republic of Croatia must have a booking confirmation and for an even easier crossing of the border and a more effective epidemiological control, all foreign citizens travelling to Croatia are invited to register via the website EnterCroatia.

What health measures are prescribed in the campsites?

In order to spend a carefree vacation in a safe environment, measures have been prescribed for Croatian camps at the national level, with the aim to make all guests and employees in the campsites as safe as possible.

The basic rules, similar to the ones used for other public spaces, start with the social distancing of at least 1,5 meters. This rule applies to all areas of the campsite, from swimming pools and beaches to shops and restaurants. Also, in all enclosed spaces, the maximum number of people is limited so as not to create unnecessary crowds.

Disinfectants should be available at the entrances of common areas, while information on hygienic procedures will be displayed there too. Wearing masks in common areas is not mandatory, but it is recommended, especially if social distancing cannot be respected.

The check-in waiting time at the reception will be reduced to a minimum, and in addition with the prescribed measures, some campsites have developed their own apps for fast online check-in. In case of need, gloves, face masks and thermometers will be available to guests (on request).

It is recommended that guests use contactless payment methods and that the check-out is announced in advance, so that the process is as quick and easy as possible.

Sanitary facilities must be disinfected at least every two hours, and the frequency of cleaning can be increased if necessary. It is suggested to use private and family bathrooms wherever possible.

In restaurants, tables must be empty (no plates, glasses, cutlery) until guests arrive, and guests in a group or family may sit at the same table while the distance from other tables must be at least 1,5 meters. After the guests leave, the table will be disinfected together with the utensils (menu, salt, pepper, oil, etc.). The bars are open, and they also have rules such as table distancing while there is a ban on serving shared snacks.

For all additional information visit Croatia’s Tourist Board webpage with prescriptions for campsites or contact the desired campsite directly to get the most up-to-date instructions for your arrival in Croatia and the stay in our campsites.
