We develop and maintain relations between the United Kingdom and Croatia. We are working with Croatia as a new partner and ally within the EU on bilateral, regional and global issues.

We encourage and support Croatia’s commitment to build on its pre accession to unlock the benefits of successful EU membership. We work on increasing trade and investment opportunities and encouraging a more open investment environment. In the run-up to Croatia’s EU membership, we worked on a number of twinning projects in which British experts and institutions assisted in various aspects of Croatia’s progress towards membership.

We work with Croatia’s armed forces to share expertise, educate personnel and further develop stronger ties between the countries ensuring that Croatia is a valued and trusted partner in maintaining peace.

We have a consulate in Split. The Croatian Coast is proving to be more and more popular for British tourists every year—more than 400,000 British tourists visit the country every year. Consular officials assist British tourists with a wide range of issues.
