Healthcare insurance

If you are an EU, EEA, UK or Swiss national and are covered by your country’s national health insurance provider, your coverage will cover any Covid-related services should they be required in Croatia just as they would be in their home country. Please take the time to check the validity of your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) and/or have a new one issued prior to your trip. Or alternatively have a Certificate issued by your national health care provider. Nationals of countries with which Croatia has a bilateral agreement (such as Bosnia & Hercegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, N. Macedonia and Turkey) are entitled to coverage by way of certificate as determined between national healthcare providers, which must be requested prior to travel to Croatia. Nationals of other countries should check their health insurance coverage prior to travel to ensure they are covered in case of emergency health services that include any Covid-related health issues or purchase adequate travel insurance that provides Covid-related coverage.
