The tourists who will be permitted to enter Croatia will be mostly from the United States and a large part of Europe and travelers from the 27-nation bloc, who will be able to show either vaccination certificates, a negative test report, or a fully COVID -19 recovered certificate. Direct flights that are expected to start in July between New York – Dubrovnik will ease travel for American tourists.
