Due to an increase in new cases of Covid-19, Croatia and Montenegro are imposing new restrictions on summer tourism to save the season.
Croatia limits gatherings to up to 50 attendees if they are unvaccinated. In comparison, larger events with up to 1,000 attendees can occur if all attendees are vaccinated or have a negative PCR test.
The number of Covid-19 cases in Croatia has increased by a third in the past week, mostly due to the Delta variant. “I am confident that we can achieve good results this season with small corrections in our lives,” Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic said.
Foreign visitors must present a vaccination certificate no older than 270 days, a negative PCR test no later than 72 hours before travel, or proof that they have recovered from the virus.
Montenegro has temporarily closed its nightclubs. In addition, authorities plan to reopen the centers on Monday, but only to those who are vaccinated or show proof of recovery from Covid-19.
Montenegro is currently open to UAE travelers without restrictions.
