Entry into Croatia without border controls within the EU

On December 8, 2022, the member states of the European Union (EU) unanimously approved Croatia's entry into Schengen from January 1, 2023.

The Schengen area allows more than 400 million people to travel freely between member countries without going through border controls.

The entry of Istria/Croatia into the Schengen area means the abolition of border controls between Croatia and the 22 member states of the European Union as well as four countries outside the EU: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

From January 1, 2023, travel within the Schengen member states will be carried out without border control at land and sea crossings, while controls at airports will be carried out until March 26, 2023.

Which currency do I need while staying in Croatia?

The Republic of Croatia is a member of the eurozone since January 1, 2023, which means that the euro (€) is the new official currency and legal tender in Croatia (instead of kunas (HRK).

The euro is the common currency of the European Union and one of the main symbols of European integration. With the introduction of the euro, Croatia became the 20th member state of the euro area.

Fixed conversion rate: 1 € = 7.53450 Croatian kuna (HRK)

In line with a consistent record of exchange-rate stability, the kuna will be exchanged at a conversion rate of 1 euro for 7.53450 Croatian kuna.

Dual display of prices in Croatia, i.e. simultaneous labelling of prices in euros and kunas, is mandatory until 31 December 2023.
