ZAGREB, March 28, 2019 – Croatian MPs will debate several bills on Thursday, including preparations for the UK’s exit from the EU so as to enable British citizens to continue to enjoy their existing rights in Croatia after Brexit.
A bill on European Economic Area citizens and their families regulates temporary and permanent sojourn and proposes that UK citizens retain the status they already have when Brexit occurs.
This bill prescribes that they will keep either temporary or permanent sojourn and that, within a certain deadline, they should obtain a new sojourn permit in line with a special regulation so they can continue to stay and work in Croatia and deal with the negative consequences of a no-deal exit, said Interior Minister Davor Božinović.
With another bill, Croatia will enable British citizens to exercise mandatory health insurance coverage for up to one year after Brexit in case of a no-deal withdrawal, provided there is reciprocity. If there is no reciprocity, expenditures will be covered by the state budget.
