September 8, 2020 – Kvarner and Istria residents sent a public appeal to the Slovenian Government to change the entry measures of Slovene and other citizens coming from Croatia.

HRTurizam reports that in their appeal, they believe that the classification of the whole of Croatia in the red zone is not correct or justified, especially the inclusion of the Kvarner and Istria regions, since they recorded low numbers of infections for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic:

“In these regions, the prescribed anti-epidemiological measures are being conscientiously implemented; people are responsible and disciplined. That’s why we all feel safe here. Kvarner and Istria border directly with the Republic of Slovenia; the people who live here are firmly connected on both sides of the border. Families live in our two countries, and people travel to work across the border every day. Traffic to Slovenia from inhabitants of Kvarner and Istria is intensive due to the purchase of various goods and the use of various services, as is the traffic of the inhabitants of Slovenia to Kvarner and Istria for the same reasons. Joint EU projects from various spheres of interest are also being implemented in this area. Slovenes have their own houses and boats in Kvarner and Istria, and together with friends from Croatia, they go fishing, sailing, and maintain real estate and movables.

We socialize and cooperate in a way that preserves our health, but also our good relations. Please consider the possibility of monitoring and classifying the Kvarner and Istria regions separately, regardless of the situation in the whole of Croatia. Visits to Kvarner and Istria can be checked in the eVisitor registration system and via the mobile application “Stop COVID -19”.

Finally, we are aware of the dangers of conscientious and responsible people who adhere to mandatory anti-epidemiological measures. All this is confirmed by the positive COVID-19 results in Kvarner and Istria and the transmission of the virus on both sides of the border. We believe that there is no valid reason for Kvarner and Istria to be classified in the red zone for COVID-19 infection,” appealed the residents of Kvarner and Istria.

Finally, they conclude that omitting Istria and Kvarner from mandatory measures related to high-risk areas will help its citizens, friends connected with Kvarner and Istria, and add a new wind to better relations between Slovenia and Croatia now and in the future.
