ZAGREB, Aug 23, 2020 – While British tourists are leaving Croatia from Zemunik Airport near Zadar, new guests from Great Britain are arriving at Cilipi Airport at Dubrovnik despite the fact that the UK has put Croatia on a list of epidemiologically unsafe countries, the Vecernji List daily reports on Sunday.

According to the eVisitor system for the registration of guests, there were 670,000 tourists in Croatia on Friday, including 12,000 Austrians, 70,000 Slovenians and 15,500 Britons. Of the total number, 120,000 were domestic guests.

Two planes with 120 British nationals landed at Dubrovnik on Friday despite the UK’s having put Croatia on its red list of epidemiologically unsafe countries and giving its nationals until Saturday to return home if they want to avoid quarantine.

“It is encouraging that despite that decision, Britons continue arriving in Dubrovnik. One of the reasons is that many work from home and no not mind quarantine. I hope that in the next few days we will manage to agree with the UK for it to switch from quarantine to a negative coronavirus test. London Airport can test 16,000 people daily and the City of Dubrovnik would cover the cost of testing, which amounts to £50 per test,” Mayor Mato Frankovic, who in recent days has stepped up a campaign to attract British guests and help maintain flights from the UK to Dubrovnik.

Most of the tourists in Croatia are staying in Istria, Kvarner and Split-Dalmatia and Zadar counties.
