Border crossing

As of 1st July 2013, the Republic of Croatia became a member of the EU, but the border police continue to carry out border control at the state border with all countries, including EU member states, until the Republic of Croatia joins the Schengen area. Customs duties are not performed at the state border with EU Member States.
Citizens of the Member States of the European Union or the European Economic Area, including citizens of Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and the Swiss Confederation, as well as the Principality of Andorra, the Principality of Monaco, the Republic of San Marino and the Holy See, may enter the Republic of Croatia with an identity card, through which identity and citizenship is proven.


To enter Croatia, you need a driver's and traffic license and a proof of the vehicle insurance. An international driver's license for possible car rental (rent-a-car), issued by the parent car club, is also desirable.
A driver who enters the territory of the Republic of Croatia with a vehicle with a foreign registration must have a valid International Car Liability Insurance Document valid in the territory of the European Union or some other proof of the existence of such insurance. International documents and evidence are considered to be the official registration plate carried by a vehicle normally stationed in the territory of a state whose national office is a signatory to the Multilateral Agreement, or a valid Green Card issued for a vehicle originating from a state whose national insurance office is not a signatory to the Multilateral Agreement, but with documents and evidence whose validity is recognized by the Croatian Insurance Bureau.
