As Morski writes on the 13th of April, 2020, the Coastal Shipping Agency would like to inform Croatian islanders that they can apply for an island card (otocna iskaznica) through the e-Citizens system, which has grown in popularity ever since the coronavirus crisis struck, making a digital Croatia a reality much sooner than the powers that be would have us believe was possible.
The electronic island card application service for Croatian islanders is available via this link and on the official website of the Coastal Shipping Agency. The service will also be accessible directly through the e-Citizens portal upon selecting a service from the transport and vehicles category.
Users, more specifically Croatian islanders, will be able to apply for their island cards for a person or for a vehicle electronically, and will be informed via the e-Citizens platform about the status of their respective applications.
To successfully process an application when it is completed online, a payment must be made to the state for the issuance of the island card (65 kuna for the issuance of an island card for a person and 80 kuna for the issuance of a card for a vehicle) as well as a scanned photo for a personal document (dimension 35mmX45mm) in the case of an application for an island ID card for a person.
The completed and valid island card will then be delivered to Croatian islanders at the post office of their own choice, which they must make clear at the time of their initial application, and within twenty days from the date of approval of the request.
Requests will can still be made at the post offices listed here.
