Decision on Temporary Suspension of Issuing Croatian visas
In the context of measures aimed at preventing and curbing the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Croatian authorities have adopted a decision on temporary suspension of issuing the Croatian visas. In line with this decision, which has immediate effect, all Croatian embassies/consulates, including the Croatian Embassy in Canberra, Consulate General in Sydney and Melbourne and Consulate in Perth, will not accept applications for new Croatian visas until further notice.
The only exemptions apply to family members of Croatian citizens (spouses or children) and holders of diplomatic/service passports. Both groups are requested to comply with the Croatian Civil Protection Headquarters measures for strengthening control over the coronavirus spread, which apply both to Croatian and foreign citizens.
