IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR BELGIANS TRAVELLING TO CROATIA

-  Since 1 July 2013, Croatia is an European Union memberstate. Attention: Croatia is not yet part of the « Schengen » zone, which means you will be checked at the Croatian border.

 - Belgian tourists are encouraged to register themselves on the following website before travelling: www.travellersonline.diplomatie.be.

-  Belgian travellers (adults and children) should always have a valid travel document (passport or id-card) to enter and leave Croatia.

- Attention : Belgians who reported a lost travel document before travelling but, in the meanwhile, found it again, should inform their local community at once before travelling to Croatia. If you fail to do so, your travel document will be signalled as ‘lost’ and you could find yourself blocked at the border.

- In case you’ve forgotten or lost your travel document and you are on Slovenian territory (including on the Croatian border but still on Slovenian territory), please contact our honorary consulat in Ljubljana or Embassy in Vienna.

- In case you’ve forgotten or lost your travel document and you are on Croatian territory, please contact the Embassy in Zagreb.

- Since 7 April 2017, Belgian travellers should be prepared to face longer waiting times at the Croatian border crossings because of stricter EU border controls. You can follow the situation at the land border crossings via the following link: http://www.hak.hr/en.

- The Kuna (+/- 7,4 Kuna = 1 euro) is the valid currency in Croatia.

- If you travel with pets (dogs, cats or ferrets), European Union legislation is also valid in Croatia: your pet should be micro-chipped and have a valid European Pet Passport.
