Many our guests and fellow travellers ask us about situation with coronavirus in Croatia on daily basis. This is why we have pulled out great online resources which provide you with important information on travelling to Croatia during these challenging times. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us anytime. We’ll do our best to keep you responsibly informed. As always, we recommend to all travellers to purchase “cancel for any reason” travel insurance. We look forward to having you experience the magic of Lopud soon. Until then stay safe.
Can I travel to Croatia?
Answer is NO. Croatia closed its borders. Even Croatians are not allowed to move from their homes. The European Union has announced it has closed its borders to all non-European Union citizens. Travel within the European Union is restricted on a country by country basis. US Department of State advises U.S. citizens to reconsider travel abroad due to the global impact of COVID-19. If you are travelling from the U.S., check U.S. Embassy in Croatia for latest news. Other great resources on the matters of COVID-19 and travel are World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Harvard Health and European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
What will happen when I get to Croatia?
Croatia’s Government continues to take strict and decisive action to tackle and minimise the spread of the virus. Therefore all foreign nationals entering Croatia from infection hotspots including China, Italy, and South Korea will be subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine. Placement in quarantine is at your expense. Additionally, the Croatian Ministry of Health has implemented health monitoring and self-isolation measures aimed at individuals traveling from any COVID-19 affected countries. You can find updated list of the countries on the website of U.S Embassy. Also, check out Croatia Government dedicated page and Total Croatia website for excellent day to day overview of situation with coronavirus in Croatia.
Should I travel to Croatia?
No. At least for the time being. The country constantly puts tighter and tighter restrictions, everyone are asked to stay at home, almost everything is closed, people work from homes and there is a total ban on public events. You can have a look at the informative maps and news on the Croatian Government dedicated page and follow detailed reports on Total Croatia.
If coronavirus pandemic continues, will I get my money back?
Booking.com and Airbnb have introduced policies through which guests can cancel their reservations in Croatia and receive a full refund depending on their check-in date and the country they’re coming from. Make sure to check Booking.com — important information regarding coronavirus and
Airbnb — coronavirus updates.
Although our usual cancellation policy states that we have no-deposit return policy, we have decided that in these circumstances we need to update our policy. Therefore, all guests who cannot stay in our apartments due to closure of the borders will be fully compensated. We will be in touch with all the guests that are currently affected by this situation. Those who booked from May onwards we ask for patience so we can see if our borders will still be closed for travellers. If you wish, you can also choose to reschedule your stay. In this way all our guests who booked over Airbnb, Booking.com and directly over our website will be treated equally. If you have any questions whatsoever, please feel free to contact us. Stay safe!
