Country-specific Safety Information

Although since the end of the Balkan war, extensive demining operations were carried out in Croatia, there are still mine hazards in some parts of the country, particularly in the territories disputed until 1995 and along the former front lines. This affects following areas:

Eastern Slavonia (30 to 50 km from the border with Serbia and on the border with Hungary, especially areas around Vukovar and Vinkovci);

Western Slavonia ( area Daruvar , Pakrac , Virovitica );

The western and southwestern border with Bosnia and Herzegovina ( the area south of Sisak and Karlovac, east of Ogulin, Otocac , Gospic , on the eastern outskirts of Zadar and in the hinterland of the coast between Senj and Split and in the mountains southeast of Dubrovnik) .

In these areas, you are advised not to leave roads and paths. Warning: mines were often laid close to the roadside. Known minefields are indicated by triangular signs marked with warning "Ne Prilazite" . They might be marked by (yellow) plastic strips or by signs or by piles. Sometimes, however, they lack any marking. Debris land and abandoned buildings should be entered under no circumstances.

In the summer of 2005, an incident on the island of Vis showed that some landmines may have been also transferred to other areas that are not listed in the official Croatian overview (https://misportal.hcr.hr).

Natural Disasters

In the summer months due to the prevailing climatic conditions, bush and forest fires are common in Croatia. Travelers should pay attention to the media and, where applicable, advice of local authorities.

Specific Customs Rules

Travelers are in principle obliged submit a declaration for all goods carried. This also aplies for transit goods and goods, which will be temporary used in the Republic of Croatia. This shall include, for examle, a entrained laptop. Failure at reporting imported goods despite a request by the customs officials usually leads to criminal penalties. For custom free import, the value of the goods to be imported shall not exceed 300.00 euro overland and 430.00 euro by air traffic per person.

Vehicles that are registered abroad and the personal luggage (including, for example, also camera equipment, laptop, CD player) may only be used by the owner and not be lent to third parties. Violators will be viewed as customs offenders and subject to high customs penalties .
