As the Dutch warn their citizens against all but essential travel to Croatia amid the coronavirus pandemic, Germany decides to keep Croatia on its ”safe” list…
As Index writes on the 23rd of July, 2020, after the Dutch placed Croatia on the orange list, which means that those who return home to the Netherlands from Croatia need to spend fourteen days in self-isolation, some good news has arrived from Germany.
The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs has kept Croatia on its list of safe countries, the Croatian Tourism Association announced.
Below is their statement:
“In the latest report published today by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Croatia is [classed] as a safe destination and there are no restrictions on travel and return to Germany.
Germany is the largest European emitting market [for Croatia], and the Germans have been the most numerous group of guests in Croatia for many years. Since the beginning of this year, Germans have realised more than 4 million overnight stays in our country, of which 2.5 million took place during the first 20 days of July.
Since Bavaria, from which a third of German guests come, will start with their school holidays next week, a further increase of arrivals of German tourists in Croatia is expected.
In almost five months, since the first case of coronavirus infection was recorded in Croatia, there is still no official information that even one foreign tourist has become infected in the commercial tourism sector,” they announced.
