Entry into Croatia without border controls within the EU

On December 8, 2022, the member states of the European Union (EU) unanimously approved Croatia's entry into Schengen from January 1, 2023.

The Schengen area allows more than 400 million people to travel freely between member countries without going through border controls.

The entry of Istria/Croatia into the Schengen area means the abolition of border controls between Croatia and the 22 member states of the European Union as well as four countries outside the EU: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

From January 1, 2023, travel within the Schengen member states will be carried out without border control at land and sea crossings, while controls at airports will be carried out until March 26, 2023.
