Croatia introducing Safe Stay in Croatia, designation and protocols for tourists

Safe stay in Croatia is a national designation of security protocols in tourism and hospitality that was initiated in 2021. It is awarded to stakeholders in the tourism sector by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports. This designation allows visitors to easily identify destinations, accommodation providers, transport, tourist attractions and other facilities that have adopted global standards for health and hygiene. The prominent Safe stay in Croatia label informs visitors that a tourist facility is operating according to the current recommendations of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) and the Croatian Institute of Public Health. By introducing this label, Croatia is putting visitor safety first. Find more here. Also, on THIS link you can find detailed information for your arrival and stay in Istria.
