ZAGREB, April 8, 2020 – Foreign and European Affairs Minister Gordan Grlić Radman on Wednesday announced that about 100 more Croatian citizens are returning home on Thursday from Tyrol, Austria.
“Tomorrow evening we expect the continuation of repatriation and the arrival of four busses with about 90 to 100 Croatian citizens from Tyrol,” Grlić Radman said.
He said that they were mostly seasonal workers “who in the midst of the pandemic have been left without jobs as well as all those who stayed after the winter season ended.” Tyrol has closed all ski resorts and hotels in an effort to combat the spread of coronavirus.
Grlić Radman added that Croatia’s diplomatic and consular network is working “committedly, thoroughly and responsibly on individual repatriations because there are Croatian citizens virtually throughout the world.”
“Here I am mostly referring to Australia, India, Canada, New Zealand, the Philippines and Thailand.”
