Coronavirus outbreak

Croatian authorities have introduced new measures aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Since the number of infected people by coronavirus is decreasing in Croatia, the measures have been relaxed.

The hospital system is slowly returning to normal functioning, but all medical examinations need to be arranged in advance. Borders are open to Croatian citizens and to certain categories of foreigners, more information is available below, in the section of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.

The laws relating to stay and work of foreigners in Croatia have been amended and under these changes, the validity of stay and work permits for third-country nationals and EEA nationals and members of their families expired at 11. 3. 2020. (when the risk of corona epidemic in the Republic of Croatia was declared) is extended for the entire duration of the corona epidemic. New applications for these permits can be submitted within 30 days from the date of the declaration of cessation of the corona epidemic.

Kindergartens and primary schools are open, adhering to measures, as well as museums, libraries, and national parks. The citizens of Croatia are still obliged to act responsibly and abide by the implemented measures.

EURAXESS Centre in Zagreb is still helping foreign researchers and their family members in Croatia and can be contacted via e-mail.
