Switzerland Considers Croatia Safe For Travel

Total Croatia News



ZAGREB, Aug 19, 2020 – Croatia remains on Switzerland’s list of countries safe to travel to, which is yet one more confirmation that countries consider Croatia to be a stable and safe tourist destination, Branimir Toncinic, an official of the Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ), said on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the health ministry in Switzerland updated its list of high-risk countries which now include Albania, Andorra, Aruba, Belgium, Belize, Gibraltar, Guam, India, Malta, Monaco, Namibia and Spain.

Toncinic, who is the head of the HTZ Austria branch that also covers Switzerland, today provided information about the updated list, pointing out that Croatia was not demoted that list.

“Including Croatia on the list of safe countries to travel to on the Swiss market is an important confirmation that they consider us to be a stable and safe destination. However the final decision is not made only according to the epidemiological situation but also based on the economic interests of individual countries,” HTZ director Kristjan Stanicic said. 

He added that it is still important to continue implementing epidemiological measures so that September and the post-season can generate tourism turnover from abroad.

HTZ informed that so far in August, tourists from Switzerland generated almost 140,000 bed nights, which is 82% of last year’s turnover on the corresponding period in 2019, and since the beginning of the year there have been 510,000 bed nights generated by Swiss guests or 55% of last year’s turnover.

Swiss tourists on the most part spend their vacation in Istria, Primorje-Gorski Kotar, and Split-Dalmatia counties.
