Required Documents to Apply
Ever since Game of Thrones debuted, the small south-central European nation of Croatia has been put on the map for tourists. The medieval cities draw millions of tourists every year, but that is not the only attraction. The beaches that open onto the Adriatic Sea are vibrant, even if tourists sometimes complain of their lack of sandy shorelines. Nevertheless, Croatia is a beautiful country with a rich history and culture. It's definitely worth the trip.
But before you leave for Croatia, you should check whether or not you need to apply for a visa. While Croatia is technically part of the Schengen Area Agreement, this law has not been fully implemented yet. Even so, the visa policy is quite lenient. Chances are that you just need a passport to visit. There are two categories of nationalities that are exempt from getting a visa: citizens of the EU/EEA and members of the Schengen visa waiver program. As long as you find your country of origin on one of those lists, you are free to book your travels.
Don't waste your time digging through the Schengen visa policy. Instead, we recommend that you try our Visa Checker Tool. Simply select your country of origin from the drag-down menu and choose Croatia as your destination. If you do not need a visa, then you are free to book your trip. However, if you need a visa, we provide a list of embassies you can use to apply.
Unfortunately, iVisa cannot process Croatia visa applications at the moment since electronic visas are not available for the Schengen Area. Nonetheless, we still want to help all travelers, which is why we offer a free 24/7 support service to answer any questions you have about the visa process.
If you need to get a visa, we recommend investigating your nationality's specific requirements before going to the embassy. While you can do that on the internet, we advise that you call the diplomatic mission itself. It is the most reliable source of information. Websites are not always updated, leading to critical application errors. Just give the embassy a call or email to find out more info. Nevertheless, what iVisa can tell you is that you need a passport valid for at least 6 months beyond your date of arrival in Croatia. For further information, contact the nearest embassy of Croatia.
As soon as electronic visas become available for Croatia, we will be among the first to be able to process your application. Until then, we wish you the best of luck at the embassy and safe travels.
