From April 1, Croatia opened entry into the country for Russians who have been vaccinated against coronavirus. In addition to vaccines recognized in Europe, tourists are allowed to provide a certificate of immunization with the Russian vaccine Sputnik V.
This was stated by the head of the Croatian Ministry of Internal Affairs Davor Bozhinovic. According to him, citizens of non-EU countries can visit the country with a certificate of vaccination, which will be valid for 6 months.
Davor Bozhinovic noted that now the European Union is working on the introduction of vaccination passports, but there is no common position on vaccines that are not recognized in the EU. Therefore, in Croatia, all vaccines are conventionally recognized so far.
The official also clarified that he is not talking about the liberalization of entry into the country without observing anti coronavirus measures, but a wider list of confirmations of the absence of infection among tourists will be applied.
Russian airline Nordwind started weekly flights between Russia and Croatia from the second half of March, and S7 airline plans to operate flights from the end of April.
