Croatia

Summary

The EU Referendum held on 23 June delivered a clear vote for the United Kingdom to leave the EU. The Prime Minister has made a statement. In his statement, the Prime Minister reassured British people living in the EU, and European citizens in the UK, that there would be no immediate changes to their circumstances, and that there would be no initial change to the way people can travel. Until it leaves, the UK remains a full member of the EU. The period for exit, under the EU Treaties, is two years unless the other Member States agree to extend it.

Due to the significant number of people seeking to transit Croatia there may be disruption or delays at border crossings. Information on road border crossings and international rail journeys can be found at the Croatian Automobile Association (HAK) website. There are no reports of air traffic being affected.

Coastal tourist areas and towns popular with British tourists aren’t affected. The situation is subject to constant change.
