As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, as the tourist season rapidly approaches and coronavirus cases continue on their downward trend, Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic spoke about the somewhat controversial topic of so-called ”Covid passports” and where Croatia currently stands.

“Croatia, as a country which relies heavily on tourism, has a strong motive to see all these solutions dealt with at the EU level, to be ready for its implementation as soon as possible. Our test was the first and we were the first to pass it successfully, not because we were first in line, but because some others weren’t ready. We’ve done that part and we’re ready. What has been published is legislation at the EU level. It’s important that the certificates aren’t referred to as travel documents, they’re certificates that can confirm in a credible way for each person that the person has recovered, that they’ve been vaccinated or that they’ve tested negative”, said Bozinovic.

“As for the parliament, I think the decision will be made on June the 7th, but that doesn’t prevent us from starting to these certificates earlier. We have a week ahead of us in which we’ll need to think about the new measures, given that the existing ones expire on May the 30th. Until then, we’ll see in which direction to go further with concessions,” he added.

”People who cannot be or haven’t yet been vaccinated will not have to pay to be tested,” Bozinovic assured.

Croatian test events: Everyone present returned a negative coronavirus test result.

When asked if the results of the pilot project had arrived since last week, Krunoslav Capak replied that they had results from the business event. There were 86 people who were vaccinated, and 32 who were vaccinated on the spot. “They’re all negative,” he said, which is extremely encouraging as we attempt to return to something like the old normal we were all so used to.

The second test event a wedding. “They were also all tested yesterday and we don’t have a single positive test,” Krunoslav Capak said.

“This is proof that in this way, if we provide access to the vaccinated, the sick and the tested, we can organise such events. We’re close to teturning to the old normal “, Krunoslav Capak assured.
