Boost for Brits as top EU holiday destination drops all Covid entry rules

CROATIA has scrapped all remaining Covid-19 travel restrictions.

Holidaymakers will no longer need to show proof of vaccination or negative Covid test result to gain entry to Croatia.

Croatia now joins a list of more than 15 European destinations that have ditched all restrictions.

A statement read: "All travellers entering Croatia can now do so under the same conditions of entry that were in force before the Covid-19 pandemic, ie with valid travel documents".

To gain entry into Croatia, British tourists must have a passport with at least three months validity remaining after the date you plan to leave the country.

Your passport must also be less than 10 years old on the day you enter Croatia, and not be damaged or have missing pages.

"With a number of new hotels, restaurants, and events confirmed for this summer, Croatia is set for a strong season ahead."
