Announcement on ACI Marinas website 16 May 2020:

The temporary ban on crossing the borders of the Republic of Croatia related to foreign citizens has been lifted for owners of real estate and vessels located in the Republic of Croatia and for the members of the owner’s immediate family.
Foreign citizens being owners of yachts and boats located in the Republic of Croatia can cross the country borders upon presenting the documentation proving their ownership of a vessel, documentation proving that they are the users of a vessel (Charter Contract or Lease Agreement). Along with the documentation proving the ownership of the vessel, a berth contract and/or a confirmation of the nautical tourism port must be submitted confirming that the vessel is berthed at the respective port.

Upon presenting the required documents, foreign citizens shall be allowed to cross the state border and shall be registered by entering the place/address of their stay, contact phone number and period of stay – until the planned date of departure from the Republic of Croatia.

Foreign citizens are required to adhere to general epidemiological measures during their stay in the Republic of Croatia, as follows:

During the first 14 days following the entry into the Republic of Croatia, leaving the accommodation/vessel is limited only to absolutely necessary situations, carrying out the enhanced ongoing implementation of hygienic measures.

When leaving the accommodation for necessary purposes, it is recommended to wear a mask or a covering for the nose and mouth, to keep a physical distance from others (minimum 1,5 meters) and to practice good hand hygiene.

Wash your hands as often as possible using warm water and soap and/or use a hand sanitizer rubbing it well over the surface of your palms. Avoid touching your face, mouth, nose and eyes.

Avoid using public transport. When using the means of transport, it is recommended to use it alone or to share it only with the persons from the same household/accommodation.
