German RTL Publishes Map of Risk Countries – Croatia Remains on Safe List

Lauren Simmonds

As more and more countries begin adding Croatia to their list of ”no go” or ”red list” countries as a result of the rise in infection rates, Germany keeps Croatia on its list of safe countries. The German RTL has released a map with a detailed overview of the risk and safety of countries when it comes to the new coronavirus, published by the German Federal Office of Foreign Affairs.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 18th of August, 2020, under the title “Holidays in Spain, Turkey, Croatia – where it’s safest”, the German published a text and a “coronavirus map” showing the countries to which it is safe to travel for German nationals and residents, but also those that are currently on Germany’s “red list” .

Croatia is still marked in green, meaning that it is one of the safe countries for holidays for Germans.

The description of Croatia states that Croatia allows entry to all citizens of EU member states. But after entering the country it is necessary to leave contact information.

”In order to avoid long waits when crossing the border, the Croatian Ministry of the Interior recommends that you fill in the appropriate form online in advance. There is no obligation to quarantine, nor is there any obligation to test for coronavirus,” writes the German RTL,, and reports Felix magazine.

They note that almost all of Spain is marked as a risk area for coronavirus, but the German Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs withdrew warnings for some Turkish provinces back in early August.

As some begin to suspect that the warnings being issued by some European countries against travel to Croatia has more of a political nature than it does of health, it is encouraging to see that Germany isn’t condemning Croatia in the way Austria recently has.
