A visa is permission for foreign citizens to enter the Republic of Croatia and for a stay of up to 90 days or for transit through the territory of the Republic of Croatia. The visa regime and amount of funds necessary for living expenses while staying in the Republic of Croatia and for returning to the country of origin or travelling to a third country are regulated by Regulations set by the Government of the Republic of Croatia.
A foreign citizen must obtain a visa before entering the Republic of Croatia at the competent diplomatic mission or consular office of the Republic of Croatia. If the Republic of Croatia does not have diplomatic missions / consular offices in a certain country, the visa application can be filed at the closest Croatian diplomatic mission / consular office in another country.
