As well as this advice, check out our travel advice for Croatia.
Entry requirements and travel insurance
British citizens do not need visas to enter Croatia. Your passport should be in good condition and remain valid for the duration of your stay. You should take out comprehensive travel insurance in addition to bringing your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). The EHIC will give you access to Croatian health care if you have an accident or suddenly fall ill. You will receive the necessary emergency treatment and medical care at reduced cost. However, it does not cover costs such as medical repatriation, extra costs for accommodation or tickets in case you are not fit to travel, or cover stolen property so you should also take out travel insurance. Even if you’re only going for one night it could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties.
