Croatia Update – June 21
The Croatian Tourism Minister, Nikolina Brnjac, has announced that the country’s vaccination program is seeing extremely positive results, with over 60% of the tourism industry now vaccinated. This comes after the Balkan nation made a conscious effort to prioritise tourism workers at the start of their national vaccination program.
The news is a signifier of Croatia’s determination to welcome travelers back to its culturally rich and naturally idyllic lands. With almost two thirds of the country having now received their vaccinations, we can expect safe travel to be a realistic ambition in the near future.
In an announcement that accurately reflected Croatia’s welcoming character, Brnjac said of the vaccination effort’s success:
“All directors of tourist boards should be engaged to make tourists feel as safe as possible in their destinations, especially in terms of encouraging tourist workers to vaccinate and adhere to measures and establish additional testing points.”
On top of this, this Friday the European Union is expected to recommend that member states start lifting travel restrictions and allow US travelers to visit them once more. EU ambassadors agreed to add the US to the list of countries from which non-essential travel will be allowed. If approved, the exciting new recommendation would also include travelers who have not yet been vaccinated. This means that travel to Croatia from the US could soon be more than possible, it will be welcomed.
