The Croatian National Civil Protection Committee decided on June 24 to introduce a 14-day self-isolation requirement for all passengers from Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo and North Macedonia, Zagreb reported.
The decision is effective as of midnight, June 24, and will refer to everyone travelling to Croatia from these states, regardless of their citizenship.
The Croatian interior minister, Davor Bozinovic, said at a press conference that the travelers would need to self-isolate at home or elsewhere for 14 days as of the day they enter Croatia.
The decision will not apply to transit passengers. Minister Bozinovic explained that the key element of the new regime was the degree to which the coronavirus trends in those states affected the number of cases in Croatia.
"We have recorded an increase in the number of infections, most of them coming from the direction of Bosnia, Serbia and Kosovo," the minister said.
Since the outbreak of the virus, Croatia has reported 2,388 confirmed cases and 2,145 recoveries. The death toll is 107.
