New Travel Warning: Switzerland Includes Croatia on the Red List

Daniela Rogulj



September 5, 2020 – After Germany, Austria, and Slovenia placed Croatia or Croatian regions on the red list of countries risky for travel, a new blow has come, as Switzerland includes Croatia on the red list.

EZadar reports that according to the Swiss Federal Office of Health, Croatia will be included on the red list from Monday, September 7, 2020. Besides Croatia, Switzerland has included Ukraine and San Marino on the red list. Belgium and Luxembourg were removed from the list.


So, what does this mean? 

People arriving in Switzerland from the countries on the red list are required to go into quarantine. A negative test result does not exempt travelers from the mandatory quarantine requirement. More information can be found here.

Let us remind you that Germany put Sibenik-Knin, Split-Dalmatia, and Zadar counties on the red list over the last month. EZadar mentions that three more counties could be added to this list – Pozega-Slavonia, Dubrovnik-Neretva County, and the City of Zagreb. 

Travelers from Germany are not banned from traveling to these areas, but the country suggests passengers reconsider their plans. In addition, it allows passengers to cancel trips at no additional cost. 

Declaring an area risky in Germany means that those returning from vacation must be tested for coronavirus and remain in self-isolation until they receive a negative test result.

Unlike Germany, Austria and Slovenia included the whole of Croatia on the red list. Prime Minister Plenkovic asked Slovenia’s neighbors to reconsider the German model and to include only some parts of the country on the red list. 

Recall, Croatia remains on the UK quarantine as well, after it was added on August 22, 2020.
