Croatian Camps, Hotels and Resorts to Continue Opening in June
Things have been gradually opening up again, but when will Croatian camps, hotels and other such facilities be back into the swing of things in this state of ”almost” normalcy?
As Novac writes on the 23rd of May, 2020, after the Croatian Minister of Tourism presented the plan for the opening of the Croatian summer tourist season, which envisages that by the end of May – travel will be facilitated for Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and during June for Germany, Poland, and then for other countries which have a similarly certain epidemiological situation.
The Croatian tourism sector, through the Croatian Tourism Association, presented a plan for re-opening tourist facilities and recommendations for tourist travel to the Republic of Croatia.
The plan to open tourist facilities envisages the opening of Croatian camps in Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia and some hotels by the end of this month, and the full opening of most Croatian camps, hotels and all other tourist services across the country’s destinations is expected during June. Croatian borders are now open for tourists. Upon entry, tourists must have a confirmation of booking accommodation, and at the border they’ll receive instructions for a safe stay in the country.

A tourist application is also being developed, with which guests will be able to announce their arrival in advance and which will enable them to cross the border faster. The application will enable the introduction of a “fast line” regime of entry for tourists to Croatia by the end of the month.
During June, the countries from the main Croatian emitting markets are expected to enable their citizens to travel freely to Croatia and back, given the recommendations issued by the European Commission and the fact that Croatia is one of the countries with the lowest number of infected people in Europe. Owners of Croatian camps, hoteliers and other tourist workers are ready to welcome the opening of the season.
All standards in terms of safety for the stay of foreign guests have been implemented in Croatian camps, hotels and other accommodation facilities, as well as in restaurants and other such locations according to the recommendations of Croatian epidemiologists, the World Health Organisation and with regard to the recommendations from Croatia’s key emitting markets.
The director of the Croatian Tourism Association, Veljko Ostojic, is satisfied with the preparations for the opening of the summer season, and the first foreign guests have already arrived in Croatia.
”Croatia has an excellent epidemiological situation, and for most guests from key emitting markets, Croatia is a destination which can be reached by car. The Croatian tourism sector has adjusted its safety standards to both national and international recommendations, and we’re ready to welcome guests,” said the director of the Croatian Tourism Association, Veljko Ostojic.
Croatia has been managing the coronavirus crisis very effectively throughout the entire epidemic, and according to international organisations, it is one of the most successful countries in the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic in the world.
New cases of infection currently appear only sporadically and Croatia has one of the best epidemiological situations in the whole of the Mediterranean. The health care system and the public protection system in Croatia have responded well to the crisis and have, as such, done well in suppressing the spread of the epidemic. The Croatian health care system remains ready to respond in a timely manner in the event of a virus outbreak as tourism begins to wake up.
