August 25, 2020 – A big day for Croatia 2.0, as Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic and his cabinet express full support for a Croatian digital nomad visa, with the process starting later this week.
I am starting to believe.
A little common sense, a lot of positivity, and the determination of a few good men and women.
Is Croatia 2.0 about to become a reality, at least in part?
The revolution of common sense and future thinking started in Estonia, then continued in Barbados and the Republic of Georgia. And today – it seems – that revolution of positivity and a brighter future, which could revolutionise tourism and the economy has reached Croatia.
The full support of the Prime Minister and his Cabinet for the introduction of the Croatian digital nomad visa.
In SUCH a short space of time, as covered by TCN.

In the words of Dutch entrepreneur Jan de Jong, a Split resident and successful entrepreneur since 2006 on his LinkedIn profile, the latest stunning update:
Thank you Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic for taking time to meet today and for recognizing this great opportunity for Croatia. ??
It is truly amazing when you see that entrepreneurial ideas and suggestions are being heard and understood by policy makers.
Our Prime Minister told me that the introduction of a digital nomad visa was discussed earlier today during his meeting with his ministers – and that the cabinet fully supported this initiative.
By the end of this week changes to the Foreigners Act shall be proposed to parliament – which basically means that within 2 months after my open letter to our Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic here on LinkedIn – Croatia has managed to introduce a legal framework that would allow Croatia to start welcoming digital nomads ?
I believe! I really believe in a better Croatia. A Croatia:
✅ Where my children would want to stay.
✅ Where its citizens can enjoy among highest standards of living within Europe.
✅ From where digital nomads would want to work.
Thank you all for your support!
