IMPORTANT GENERAL INFORMATION FOR BELGIANS TRAVELLING TO CROATIA
- Since 1st January 2023, Croatia is member of the Schengen area. Therefore, border control at borders between Croatia and Slovenia and between Croatia and Hungary are abolished as well as the border control at the airports for travel within the Schengen zone.
However Belgian travellers (adults and children) should always carry a valid travel document (passport or id-card) to travel in Croatia.
- Belgian tourists are encouraged to register themselves on the following website before travelling: www.travellersonline.diplomatie.be.
- Attention : Belgians who reported a lost ID before travelling but, in the meanwhile, found it again, are recommended to apply for a new ID because the old one may stay signalled as ‘lost’ and you could find yourself blocked at the border.
- In case you’ve forgotten or lost your travel document (or it was stolen) 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 (or it was stolen) and you are on Croatian territory, please contact the Embassy in Zagreb or one of our Honorary consuls according to your location in Croatia.
