Croatia and Bulgaria have both dropped all Covid-related entry requirements on Sunday 1 May, enabling travellers to enter the country without meeting any testing, quarantine or vaccination requirements.
The Croatian National Tourist Office (CNTO) stated: “All travellers entering Croatia can now do so under the same conditions of entry that were in force before the Covid-19 pandemic, i.e. with valid travel documents.”
It follows the expiry of the government’s Decision on Temporary Restriction of Crossing the Border Crossings of the Republic of Croatia emergency law, which expired on 30 April and was not extended.
Travellers to Bulgaria don’t need to provide Covid-related documents
Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry also released a statement, saying: “As of 1 May 2022, all Covid-19-related travel restrictions will be lifted. From this date on, all the arriving passengers will no longer be obliged to provide Covid-19 related documents (i.e., Covid-19 vaccination certificates, Covid-19 recovery certificates, Covid-19 medical examinations) in order for them to be allowed to enter the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria.”
The end of Covid restrictions in the two countries follows a wave of relaxations to border rules worldwide. Greece and Switzerland also removed all remaining Covid rules on 2 May.
